Sabah's 40% revenue rights: Appeals court adjourns hearing of Federal Govt appeal

KOTA KINABALU: The Court of Appeal has adjourned the hearing of the Federal Government's appeal against a Kota Kinabalu High Court decision to grant Sabah lawyers leave for a judicial review of Putrajaya's constitutional duty to pay the 40% revenue entitlement to the state.

A three-judge panel comprising Justices Ravinthran N. Paramaguru, Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali and Dr Choo Kah Sing, sitting in the state capital, fixed May 24 for case management before issuing their reserved judgement.

On Thursday (May 16), all three parties in the case - namely the Sabah Law Society, Federal Attorney General’s Chambers and the Sabah government - completed their submissions for the case.
