The Borneo Post - - HOME -

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Barisan Na­sional chair­man Tan Sri Musa Aman yes­ter­day filed a writ of sum­mons against Yang Diper­tua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahirud­din and Parti Warisan Sabah pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Shafie Ap­dal seek­ing a dec­la­ra­tion that he (Musa) re­mains the law­ful chief min­is­ter of Sabah.

The writ also seeks a dec­la­ra­tion that the swear­ing in of Mohd Shafie as chief min­is­ter by the Yang Diper­tua Negeri is un­con­sti­tu­tional.

It also seeks a dec­la­ra­tion that any and all acts by Shafie whilst pur­port­ing to be the chief min­is­ter are also null, void and of no effect.

The writ was filed by Messrs F.T. Ah­mad & Co. who are act­ing for Musa and it named Tun Juhar and Mohd Shafie as the first and sec­ond re­spon­dents, re­spec­tively.

Un­der the Rules of Court 2012, once the writ is served, both Juhar and Shafie have 14 days to en­ter an ap­pear­ance.

Musa was sworn in as chief min­is­ter on May 10 and Mohd Shafie on May 12. — Ber­nama
