PH should revive claim on Sabah – poll

/ 03:19 PM April 23, 2013

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines’ claim on Sabah should be revived, most respondents of the recently concluded unofficial poll said.

To the poll question “Should the Philippines revive the Sabah claim?” 21,993, or 85.72 percent of the total 25,658 respondents said yes, while only 3,665, or 14.28 percent voted no to the month-long poll.


In February, armed Filipinos led by the brother of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, sailed to Lahad Datu in a bid to assert the country’s claim over the disputed territory.

The attempt of Kiram’s “Royal Army”, however, resulted in deaths and arrests of several members of the Filipino gunmen.
