Zainnal Ajamain, Author and MA63 activist | Professor James Chin, Director of the Asia Institute Tasmania at the University of Tasmania
In July this year, Sarawak announced that it was sending a delegation of legal representatives to London to search and study any references to the state’s rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963, otherwise known as MA63. The announcement drew ire from some political parties, questioning the purpose of the trip and how it’d invite foreign intervention. Sarawakians have retaliated saying it goes to show how little Peninsula Malaysia understood them. We speak to Sabahan Zainnal Ajamain, a MA63 activist, and Sarawakian, Professor James Chin, from the University of Tasmania, to better understand what was in the Agreement and what rights the state is fighting for today.
