2013 Mar 28 - SAPP: 999-year leases are legal and rightful

999-year leases are legal and rightful

KOTA KINABALU, March 28, 2013: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee said the State Government is not being honest in explaining its illegal confiscation of property rights by unilaterally replacing the "999 lease" with only "99" years. Among the many cases that have come to my attention, one case did not even involve a sub-divided title from the original land title.

He said the Land department simply deleted the words "nine-hundred and" from the original term "nine-hundred and ninety nine", leaving only the words "ninety nine". The land title concerned was issued in 1951. As a result, the land owner whose original land tenure had a balance of 941 years suddenly was left with only 37 years, thereby rendering the entire land worthless.

"I told the land owner, who came to the weekly SAPP Mobile Service Centre at Gaya Street, to wait till the coming general elections. SAPP will reinstate the 999-year land titles as promised in the SAPP Manifesto.

"It is a lie by Sabah's ministers that the 999-year land title cannot be done under the law. The Sabah State Government used to recognise and accept 999-year leases but this has been discontinued about two years ago. When I was Chief Minister from May 1996 for two years, I had also approved 999-year leases because 999-year land leases are legal and rightfully belong to the land owners.

"With due respect, the director of Lands and Surveys, Datuk Hj. Osman Jamal must reveal the truth that he is under instruction from his political masters to confiscate 999-year leases.
