Kota Kinabalu: Caretaker Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal has threatened to sue Petronas if it fails to pay the state sales tax (SST) on petroleum products due to Sabah.

He was responding to recent reports on the national oil company having paid the Sarawak Government RM2.96 billion in SST arrears on petroleum products for 2019.

“If the Sarawak State Government can be paid, we should also be paid equally, because what has been embedded in the rights of Sarawak is also embedded in the rights of Sabah. If they do not pay Sabah, I will bring this to court,” said the Warisan president during his election campaign rally at Dewan Sri Putatan, near here, Friday.
