The police have received a report regarding actions taken against a group of people claiming to be the heirs of the Sulu Sultanate and who had submitted claims through a notice of arbitration in excess of US$32 billion.
Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said the report was lodged by the Prime Minister's Department's legal affairs division director-general Khairul Dzaimee Daud following a demand to the Malaysian government on July 30, 2019.
"The claim is a threat to national security. The police, through Bukit Aman's criminal intelligence unit, have launched investigations under Section 124(k) of the Penal Code for sabotage.
"The PDRM takes seriously any element that could disrupt public order, especially acts of sabotage against the security, sovereignty and stability of the country, and guarantees that a detailed investigation into the matter will be conducted," he said in a statement today.
