Clause 4(3) of the 1997 enactment stated that ‘no declaration (of cultural heritage or conservation area) shall be revoked or amended without the prior approval of the Sabah Legislative Assembly given by way of a resolution.’
In other words, Yong said it is only after a resolution of the assembly had been obtained that the Sabah Heritage Council and minister may present the proposed revocation of the heritage site to the Head of State (TYT) for consent.
“The idea of having to get a resolution of the legislative assembly beforehand is to ensure a strong deterrent against abuses by the government. This is because the process of obtaining a resolution of the assembly will necessarily bring the proposed degazetting of the heritage conservation area into the public arena. This will force the ministers and officials to explain and defend their decision (to revoke a heritage area) to the public. It is to be expected that media and environmental groups will come to know about the proposed revocation of a heritage site and make their views known. Public opinion or outrage will act as a deterrent against abuses by the government.
