Last year the International Court with jurisdiction in such matters ruled that this island, ownership of which was claimed by Malaysia, actually belonged to Singapore. That should have been that. But no. Malaysia is seeking a review of the judgment according to AG Apandi.
In itself that is a matter of little importance but the fuss being made round it by Malaysia is interesting. Why this sudden publicity over a matter which will not come to Court for months or years. Is it becauseSingapore ,through Mr. Lee, has suggested that the appeal is linked to the1MDB case in Malaysia.?
