The issue of losing sovereignty over a single part of Malaysian land does not seem to be a big deal for former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

In fact, such a loss is just a trivial matter for him, who is also a Member of Parliament for Langkawi.

Referencing the loss of Malaysian ownership of Pulau Batu Puteh is no big deal and Mahathir blamed the Johor state government for denying ownership of the island.

Malaysia missed the opportunity to reclaim the island after Mahathir decided to withdraw the review and interpretation of the ruling on the island’s sovereignty case, as well as Batuan Tengah and Tubir Selatan in 2018.

It was made a few days before the case is to be heard at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on June 11, 2018.

“The island is gone forever, thanks to Tun Mahathir. He decided to drop the case a few days before the trial date at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

“At that time, I was ordered to license as a prosecutor general,” Attorney General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali said.

When the ICJ ruled in 2008 that Pulau Batu Puteh was the country’s right, it also involved the island’s waters.

On May 23, 2008, the ICJ ruled that Singapore was entitled to Pulau Batu Puteh while Batuan Tengah, located less than a kilometer from the island, belonged to Malaysia and ruled that Tubir Selatan, about four kilometers from Pulau Batu Puteh , would be determined by the territorial waters of the country that controls it.

Malaysia filed an application for review on February 2, 2017 and June 30 of the same year, asking the court to interpret its judgment on the sovereignty of Pulau Batu Puteh, Batuan Tengah and Tubir Selatan delivered on May 23, 2008.

The request for review was filed based on Malaysia’s new findings through three key documents, which show that the senior Singaporean official never considered that he acquired sovereignty over Pulau Batu Puteh from Johor.

Two of the documents, which were only made available to the public after the ICJ handed down its ruling, also showed British Navy officers acknowledging that the island’s waters belonged to Johor.
