In a strongly-worded Facebook post on Thursday (June 30), the Rengit assemblyman slammed the former prime minister for causing the country to lose its claim over the rock forever. Mohd Puad said he supported Mentri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi’s call for legal action to be taken against those responsible for the loss of the island. “Though Dr Mahathir’s name was not mentioned (by Onn Hafiz), everyone knows it is he who is responsible. “But as long as Apandi or any other person with a conflict of interest is involved, I will not talk to them,” said Dr Mahathir when met by reporters outside the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) yesterday. “We can no longer sit and do nothing.

The ICJ then set June 11, 2018 for the hearing, he added. “If they had said this in a reply to my letters, I wouldn’t have even come today,” Dr Mahathir told reporters after leaving the AGC here. However, on May 14, 2018 (four days after Pakatan Harapan formed the Federal Government), Mohamed Apandi was asked to go on leave and then solicitor general Datuk Engku Nor Faizah Engku Atek assumed his place, said Mohd Puad. “On May 28, which was 18 days after Dr Mahathir became prime minister, the solicitor general wrote to the ICJ to withdraw the judicial review application. That was a black day for the country. Apandi was the attorney general in 2017 when the government applied to review the ICJ decision in 2008, which ruled that Singapore had sovereignty over Batu Puteh.

On Monday (June 27), Onn Hafiz said the Pakatan government had erred when it withdrew the application for a review of Batu Puteh.
