Voon Lee Shan hopes to receive universal support from Sarawak People
(Kuching June 19th) The Parti Bumi Kenyalang President Voon Lee Shan stressed today that the party’s goal is to continue the movement of the late former Chief Minister, Tan Sri Pehin Sri Haji Adenan bin Satem, in quest of Sarawak Independence..
He said that since Adenan announced that July 22nd for Sarawak’s Independence Day, Sarawak’s movement to seek Independence has begun, but it has not yet been completed, so the Parti Bumi Kenyalang will seek to adopt UN Resolutions 1514 and 1541, not only by voting.

A peaceful way or take legal action to decolonize from federation of Malaysia and ensure the dream of independence in Sarawak. He said that according to many legal experts in the past, Sabah and Sarawak were in fact the Federation of Malaya, which converted the territory of Sabah and Sarawak into a colony of the Malayan Federation by acquiring the British colonies at that time.
