SEMPORNA – Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Shafie Apdal is ready to face former statesman Tan Sri Musa Aman in court on the Yayasan Sabah issue.

“They have issued a statement of summon, so let’s meet in the court,” Shafie said to the media after visiting the fire victims at Sri Aman Semporna.

On a separate note, Shafie refused to comment on the issue of Prime Minister candidate’s choice from Pakatan Harapan, when further asked by the reporter.

“I am more concerned to serve the Sabah people and it’s my main priority,” he added.

Yesterday, Tan Sri Musa Aman issued a letter of demand to Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal and the Sabah Foundation Board of Trustees, among others, seeking them to pay RM1 billion to his chosen charity bodies.

Musa also stated that all demands must be fulfilled within 24 hours after receiving his letter of demand and all parties must refrain from repeating the said statement or other sentences carrying the same meaning.

On Friday, the state-owned foundation’s director, Jamalul Kiram Mohd Zakaria, filed a suit against Musa in a bid to recover RM872 million that allegedly went missing during his tenure as the chairman of the board of trustees.
