Sulu Malaysia Arbitration Briefing

Welcome to the website of the Claimants in the case of the Sulu Heirs against Malaysia (Fornan et al v Malaysia). Here you will shortly find facts, documents and extensive details about the history, progress and disposition of the legal case.

Malaysia has established its own website about the case, which you can access here. You may find that the Malaysian account is one-sided, unnecessarily nationalistic and notably lacking in key documents.  Like the country’s press statements and interviews, the website indeed even pretends key court judgements didn’t happen.

Our website will be different. We are committed to telling you the whole truth about the case, in all its complexity, and you will be able to judge both sides.

Please stay posted. We will be live soon.

Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please address them to  For the media, please use
