Have you been been named as a heir in a final will before?
Asuming; someone close to you had passed away; whether family or friend.
The administrator (executor) of the deceased’s estate have informed that you had been named as a heir in the final will of the deceased.
This means that you are a joint-heir (beneficiary) of an inheritance of properties, possessions, stocks or cash.
Important Legal Points *
1. The testator is the writer of the final will. He appoints the executors and names the heirs entitled to receive the inheritance.
2. The heirs cannot be changed. You have a lawful right to receive everything as stated in the will.
3. The contents of the final will cannot be changed. The executor of the estate does not have the power to change the final will; to make the final will any ‘better’.
4. The executor is given the mandate to distribute the estate only according to the instructions in the final will as stated by the testator.
5. The executor cannot be changed unless the court is convinced of the executor’s incompetence. Hence, only by court order.
This Is Our Story *
This happened in historical Malaya before 31st Aug 1957. Now the story becomes very interesting.
The 9 Malay Sultans had bequeath Tanah Melayu (combined) which were ruled by the Malay Monarchy for the past 500 years.
This enormous estate was a bequeathment to millions of Malaysian citizens as joint heirs.
The Dynamics Of The Will Is Activated *
Testators – the 9 Sultans at the time of Merdeka.
Final Will – the Federal Constitution including other agreements.
Joint heirs – you, me and all the citizens of Malaysia.
Executors – the 9 Sultans forming the Rulers Council.
Chief Executor – the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King) representing the Rulers’ Council.
Inheritance – the privileges of citizenship, the form and character of Malaysia that we live in.
What a beautiful parallel of principles between:-
> Receiving our inheritance as heirs.
> “Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” leaving an inheritance to all Malaysians.
“Tujuh Wasiat Raja-Raja Melayu” clearly states that its seven immutable declarations cannot be changed without the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal.
Recently, former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir made an apology on his website.
“I would like to apologise for the amendment to the Constitution which made the approval and signature of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (the King) no longer necessary for the legalising of an Act of Parliament.”
BASED ON TUN DR. MAHATHIR’S ADMISSION OF WRONGDOING,
AND ON BEHALF OF 30 MILLION MALAYSIAN CITIZENS,
I appeal for a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to be established to investigate the Federal Constitution amendments in 1983, 1993 and 1994.
1. If the present 9 Sultans were acting as ‘executors of the will’, who has the lawful authority to transfer the ‘executor’s powers’ to the politician’s vote?
2. Were the Sultans (being executors) subjected to duress when Their Majesties consented; knowing that the enacted Acts will diminish the ‘powers of the executors’?
3. Was there a nationwide referendum to seek the consent and approval of all Malaysians since their best interests would be affected as ‘joint-heirs of the final will’?
4. Were Malaysian citizens duly informed on the politicians’ decision to sideline the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal in the Constitutional amendments?
5. Were Malaysian citizens informed that any bills in Parliament that does not receive royal assent will automatically become law of the nation within 30 days?
6. Was there a written or verbal consent recorded from the 30 million Malaysians being ‘joint-heirs’ and beneficiaries?
These imperative questions need to be answered urgently as the situation can affect the integrity of our institutions and the rule of law.
Unless and until a nationwide referendum is held to obtain the consensus of the 30 million Malaysians;
Any amendments to the Federal Constitution that diminishes the Agong’s (King’s) powers since 1983;
Should be scrutinised of its lawful standing; and if such are identified as conflicting with the rule of law; these Acts should be completely repealed, rejected and retracted.
I humbly appeal that the Agong’s (King’s) signature and royal seal to be made compulsory once again for the legislation of laws in the Parliament.
5th Aug 2017, Konvensyen “Memperkukuh Pasak Negara.”
This noble step is in accordance to the sacred agreements made pre-Merdeka and this fully abides by the rule of law.
Furthermore, this will restore the glory and majesty of the King’s institution; as the Head of the Government; which is highly exalted by the Malays and non-Malays.
