KUALA LUMPUR, July 9 – The Kelantan state government’s demand for RM1 billion in oil royalty was made not according to the law, said Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim.

“This is different from the oil royalty enjoyed by the Terengganu state government as it is disbursed on the goodwill of the federal government, not derived from the rights under the laws,” he told reporters after presenting the 1Malaysia songwriting competition commendation certificates here today.
