Luxemburg court orders Petronas units seized again over Sulu heirs claim

A LUXEMBOURG has this week issued fresh seizure orders for two units of Malaysian state oil firm Petronas as the Filipino descendants of a former sultanate bid to enforce a RM66 billion award they won against Malaysia, Reuters reported today.

The heirs of the last sultan of Sulu were last year awarded the sum by a French court after arbitration, in which Malaysia did not participate.
