Please hang on to historical documents

IT is no use blaming one another for our failure to keep proper historical documents which led us to lose Pulau Batu Puteh.

What has the National Archives Department got to say regarding the documentation of Pulau Batu Puteh? The function of the National Archives Department is to keep all historical documents and I understand that the documents are kept in microfilm under great security.

Why should we then set up a Historical Documentation Centre and duplicate the function of the National Archives?

The most important thing now is to ensure that all documents are intact pertaining to the other islands in the straits as well as the South China Sea. Let’s not be caught napping again!
