A statement from the State Administrative Unit of the Chief Minister's Department of the state Government of Malaysia's state of Sarawak, contains the declaration of July 22 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Malaysia's state of Sarawak, to be known as the "Sarawak Independence Day".

At the beginning of this year (13-Feb-2016), the Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Sarawak, Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem, had announced that Sarawak State had requested from the Malaysian federal government that July 22 be declared a state non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Sarawak.

A month later (20-Mar-2016), the same Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Sarawak, Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem, then announced that his government was "set to make July 22 a public holiday[in Sarawak]in recognition of those who helped fight for independence from British rule in 1963".

Finally, late last month (23-Apr-2016), Sarawak Chief Minister Sri Adenan Satem, finally announced that his government had declared July 22 as a new annual non-working state public holiday in Malaysia's State of Sarawak to commemorate Sarawak's independence from British colonization.
