New Outrage – Taking Care of My Son By Robbing My People!

New Outrage – Taking Care of My Son By Robbing My People!

This post is also available in: Iban, Malay

Another chunk of Sarawak handed to the Taibs?

Sarawak Report has uncovered an explosive situation in Sri Aman, where we can reveal that the Chief Minister is in the very process of trying to sell off land which he gave free to his son, for a multi-million ringgit profit.

The 22,000 acres in question (8,800 hectares) is in Bijat Land District, Sungai Tisak.  It is established Native Customary Rights Land belonging to Ibans, according to Sadia the Iban rights group.  They say at least 15 communities will be affected by the acquisition of the land for oil palm plantation, however no warning has been given to these communities and no offer of compensation has been made.

Is this what the State Government means by “more aggressive conversion”

Local Iban people, who say that loggers moved into their area unannounced 4 months ago, have only just discovered the situation that is unfolding and they have reacted in fury.  No one has informed them who the loggers are and they did not know about the involvement of Taib’s son in plans to convert their area to oil palm!

One resident, who contacted Sarawak Report exclaimed “Imagine they are going to make millions of ringgit and the Dayak suffer!”.  

The development comes just days after Minister James Masing on behalf of the State Government informed journalists that BN is planning a “more aggressive conversion” of Native Customary Rights Lands in Sarawak to oil palm plantation.  This, despite international condemnation of the destruction of the environment and the illegal abuse of the human rights of the Dayak.  If they win the next election BN plan to DOUBLE the area of oil palm to 2 million hectares by 2020.  

Abu Bekir (Taib's son) is the main shareholder of Titanium Management

Clear corruption

It is clear who is going to make the money from this land deal and so-called ‘development’.  It is not for nothing that the local people have been kept in the dark about the whole plan that was hatched in the Land Survey Department, which Taib Mahmud controls as Minister of Planning and Resource Management.

As long ago as December 2008 the land was officially handed to Titanium Management Sdn Bhd, a company that is mostly owned by his son and a well-known business crony of his, Chris Chung.  Titanium Management  has been involved in a number of high-profile scandals over its receipt of state contracts in recent years, for which there seemed no qualification beyond the son’s relationship to the father.  This large area of valuable land was given to Taib’s son in returned for an unspecified “payment in kind”!  Such ‘payments in kind’ are a favourite method of doing business between the Sarawak government (run by Taib) and his own family members and it means that no payment has been properly identified.  Effectively this NCR land belonging to the Ibans was given for free and without compensation, unless the Taibs can come up with a convincing explanation! 

Disgraceful attempts to make a fat profit

Experienced businessman? Mahmud Abu Bekir Taib

Titanium’s Manager, the above mentioned Mr Chris Chung, is now known to be attempting to hawk the land to the Malaysian Government body FELCRA.  Sarawak Report would like to ask if this is what is meant by ‘applying for Federal Government assistance to develop land in Sarawak’ that BN’s James Masing also referred to in his announcement?  In which case all the Federal money will go to Taib’s son and his crony alone.

Chung is believed to be asking FECRA for at least RM 3,200 per acre, but is trying to secure RM 4,200 per acre.  This would make a windfall profit to Titanium Management’s shareholders of between RM 70 million and RM 93 million!  All for land they were handed for free by Daddy!

This may be a case of ‘Kind Papa’ looking after his kids, but it is also a case of a cruel, ruthless and greedy despot grabbing land from his people to hand to his own already wealthy family.  Taib said recently “I have more money than I can ever spend, so I leave it to my children to look after”.  Why must he then continue to rob his people?

This is happening all over Sarawak and BN plans to double the land it takes

The pattern of activity here, right by the town of Sri Aman, has been repeated countless times all over Sarawak.  Nicholas Mujah from Sadia, when notified of this particular case by Sarawak Report confirmed that to take Native Customary Land in this way without notification is an abuse of the law. 

Indeed it is only later this morning (Thursday) that 16 Headmen are due to meet officials at the District Land Office, after being summoned just two days ago by letter.  The Headmen were given no inkling in their letter of what they have been summoned for but they suspect that it relates to this removal of their land.  If so the notification has come more than two years AFTER the deed has officially taken place! 

On the other hand, our information suggests that Taib’s son has yet to succeed in closing his deal with FELCRA, most likely because he and his business partner have been too greedy in the price they are asking.  If this is the case there may still be a chance for the Ibans to frustrate what has clearly been an illegal transaction!

In similar deals, Taib’s family have been very quick to sell on their shares and take their profits along with some shares in the subsequent plantation business.  On this occasion, faced with such exposure, the buyers may feel wary of proceeding. 

Likelihood of a bitter battle ahead

Soon to be taken for another oil palm plantation

Certainly, there is every sign that the Ibans of Sri Aman will not take this land grab lying down.  Community leaders indicated, on discovering the situation today on Radio Free Sarawak, that they will fight the development.  The offices of the opposition PKR leader, the human rights lawyer Baru Bian, is already handling similar land rights cases in the Sri Aman area and this one is likely to join 200 which they are now representing through the courts.   Recently decisions have been going against the Chief Minister and his Government in the wake of a key ruling in the Federal Courts that recognised the land rights of the people.

Caught red-handed and in the middle of his sneaky transaction to enrich his family, this will be a particularly difficult and embarrassing situation for the Chief Minister to attempt to argue his way out of.  But the likelihood is that he will as usual react by saying nothing at all!

        Hello Christina,

        I truly apologise regarding to my comments mentioning about "Si Anak Numpang". I seriously didn't mean or intend to hurt anybody's feelings in this website who also happen to have the same last name with Mr. Jabu eventhough I actually referring to him. I understand it can makes people confuse or affected with whoever having their last name with Mr. Jabu. Again accept my million apologise it's my mistake. Cheers..

    This kind of information should be written in common Malay language version, that is only how of our people can read. Not all of us be able to understand English.

    For instant, I would love to share all this kind of information with my people in kampung via any channel sharing this blog. These day, internet is wired to almost every house in kampung, even our 6yo children would know how to use.

    Therefore, …..

    Its good for us to open our kampung (menua – as in Iban language) eyes and mind at the same time keep them up to date with all internet information that they will never get from newspaper.

    keep up with the good work.

    • engupfred

      agreed with jerry on the circulation and translate the news.more to that…it seem strange to me that most people who make comment and post the news know very well on what's going on but no action taken, from what i read on the post, to me its more than a logic evedient to prove and yet none want to take it to court to prove that our CM is corrupted….. so my only advise who ever brave enough to do it …welllllll….don't just make a noise for it only break the silence of your peace of mind…..so….since as what are said Baru Bian is the champion…i hope he won't hesistate to brought out the case as soon as possible or much better before next election….and it will prove he is the champion…

  • TKO

    "It is established Native Customary Rights Land belonging to Ibans, according to Sadia the Iban rights group"

    Sarawak Report can at least show proof of NCR legal paper on your website about this piece of said land just like you can show the shareholder's name. Who is SADIA? Is this hearsay? or just informant sahaja? Natives always claim NCR wherever they built their longhouses anywhere they wish. But is this right? Kalau ada NCR, tak perlu cakap lah.

    There are many long houses everywhere in the land of Srwk. They can built long houses and move anywhere and anyhow they like. Is this fair? Everywhere also their land. If got NCR, they have every right to fight back if the companies encroached on their land.

    "They say at least 15 communities will be affected by the acquisition of the land for oil palm plantation, however no warning has been given to these communities and no offer of compensation has been made."

    "They say"?? If this is true a lot of people will be affected by this. If SADIA (whoever that group is) and Sarwak Report can show the legal paper of this NCR land, i am sure Baru Bian will be there to rescue but short of that, it is just smoke screen and plenty of sandiwara.

    • Christina S. Suntai

      We the Sebuyau and Balau Ibans from Sebangan have stayed put in the same area for hundreds of years.

      Yes, we filed a suit against Quality Concrete Holdings and Radiah Mahmud, the Forestry Department, State Government of Sarawak, Pengulu Merum and TR Agu. The suit was filed on Novermber 1st 2010.

      Yet on December 15th, my brother Numpang Suntai was brought before the Magistrate Court in Serian and charged with Criminal Intimidation. He will be put on trial on February 16th 2011.

      People who defended their real estate properties go to jail and put on trial and the people who robbed and took other's people prooerty remain free.

      Yet, none of the BN elected officials took a stand against something that is so very wrong and so freaking unfair!

    • Anak Iban

      TKO, Do you actually know anything at all about NCR concept? If you don't keep your big mouth shut and stop making any stupid assumption as you did. No more of your malicious comment. I am sure that you've heard about this: Wisdom have a limit, but there is no limit for stupidity!

          Your comments show how uncivilised you are. It is extremely sad to see the ignorance in you. TKO might be wrong. But his/her anger or queries could also be the same as others here.

          When you call people "passengers" – it means you dont respect unity, harmony and peace in Sarawak. You reject other race.

          Your comment not only show that you are a bigot but a racist. Are you advocating Dayak Supremacy? SHAME ON YOU!

          We are all must uniting for truth and refuse the corrupt! NO racist! No racist! this Is SARAWAK!

        Dear Anak Iban,

        You want to champion the cause for your people, i understand.Who doesnt? This is our land. Where we live. If you are attacking people like TKO, just because of him/her ignorance, do you think people like them will understand? So here in this blog, you can take your chance to exchange your opinion. Just like Christina. Learn from her. Then all anak anak ibans like you can be united to fight the corrupts and do what is right for Sarawak! our land! Our lives! Our Future!

    • Saralara

      TKO doesn't know what NCR is…He never stay in Kampung/rural area before that's why…what NCR legal paper you are saying….??

    • Anak Bumi

      TKO, I think you must be working in one of the Taibs' Colony company, maybe "Titinium"?

      I do not object the move to develop NCR land, but it should be done in an open tender way, with proper and capable company carrying out the development.

      Why the state government did not grant or sell the land to FELCRA to carry out the plantation and yet they transfer the land to a "so called" 1 ringgit company and capable company who in turn want to sell to those who really want to develop the land.

      TKO, I like to hear your opinion about this "middle man" way of deloveoping the land. Please response.

  • http://none Raja Manggeng says..

    ALL ALONG I SAID THAT LOT.1037 IS IN THE NEGOTIATION STAGE AND ALMOST CLOSED AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

    FELCRA OFFERS RM3,200 PER ACRE AND PAY FOR RM300 LAND PREMIUM.

    CHRIS CHUNG AND THE GROUP WANTS RM4,200 PER ACRE INCLUDING LAND PREMIUM. SO IMAGINE THAT RM3,200 X 22,000 ACRES

    = RM70,400,000.00.

    WOW THAT IS AN AWFUL LOT OF MONEY. WHEN THEY LOSE THE ELECTION,RUN AWAY OVERSEAS.YOU CAN RUN AWAY FROM UYS BUT NOT FROM GOD UNLESS TM AND THE FAMILY ARE NOT SCARED OF GOD.NCR LAND AND THE DAYAKS HAVE 30% STAKE.,

  • http://sarawakheadhunter.blogspot.com/ Al Tugauw (Sarawak H

    TKO, what "legal paper on NCR land" are you talking about?! NCR land does not have any document of title. That is the real smoke screen and sandiwara used by Taib, his family, cronies and henchmen to justify grabbing NCR land and turning all natives in Sarawak into squatters and trespassers on their own customary land. Do you think that is right?! In many cases the courts have decided that that is illegal, but Taib continues to ignore such decisions, knowing that not everyone affected can afford to take him or the gov't to court and believing that he can still cheat to win elections and thus get the "mandate" to continue such land grabbing. It is still WRONG!

    • Vigilante

      Hi, Al Tugauw (Sarawak Headhunter)

      I want to echo my full agreement with what you said: "That is the real smoke screen and sandiwara used by Taib, his family, cronies and henchmen to justify grabbing NCR land and turning all natives in Sarawak into squatters and trespassers on their own customary land."

      I think this thief has developed a so called hobby of taking Dayaks' NCR lands all over Sarawak in return for an unspecified “payment in kind”! which means for FREE. Then he makes Dayaks homeless.

      This thief thinks the whole of Sarawak belongs to him and there is no law that can stop him and he forgets that "the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses."

      One of these days, the Most High will punish him just as King Nebuchadnezzar

      of Babylon in the books of Daniel was punished. [Daniel 4:28-33] The King thought he was the most powerful man in the whole of Babylon,saying "Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?"

      Then the Most High struck him with madness and humbled him and he lived in the field as a beast for seven years

      "He was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds' claws."

      Titanium Management S/B was also involved in another scam when a total of 384 briges, costing RM550 millions was awarded to them Instead only 322 bridges were built, representing a shortfall of 62 bridges uncounted for and resulting in an overpayment of RM397 millions also uncounted for.

      This is really pulling wool over the eyes of all Sarawakians as public fund was illegally siphoned out.

      There is simply too much hanky panky and Mumbo Jumbo going on, too many to list them.

      As we go along, I bet more scams will be unveiled.

      • Tabitha

        lot of ‘operation’ under Swk BN is far from perfect.Handling NCR cases are not that easy especially when it comes to using land for development.There are tales of gangters (companies) fighting the locals that resulted in deaths and injuries. Of course we must avoid all these tragedies.It's a shame if negotiation and compensation did not get through.

        But setting aside all these, what are the realities for the natives? What do they want? What do they expect?

        Can commentators share their points on my thoughts below:

        Of course as rakyat, we have to support development and civilation for our natives. They cannot forever claim that all the lands above and below are theirs to roam, hunt, fish and live. Is it the case that they are allowed to roam and settle wherever they please? If they see that companies are going to build something on the area, they also barge in and want a big claim and compensation. Are the natives correct or the companies correct? There must be cases whereby both side is wrong?

        I am concerned for the future for our natives. Can the Govt always provide flying doctors so far in land to cater for medical needs? How about schools? Education?

        What do our natives see their future in Malaysia? What does ‘future’ looks like to them in terms of progression etc?

        The Nation are at the mercy of globalisation. Lands have to be developed for economic benefits to feed our Nation’s growth. There are cases of successful cooperation between natives and plantation companies – a win win situation. Of course in the cases highlighted here, there are the ‘bad companies’. How about good companies that has helped? Are they ALL bad?

        Do you think the new NCR initiatives (surveying parameters) and ensuring NCR land for Natives will solve these problem?

        Please no harsh comments here. I just want to know your thoughts or opinion about the problems on the land that i love.

        A lot of people here are fighting for the rights of Natives but i see a a lot of hatred and bashing. Shame. Constructive comments will help each other to understand.

        • Anak Bumi

          Tabitha,

          I do not oppose development to NCR land, but as I commented earlier, it must be done in an open and transparent method so that we, the "PEOPLE", the "RAKYAT" know that our land will be developed by capable people and the government can benefits from the transfer of the land.

          From what you see now, has the government in Sarawak or Malaysia achieved that? State land or NCR land were given away to "someone" with low market price, and "someone" in turn make a quick profit by selling it to another party.

          Please comment?

    • TKO

  • Saralara

    No compensation to the people but could be giving bribe to the leader of BN of the area, that's Taib style of robbing people's land.

    NOT ENOUGH BRIDGES IN SARAWAK,THEN THE 22,000 ACRES LAND AT SG TISA KNOWN AS LOT 1037. THEY STAND TO MAKE RM70,400,000 BUT WANT AN ADDITIONAL RM22,000,000 AS THEY WANT FELCRA TO INCREASE THE PRICE AT RM4,200 PER ACRE. GREEDY..JUST TOO MUCH GREED.

    CAN YOU IMAGINE ALL THE BRIDGES IN THE WHOLE OF SARAWAK WORTH ABOUT RM864 MILLION PLUS 75% COST OVER RAN, SO TOTAL MORE THAN A BILLION RINGGIT. NOT ENOUGH KAH??

    NO TM DOES NOT BRIBE BN(WAKIL SENDIRI) THERE. HE DOES NOT RESPECT OTHERS BUT WANT PEOPLE TO RESPECT HIM ALONE. THAT IS WHY THE STATE COOKED UP THE TITLE "PEHIN SRI" SPECIFICALLY FOR HIM. THERE IS NO SUCH TITLE IN SARAWAK BUT IT IS ALL COOKED UP TO PLEASE HIM.

  • Tiarama

    If i were Najib, I would arrest Taib and his family members for corruptions before the next election because by doing so, he can restore lots of integrity for the BN in Sarawak. By doing nothing, the BN in Sarawak will be heading for a downfall in the next State and Federal elections.

    • dilema

      Bro, if Najib touch Taib now he may probably lose grip to Putrajaya. You know, without Srawakian MP then Pakatan will take over Federal Gov. So Taib really use this 'Najib serba salah" situation to bulldoze Sarawak…maybe for the last one.

      • Tiarama

        That may be true just after the parlimemtary election but not now. If Najib is brave enough to do a swift and surprise arrest and put Sarawak temperary under federal control, no BN MP from Sarawak would dare to challenge the federal government. The mistake Najib did is doing nothing – meaning he approves Taib's action and is waiting Sarawak BN to lose in the next election as SUPP is going to lose big for sure.

        By taking action, he restores lot of trust from the Sarawkians. I for sure would look at him differently.

        • Anak Bumi

          The only reason is Najib and Taib = same same shame shame.

          Don't you think they look alike? Except our Taib look older. They have the same taste, one like Mongolian and one like Lebanese, haha. Dont get it wrong, I mean Najib like Mongolian Restaurant, and Taib like Lebanese food.

  • najibrazak

    How can I arrest Taib for corruption? Surely its not a criminal offence in our 1Malaysia? If it were half the Cabinet would be in jail and the other half hiding abroad. Let poor Taib provide for his family before he departs for ?. Maybe his heirs can keep up a constant supply of fire extinguishers to him. If not it is "burn baby burn."

    Oil palm plantations on NCR land are everywhere in Sarawak. One proposed oil palm plantation in Julau NCR. Does Sarawak report has information on this one? Not suprise if theif minisiter and his cronies hava share.

    My response to TKO,

    NCR land in Julau has no title (may be all, I don't know), but the proposed plantation covered water catchment. For sure no good quality water for the people,while aquatic life and wildlife will die.

  • Strategist

    Car thieves steal cars and sell them across the border at Tebedu in Pontianak

    and after that, they go into hiding for fear of getting caught by the authorities.

    Similary, house thieves are afraid of getting caught after they steal things from houses.

    But the white haired thief steals pubic funds and taxpapers' money and then steal Dayaks' lands and sell them to make millions for himself and his family and is not afraid of getting caught because he thinks he deserves them and still got the cheek to show his thick-skin face in public. He equates this kind of activity to doing business for free, namely payment in kind. No need to pay and yet still can get free rides of making millions. How interesting!

    That is the main difference between these two kinds of thieves.

    Now he seems to target all Dayaks by taking their NCR lands in Sarawak for FREE and after that, he wants to see them all die of starvation one by one from the face of this planet.

    All Dayaks must kick the rotten BN out in the next election otherwise Dayaks have no future and no hope of salvation

    anymore.

      Wow, so easy to blame Sarawakian huh? As if we are doing nothing. For your info, even if you were to vote against BN, it will not be enough. Sarawak is not a small place like your place, our hulu areas is the real hulu's, compared to west Malaysia's hulu. Logistics, transportation … how can you win against a man who controls the state, owns a lot of money, have choppers, jets and can go anywhere he chooses anytime? Even if all the votes are against BN, can you trust the people in charge of bringing the voting boxes back to the counting station? What guarantees do you have that they will not tamper with the votes, after all journey from the hulu's will take some time …

  • cabik geronong

    They have been doing this for many years.All the YB, dato and families get their riches this way. (not only in Sarawak). Not only for plantation. Developement of goverment land in urban area for example usually done in the same manner.9 out of 10 Taib will have share on it.This is why Sarawak goverment doesnt have money. The land primium paid to the govement only a small sum. The rest will go into individual pocket.A fail and just goverment will open this land for tender. All the proceed will go back to people in general. The main point is billion of personnel wealth had been generated this way by BN and Taib.Just ask ourselve how did the developer get land from the goverment? Then you will found out most of the time they did not. Usually developer bought the 'company' who get the land from the goverment.Who own this company?YB, Datu and families.

    Whatever it is, Dayaks will still continue to ensure that BN wins in the next election. There is no doubt about this.

    No one will ever be able to win the hearts of Dayaks in the kampongs and longhouses – only Taib Mahmud and BN can. This is 100% guaranteed.

    So no need to waste your time writing or translating this into BM or Iban. Even if Dayaks know about the evils of Taib Mahmud and BN politicians, the Ibans will still benefit from the evils and thus will continue to put BN in power.

      You realy made sense. Never thought about it. The issuance of NCR land titles will probably takes years.

      The survey of NCR land perimeters is just a smoke screen exercise in futility, wasting manhours and money.

      At the end of the day, the thief will keep on stealing natives' NCR lands and alienate them to himself and his siblings at "an unspecified payment in kind", meaning FREE OF CHARGE and make millions. Eventually, natives will become squatters and trespssers in their own lands they originally own.

    1.NCR Land has no Land Title but only Rights over the land

    2.With over 200 cases still pending for trial in Court and how does we justified that?

    3.I suggest you read Tr Nor ak Nyawai Case Judgement in 2001

    Ps:I leave the rest for you guys to educate this Poor Silly Fella with the name of TKO

      Community leaders / Ketua Masyarakat play an important role who has jurisdiction in certifying NCR for the claimant. Pun ada kes-kes false certification juga.Kadang kadang, orang cina pun mau claim NCR. Neh dapat?

      I've known about Rumah Chang in Niah, also a hotly disputed case becos of plantation company that wants develop the land. Subsequently it was proven that Rh Chang was issued a permit of Swk Land Code under Section 10. So, they have the NCR.

      I think legal paper could mean permit/individual titles for NCR.

      correct me if im wrong. Seems that you are so smart to the point of calling people 'fool' and 'silly'.

    The Pek Mou had painted an ugly picture about his faith because of his heinous crime. If his intemtion of going to Mecca in November was to cleanse his sins, this would only encourage him to commit more sins in Sarawak and make more returns to the holy city again. Afterall, there is no limit as to the number of time a muslim could visit Mecca.As a muslim chief minister, he should set a good example in upholding the religion and governing the state.Now, his way of life has made his faith looks very bad to the eyes of non-believers.Shame on you for calling yourself a muslim.Your visit to Mecca, if it makes any sense at all, is merely to pollute every inch of the soil you have stepped on!

  • http://www.landsurvey.sarawak.gov.my Lands & Surveys

    (1). The Sarawak Land Code (Chap. 81) 1958 did not exactly define what is Native Customary Rights (NCR). However, by virtue of Section 2 of Sarawak Land Code (Chap. 81)"Customary Law" means a custom or body of customs to which the law of Sarawak gives effect". Do you know what does it mean? It mean, the Native Customary Right cannot established by itself. There must be a law or statute to enforce and recognize it. And by which law or statute would recognize it? Definitely not the prior of Rajah Brookes' time. One have to understand that before the coming of Rajah Brooke, every single land, resorurces, woods, gold, etc, all are belong to Brunei Sultanate. None is belong to the local native. Only after the coming of Rajah Brooke, then he created the concept of "Native Customary Law" as can be dictate in his journal published sometime in 1840s. How do i know about this? Well, do your homework. Go to State Library or Museum and you will find the documents or at lest the extract. Now, what I want to emphasize here is that, no NCR before 1840s. NCR can only be created upon recognition by Rajah Brooke.

    (2). By virtue of Section 5 of Sarawak Land Code (Chap. 81), NCR can only be created by ways of:

    2.1. felling of virgin jungle and continuous occupation of land being cleared,

    2.2. planting with fruit trees,

    2.3. used for burial ground or shrine,

    2.4. rights of ways, and

    2.5. any lawful method.

    See, even Section 2 also indicate that NCR cannot be simply be created, not even by hearsay. It must be documented. Nobody can simply declare this or that as their NCR land. Except if you are Barbarian. Using your Badang Force or Power Rangers Superpower, then you can say any land is your NCR.

    (3). Now, let see what is the power of Minister for the time being responsible for land. Section 13 of Sarawak Land Code (Chapter 81) 1958 Edition dictate that …Subject to the direction of the Minister, the Director may alienate State Land …. which means that the Minister may order any State Land to be given to any parties as he deem fit as his capacity of the Minister. No competence court of law could challenge this. Onus of burden to prove the land is NCR Land is totally by the applicant as spelled out in Section 18 of Sarawak Land Code. If you fail to proof the land as NCR, then it is State Land. By virtue of Section 2, "State Land" means all land for which no document of title has been issued … and by virtue of Section 12 of Sarawak Land Code (Chap. 81)… "The entire property in and control of state land and of all rivers, streams, canals, creeks and water courses and the bed thereof is and shall be vested solely in the Government". This mean that whoever in control of government, they are controlling the ownership of the land.

    (4). It is considered "Ill-conceive" to state that ownership of land by way of claiming as NCR land as a concrete justification or evidence to demand alienation of the said land to any body or any native. This land is not belong to any native. It is belong to the state as a whole. We are not inherit the land but rather heiring it to our future generation.

    (05). I believe that the reporter(s) of Sarawak Report should be very clear on how to publish story about NCR Land. Otherwise, it is only a hear say without carry any merit and merely can be read as weak propaganda programme.

    Sincere,

      Lands and Surveys staff may have clearied and explained the legal defination of NCR, Taib Mahmud has nevertheless, abused his power by giving those lands to his family and then sold them to make a quick profit. However, I do believe that those natives who can prove that they have been living there for decades is entiltled to be the first line of receipients for the titles. Also regardless of what it is, all natives who live there should be given a piece of land for their survival.

Whether it is being used by other or never being used by other, as a civil servant, it is my duty to carry out any instruction given to me by the government of the day. Even if someday PKR or DAP or even Bebas as the government of the day, we as a civil servant has to obey and carry out the task given to us. You can only say no if you are no longer a member of civil servant.

          My response to Land & Survey Staff,

          I give you this example:

          If a legal timber company ENCROAH kampung galau/pemakai menua (where the land is within the license area), who is right and who is wrong? Can you answer this? Not too lengthy because I want to hear your principle.

          Land & Survey and Sarawak Forest Department cannot do anything right? But, have you all asked yourselves how the license was given to the timber towkey? Any consultation with the native communities before the license was given? No right? Any communication between L&S and SFD prior to the approval of the license? No right? So, for many years the conflict between logging and native communities was mainly due to the INSINCERITY OF THE BN GOVERNMENT. IF BN EVEN CANNOT MAKE THE PROPER ROAD AND PROVIDE WATER PIPE FOR THE RURAL COMMUNITIES, DON’T TAKE THEIR LAND/FORESTS AND DON’T POLLUTE THEIR WATER. ANY TIMBER LICENSE MUST BE ISSUED UPON AGREEABLE BY ALL “KETUAI BILIK”.

          What your director and SFD's director are doing all the while? TIDAK BUKA MATA DAN TIDAK KOREK TELINGA, FIKIRKAN DIRI SAJA? Send the directors to Ulu Baram/Ulu Rajang if PR win the coming election.

          @remaongyida,

          Thanks for the reply.

          My response to your enquiry are as follows:

          Q: My response to Land & Survey Staff,

          I give you this example:

          If a legal timber company ENCROAH kampung galau/pemakai menua (where the land is within the license area), who is right and who is wrong?

          Answer: By virtue of Sarawak Land Code which the statute govern the land administration is Sarawak since before Malaysia day, "Pemakai Menoa" and "Pulau Galau" is not within definition of Section 5 of the land code. However, on recent court case held in Bintulu (Nor Anak Nyawai and onor vs Supt. Lands & Surveys Bintulu), the "Pemakai Menoa" has been discussed in detail in the said court case. In principle, as long as the Native can proof that the said "Pemakai Menoa" is within the criteria and definition of Section 5 of the Land Code, then, the claimant may have locus standi against the state government. However, based on cases that I know since 23 years in service, poor native unable to proof their occupation and cultivation and therefore the claim seems to be baseless under the law is concerned.

          On "Pulau Galau", it has been cleared in

          the said case supported by Sagong Tasi & ANor Vs Kerajaan Negeri Johor, if you are not in control of the said land, no Native Customary Claim may stand. In laymen term, "Pulau Galau" is not recognize as NCR under the law.

          In the event that Provisional Lease has been issued to certain area, it does not mean that any single square foot belong to the company nor the kampung folks. Only by virtue of Perimeter Survey carried out under Section 28 of the Land Code and replacement of Provisional Lease to Land Code title under the same section, then we know who encroach who. However, even though, say, during the Perimeter Survey carried out and there are claims made over certain piece of land subject to NCR, the said claimant is responsible to proof the existence of his/her NCR. In the event that he/she failed to proof, then by virtue of Section 18(1) of the land code, the claim maybe dismissed or "ill-conceived".

          Q: Can you answer this? Not too lengthy because I want to hear your principle.

          Land & Survey and Sarawak Forest Department cannot do anything right? But, have you all asked yourselves how the license was given to the timber towkey? Any consultation with the native communities before the license was given? No right? Any communication between L&S and SFD prior to the approval of the license? No right? So, for many years the conflict between logging and native communities was mainly due to the INSINCERITY OF THE BN GOVERNMENT.

          Answer: By virtue of Sarawak Land Code and Forest Ordinance, it is prerogative power of the minister who responsible of land to exercise his power to alienate any piece of state land to any body, corporation or statutory body. However, based on my experience, the minister will only decide to issue permit for Forest Extraction / Concession or Provisional Lease upon advise from the Director of Forest (DF) and Director of Lands and Surveys (DLS). It not that simple for DF and DLS to come up the the advise without prior checking the land status as well as forest status since both of them are civil servant and carries bunches of laws on their head which if in the event the advise is wrong, both of them may responsible for the misleading and they may stand before the court to receive the penalties. If found guilty, the will lose their post, their salary as well as their pension. I dont think they will stupid enough to mislead our government.

          Q: IF BN EVEN CANNOT MAKE THE PROPER ROAD AND PROVIDE WATER PIPE FOR THE RURAL COMMUNITIES, DON’T TAKE THEIR LAND/FORESTS AND DON’T POLLUTE THEIR WATER. ANY TIMBER LICENSE MUST BE ISSUED UPON AGREEABLE BY ALL “KETUAI BILIK”.

          What your director and SFD’s director are doing all the while? TIDAK BUKA MATA DAN TIDAK KOREK TELINGA, FIKIRKAN DIRI SAJA? Send the directors to Ulu Baram/Ulu Rajang if PR win the coming election.

          Answer: This is merely political point of view and i am not able to answer from political point of view. However, i wonder whether the Kerajaan PAS Kelantan, Kerajaan PKR Selangor and Kerajaan DAP Penang did ask the permission from "Ketua Kampung" before they enter the land. I wonder whether the Government of United State of America or the Government of People Republic of Russia did ever ask the local headmen before the said governments acquired land? Hmmm… If you can proof that the other government have to be consented by the local before they can enter land, well, you are superhero, man. Thumbs up to you for giving the example and all of us can say that the current government has "ill-practised".

    • Freddy Francis

      That because you only have two piece of land ONLY;

      How could the Brunei Sultanate established her claims over this section of the Borneo Island? The Dayak is one of the origins, the indigenous groups that roamed over the island to establish their farmland long before the era of the Sultanate and the Rajahs. The shifting cultivations which evolved a cycle of several years thus this led them to assorted crop plantings in order to demarcate their former clearings or planting ground. Whereas these small group of the so-called Bruneians they could be of the sea-pirates who flocked from the Sulu. Apparently they have no permanent landing grounds except the sea. However their chief could have nestled along the coast of the so-called Sarawak as their temporary shelters after their uncertain futile loots. When the White Rajah made a sudden landing in this our part of Borneo Island these sea pirates foresaw they were under threats. The British could easily wiped them off BUT apparently the Rajahs must have come to explore new foreign land instead of capturing. Hence sensing a great fear in a total loss to their also newly and unfully founded landing grounds these so called the Bruneians bargained with the British. Here we saw the beginning of the new era. The romanized writings of the SARA-AWAK were definitely commissioned by the Rajahs. When the Rajahs began their establishment their strong foothold onto this Sarawak the various administrative rules and laws set in. During the Rajah rules majority the natives of Sarawak were unaware of what was happening over their homeland. The Rajahs got to make a bench mark in order to make a headstart. Thus this Lands & Surveys Staff also need to access deeper into the pre and post traditions and customs of our borneo aborgines when in adjudicating our Native land issues. Let not the Pehin White interpreted you his way. Yes very true all the land in Sarawak belong to the State BUT the alarming trend now is the conversion of vast tracts of Stateland into the ownerships of such political groups and cronies and the elites can turn our indigeneous groups a hallmark refuge. Where is our Homeland?

        Dudue,

        I dont want to argue literally but it is appeared to me that you have lost your History Bible.

        Dayak (whether Iban/Bidayuh/Orang Ulu) was never been in control of the state during Brunei Occupation. All of us be it Dayak, Malay, Melanau, Lunbawang are all serviant to Kesultanan Brunei and no NCR recognize during that era.

        And for your information, before the coming of James Brooke into Kuching on 15.08.1839, Sarawak is only confine to Kuching area where it is headed by the brother of Sultan Brunei at that time whereby the rest of so called Sarawak today (Simanggang, Saribas, Binatang and up to Baram) are all within Brunei Empire and none belong to any Dayaks nor Malays nor Melanau.

        Some say that even the word "Dayak" itself was come from James Brooke in his historial diary which you can find the extract in old museum Sarawak. Please sometime pay a visit to Museum Sarawak.

        The term "Iban" is considered old term referring to Sea Dayak prior to James Brooke expedition. The term "Iban" was originated from "Orang-orang Ibnu Zaiban" an Arab trader who used to doing trading in Brunei and "Sarawak". These "Orang-orang Ibnu Zaiban" then resettle their domicile near the Malay/Melanau village where they used to call these Malay/Melanau as "Orang Laut", since both of them residing near river or water shrine (offshore/laut). And that is why you can hear some Iban dialect having similarity with Malay/Melanau dialect.

        Orang-orang Laut (Malay/Melanau) used to call Sea Dayak as "Orang Ibnu Zaiban" and as the time goes by, the term evolve to "Orang Zaiban" before gradually re-termed to "Orang Iban".

        Now, who can claim that their races is genuinely from "Sarawak"? Well, to find out, you have to do extra homework and get close with Museum and Pustaka.

    I hope in the coming State election in Sarawak, all Dayaks will join forces with Pakatan Rakyat to 'Tumbangkan' this old 'white hair man' out from power. Let the power be given back to the Dayaks.

  • Saralara

    MY SUGGESTION : INDEPENDENT SARAWAK'S OWN TV STATION AND NEWSPAPERS SHOULD BE REFORM AND BUILT MAINLY TO SPREAD AND TELL THE CRUCIAL AND TRUE NEWS TO THE PEOPLE OF SARAWAK….WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK? TV1/TV2/TV3 CANNOT BE TRUST.

  • http://none Crying without tears

    HAI SARALARA,WE CANNOT HAVE OUR OWN INDEPENDENT TV STATION AND NEWSPAPER AS THESE ARE ALL CONTROLLED BY THE CROCODILES AND POLITICIANS WHO PRACTISE POLITICS OF DECEIT,VENGEANCE,CRONYISM,JEALOUSY,GREED AND VIOLENCE. OUR COUNTRY'S POLITICAL SITUATION IS CHILD LIKE PLAY.

    • Saralara

      WHY ALWAYS SAY CANNOT??? THAT'S ONLY BLOCK OUR MIND…THAT IS WHY WE SARAWAKIAN MUST CHANGE!! CHANGE TO DO THINGS WHAT WE NEVER HAVE….VOTE FOR PAKATAN THIS TIME…LEAVE THE CROCODILESSSS…IT'LL ONLY WAITING TO EAT YOU…

      • http://none Crying without tears

        Hai Saralara,the licences are being given and controlled by the Federal Government.Even if they give us and see that we do not support them,they will NOT renew the licence. Do you know that? Our country's politic is NOT democracy but AUTOCRACY.Can you issue the licences and I will apply to get one.NOW even we apply,we will never get them,all for their CRONIES.This is what Malaysian DEMOCRACY about and do you call this democracy.No it is CRAZYCRACY my dear

    I am so tired of listening all of these scandals done by CM and the geng, it seemed that sarawakians are in favour of him due to the fact that in every election state BN win majority votes.

    As an observer, i would say that old generation are still voting for him at least 85%m, the more younger generation i presumed voting for him 60% and the younger generation i suppposed only 15%.

    The first two generations had been successfully votes for BN all the while which also made the CM to retain his seat. And the problem with the younger generation is they are far away from registering themselves to vote therefore had make less significant in influencing total election results.

    This is different if we look into city/town area of which had gradually fall under opposition. This is because with all infrastructures established they are looking for good governance and so forth and the BN strategies such as "giving sweets" or "instant noodle" project are impracticable.

    For rural area, my conclusion is that until the first generation "disappear".. they will be no significant changes in Sarawak politic. Secondly, as long as the youngest generation are not keen to involved in politic by not register their name to vote, it will delaying the process of taking over political power from BN.

    BN only able to retain power through the rural "Senior Citizen" by having at least 85% voters and also with the help of at least 60% voters from the "Middle Age Citizen" as this two generations are generally so complacent and quite "well-off" due to the facts that they were grooming in BN hemisphere and getting boring and unproductive but quite a good pay government jobs as well as being pampered by the BN gov with a few ringgit for voting allowances, rural project of which were not because the government is caring but it's a government obligation to the rakyat. Please bear in mind that these generations are not "IT savvy" generation and are much rely on government controlled mass media.

    Once again, to conclude, these two generations will come to end at least for another 15 years before the current new generation will take over. By that time we will see the politic scenario will change dramatically.

    My reply to Land & Survey staff

    You are absolutely right regarding the land code. Being a Land & survey staff you have to know. to the others you all missed the points.The point is that if I being a Dayak which I have done, apply 50 acres of vacant land for planting of oil palm my application will never approve but if BN leaders apply thousands of hectares of plantation land to sell to the chinese tycoons before the application reach the land & survey it already approved.The boss of Shin Yang told me personally the group had 1,000,000 ha of land in Sarawak. instead of giving 1,000,000 ha to a family but give 50 ha to each family with titles you can make 20,000 millionaires. The responsibility of the Minister of Planing and Resource to ensure that living standard of the general population is raised up not to enrich the Bn leaders and their family members and cronies only. THAT IS WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DAY. Land is economic assets for us to earn income and it is a natural resources and must be shared.The minister abused his power that is wrong with the leaders of the day.For you being staff of land & Survey your boss makan banyak so you feel there is nothing wrong for you to makan a bit the problem will be how sure are you that your children or grand children will be working in the land & survey? the best is that we all co-operate to stop the injustice before our children have nothing.

  • Anak Cina

    Majority Chinese has rejected Taib, thats why he asked in Sibu " What else do the Chinese want ?????"

    My answer as a chinese to him, "GET THE FUCK AND YOUR BUTT OUT OF SARAWAK. THATS WHAT I WANT."

  • Stanley Teoh

    It is your OWN people that is robbing the natives. Of course the beneficiary/ies will be Taib's family ! Sarawakians should FIRST get rid of their own 'so-called' leaders' and elect more UPRIGHT leaders from their own NATIVE community – including for the post of CHIEF MINISTER – and ALL other State government posts.Masing is no good.Idris Jala is no good. Dayaks and Ibans, please influence your people to get a proper education.THOSE DAYS OF ROAMING IN YOUR FORREST IS OVER-A LONG TIME AGO.

    WAKE UP !

    THERE'S A 'THIEF'MINISTER ABOUT !and he is stealing everything from you !!

  • http://nil chiban

    I certainly agree 100% with Stanley. It the Dayaks that is allowing TAib to grab your land. So dont blame anyone but yourselves and your relatives, uncles, aunties, aki, ini, your father, mother and brothers and sisters. Blame them, no use showing your frustration here cos it can do no good.
