Jabu Family Cash In On Native Lands

Jabu Family Cash In On Native Lands

10 Jan 2011

This post is also available in: Iban, Malay

Barbara Dubah Jabu, a wealthy match for her new husband with so much land taken from Iban NCR lands and handed to her by the state

News is circulating in the Betong area that Deputy Chief Minster’s family has just cashed in on Native Lands handed to them by the State of Sarawak (thanks to his political ally the Chief Minister, who is also the Planning and Resources Minister and Chairman of the Land Custody and Development Authority). 

They are believed to have made a sale to FELCRA for RM 7 million.  Not bad for lands that have been extracted from their rightful owners for a pittance!

Sarawak Report wonders if either FELCRA, which as a public federal body should publish all such purchases and deals (especially if the families of government Ministers are profiting from them) or indeed Jabu himself would confirm which of his many land acquisitions have been sold on in this way?

Or perhaps the lawyer handling the deal, Ani Solep,  Advocate and Solicitor, would be so good as to make public the details of such a sale of once public lands to a public body?

Over shadowed by the Star Attraction? - Taib brings his own bride now revealed to be named Puan Sri Ragad Waleed Alkurdi

Taib’s chief Iban land-grab crony

It is, of course, well-known that it is not just the Chief Minister and his family who have been grabbing native customary lands for themselves.  His Deputy, Jabu, is famous for having hugely profited also from land hand-outs in return for his total political loyalty. 

Jabu has acquired enormous tracts of land for himself and his family during his lucrative years as Deputy to Taib Mahmud.  Given his modest official salary and poor family background,  it is inconceivable that he could have managed to raise the sums needed to buy these areas (now worth many millions of ringgit) if he had paid the market price.

 However, as Taib’s political secretary Karim Hamza so recently explained, BN regard it as a perk of political office to take advantage of the “business opportunities” of land that might be offered to you “at a very cheap price”.  The rest of the world regards this as corruption.

Enough to cover the wedding!

Jabu’s daughter Barbara, of course, got married this very weekend in great splendour.  The Chief Minister and his own surprise  new young wife attended the ceremony.  Our exclusive photographs show that the bride and groom decked themslves out in full traditional Iban costumes to celebrate their union, but the real Iban population of their home areas and longhouses will be wondering how much of all this lavish entertainment was paid for at their expense? 

How much of Jabu’s unexplained wealth has been gained from exploiting their own Iban people by receiving

Top table - nothing but the best for the Jabu wedding

lands taken by the state and then sold to him and his family at a very cheap price? 

Herba Aromatics – owned by Jabu children

For example, was the land sold to Felcra for RM7 million the approximately 2,000 hectare plot that was recently handed by Taib to a company called Herba Aromatics?   The owners of Herba Aromatics are none other than Gerald Rentap Jabu, the Deputy Chief Minister’s own son and his daughter, the newly wedded Barbara!  A close family crony and cousin, Robert Lawson Chuat also enjoys some shares.  

This land was ‘purchased’ from the state in 2008 for an agreed price of just over RM 1 million and is located in Lidong Road area, Betong.  This is all Native Customary Rights Land belonging to Jabu’s own Iban people and it is of course worth a great deal more than this.  In fact the land registry admits that the area is currently used for integrated farming purposes, proving that it belongs to the natives and not to the state – far less to Mr Jabu’s, who has now acquired it for such a low price.

All for the kids? - Jabu's kids are named as the owners, but his influence got them the land! As of this year they still had not paid the State for the acquisition.

How much did the real owners receive?

Crony politics - Jabu has received a wealth of lands from his boss. The lands were taken from the people of Sarawak.

We therefore wish to enquire how much Jabu’s children paid the natives, whose land they alienated?  Many natives are angered in Betong that Jabu has acquired large tracts of  Iban land in the area by paying the owners a laughable RM500 a door.  Less than a month’s wage in Kuching for their entire lifelong inheritance! 

Often this RM 500 a door compensation has in fact been paid to Headmen on behalf of members of their longhouses.  Often these families did not even know that their land was being traded in this way and did not even receive the money!  Such practices are of course illegal and some families are now seeking legal advice to proceed against their exploiters.

Just as outrageously, we can inform you that even the minimal sum which Jabu’s children were supposed to be paying the state for this area of valuable land ( taken from its rightful Iban owners), had yet to be paid earlier this year – a full two years after they had kindly received it from the Chief Minister! 

Don't worry Mr Jabu, feel free to pay later. The State of Sarawak would not want you out of pocket before you have sold it on for a massive profit!

Did the Chief Minister perhaps tell Jabu’s children that they didn’t need to find the money to pay the State of Sarawak until after they had sold it on to somebody else at a much higher market price?  Would that sale perhaps have been to FELCRA for RM7 million?

Sarawak Report demands that the Land Registry make clear whether Jabu’s children have yet paid all the money owing for this land and if so when?

Easy profits for Government Ministers of Sarawak at the expense of poor native communities

Such a profit would certainly have paid for Barbara’s wedding and set her and her new husband up very nicely for the start of their married life (although it represents but a small fraction of the family fortune).  They have done so much better than those rightful owners, who were given RM 500 a door (if they got it), haven’t they? 

So, this is progress and development BN-style!  It means enormous wealth for Government

Haven't they done well thanks to Daddy Jabu?

Ministers, who are supposed to serve the people, while the poor lose their lands and livelihoods to make them rich.

Of course it is up to the people of Sarawak whether they continue to allow themselves to be robbed in this way or demand their lands back, which is what the opposition parties promise to do!

    Hello Fellow Dayaks in Betong area. Your SULTAN has played you all out and all land

    issue must go through Jabu himself.

    Do you still want your SULTAN to rule you?Please decide and think carefully.Jabu is advisor to SALCRA but why sell the land to FELCRA??So now do you believe in Jabu asking you to develop your land through SALCRA??If the advisor has decided to go to FELCRA for land developement,that's mean SALCRA is no good at all.Poorly managed,am I right??

    • miaowkia

      Jabu are you hinting us you have no considerations towards the poor. Have you not got enough? And now you are progressing to wallop the fund that meant for uplifting the poor small players. Guess who is 1st Class thief then?

  • Vigilante

    Taib, Jabu and the rest of their cronies are birds of the same feather that flock together.

    No wonder many unscrupulous people want to jump on the bandwagon of entering politics to get rich quick by grabbing NCR lands at an "unspecified payment in kind" [using the white haired thief's term for no payment or FOC as is his usual modus operandi] and then sell such lands to "China man" crony companies for millions. Free lands that belong to natives,your very own people to make easy money to become instant millionaires overnight as in the case of Herba Aromatics Sdn Bhd., Jabu's siblings are named as the owners. As of this year they still had not paid the State for the acquisition which they sold to Felcra for RM7 million the approximately 2,000 hectare plot that belong to your own people.

    No wonder Taib’s political secretary Karim Hamza so recently explained, BN regard it as a perk of political office to take advantage of the “business

    opportunities” of land that might be offered to you “at a very cheap price”. The rest of the world regards this as corruption.

    Any right thinking politician of principle, moral, integrity,& dignity would not do this for the conscience of guilt will come to haunt you for the rest of your life and the long arm of the law will come after you after the party you are associated with is defeated.

  • Tuan James Brooke

    Jabu is the best example of incompetent leader in sarawak history. He only best in releasing fry fish to the river, he is an expert!. jabu also expert in repeated ordinary speech since 1980's. now he only knows "score" and "anang ngelaban perintah".. to tell the truth, he doesnt even knows what score is all about. The greatest failure were, he failed to seek justice for its fellow ibans. He fail to ensure iban/dayak to erect their own building. Some dayak professionals were put on presure by this old guy. Ask an 18 years old to debate with him on nasional issues, i bet he tremble to answer an issue raised. Why on earth, dayaks still want this fellow to be their leader..?

      Hi Tuan James Brooke

      The why question requires an answer. And the answer is that Iban/Dayaks people do not know any better. They never knew a leader with integrity. Their minds are blurred and consumed by leaders of present and past.

      • Layarian

        Blame it on the media that feed all those folks "sweet material" about them. But I'm really sure that the new generation knows better.

        • Future Leader

          I agree with u…

  • Saralara

    Jabu and Taib act the same way.Steal and sell people lands!!Who gonna trust them anymore…

  • Strategist

    When Pakatan Rakyak forms the next government, Taib, Jabu, George Chan and the rest of the cronies should be paraded in court to face charges of corruption in front of national TV camera, national and international newspapers reporters and journalists to show the world of their crimes they committed on their country fellow men. Upon conviction, one by one should be thrown into jail for the remaining part of their natural lives.

    After all this is done, all of Taib's overseas ill gotten landed properties must be restituted to the people of Sarawak. His overseas properties are only the tip of an iceberg. There are still billions that he has hidden somewhere. Every effort must be made to trace and recover them.

    This fellow is really a first class master thief that can make it to the world's guiness book of thieves. No doubt about him.

      Those are the beneficiaries of their father/father-in law's act that they do enjoy.There is nothing wrong,why are you asking? Are you a party to Jabu himself?

      This act of treason must stop ,selling the NCR land to Federal agency,reaping hefty profits,milking the poor,so that he can held them by the necks and will follow what the SULTAN of Betong tells them to do.

      If the natives are rich,they will go against the SULTAN. Too bad and sad such slavery situation prevails in Sarawak.

      • san tet

        Dear January (Hope tht you are an Iban or Sarawak Native's)… I would like to ask you one question. If you were given 10,000 hacter of land.. what would you do with it? sell it at a cheapest price to a TOWKAY?

        • Tru

          Dear San Tet

          you shoulnt be so defensive.What makes you think those who cares for the plight of Sarawak Natives have to be Iban and Sarawak Natives? What makes you think Malays and Chinese dont fight or care for their own country men? It is unfair to assume just because lands are sold cheaply to towkays or chinese companies and that other races in Sarawak dont care about the Natives.This is not a blog for ibans only you know. Even the west Malaysians are reading it. The only thing they might concur from all these comments could be that the races in Sarawak are not even united.

          Crying Without Tears,

          I ask this because the main person we are displeased about is Jabu. Perhaps it is fair that we dont drag his families into the fray. Perhaps they dont know the FULL extend of their father's wrong doing. It's pointless to ask whether i am a party to Jabu or not. I am here as a concerned Sarawakian, voicing my fight for the rights of Sarawakians – regardless whether you are iban or not.

          Unless full evidence that his children are actively involved in indiscriminate land grabbing at the expense of the poor.

          If we need to fight against the culprit, play it straight and fair – that's my point.

          If people hate you, but smear your children's name, you would also agree that's not a fair game.

        • 3rdClassCitizenofDayakOrigin

          You have a point there but if you are suggesting that these children of Jabu and their likes might be clueless/ignorant of their parent’s activities or more to the point… how they accumulated their wealth, then that is simply illogical. These are rich folks we are talking about and they most definitely would have access to a lot of information via family members, friends or internet.

        • ngrichau

          All of Jabu's kids DO have/hold 'suspicious' shares (yes, big shares) in 'suspicious' companies. One of them is managing Betong Premix, a company under Taib's CMS Roads. No other people capable to run the company? The Petronas petrol station at Layar junction is Jabu's, and managed by his nephew. Must be Jabu's family members? Other people not capable? Jabu's ministerial salary must be lucrative as he can set up a petrol station like that. It's franchising from Petronas.

      • Strategist

        Yes, what you said is right. The law of corruption says the one who gives bribes is also as guilty as the ricipient. Similary, the one who steals is also as guilty as the one who buys stolen goods.

        Similarly, Taib's and Jabu's siblings are as guilty as their fathers who alienated shares illegally to them. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

        That's why Violet Yong [herself a lawyer] of DAP questioned George Chan [ignorant of the law] in DUN how his daughter got shares of state land in BDC transfered to her worth more than RM70 Millions. In reply, George said it was a personal matter and none of her business. It is very much Violet's and every Sarawakian's business because state land was transfered illegally to his daughter.

        Therefore, George and his daughter, Taib and Jabu and their siblings will have the door of prison shut behind them when the time comes.

        • remaongnyida


          If Taib's or Jabu's children don't know the story of their business, they should clarify it AND NOT YOU.

          The fight to reclaim our rights is never going to be as simple. Disseminating all these news on the alleged abuse of power/positions by the people in power helps but only to a certain extent. It is up to the more educated people to help and to reach out to the less educated and especially to the younger generations and educate them on their rights and to raise awareness among the people on the practice of good governance. This will take years. As such, don’t give up or stop trying!

Inferiority in education and economy… these are the 2 things that I can think of at the moment but these 2 are not the only factors. I mean… how do you expect a ill-equipped soldier to go to war and survive?? So to speak…

    If someone can be in power for 40 yrs long, that means there is great evil forces behind. Usin, Ah Seng and Abu, do u all believe?

    We are Malaysian and Malaysian must not act like terrorist. Let us pray to our God to break the evil bondage on the land of hornbill. Foochow, remember who u are. Remember ur ancestor and the Almighty.

    Come, Usin, Ah Seng and Abu, we all believe in God. Let pray for the land that we reside in.


      jerico..u know why Yheweh asked d isrealite to capture jericho…b.cos of the evil inside the city..now tell me how u destroy a system wic failed..like our democracy…u hav to overthrow d system..people in sarawak are not happy wit wat they aledgelly said jabu did on NCR land issue…now jabu is a smart dayak/iban strategist…if not he be like ningkan or tawi..he knows he cannot fight taib or he be like tajem they don stay in power for so long..but tell me??????if jabu is not there..another dayak will still be there..same scenario…u remember masing s cry on ncr..wer is he now???/now we are in a new era..dayaks are not stupid..they are playing a waiting game even those in B.N..TAIB KNOWS THIS..u go every wer in d world wen people don agree over wat the goverment is doing they protest(not necessary violent just peaceful marches like martin luther king j.r in U.S..wen he said i hav a dream speach…now baru bian is a fighter 4 NCR…he is running for c.m.he is d only person daring to stand on this issue n never change since his PBDS days wen even masing gave up.we hav catherine suntai…a brave lady..usung he real name to describe n hightlight issues not for geting our dayak golden voice in london wit radio free sarawak…met his brother anyai..in k.l..anyai said..i quote..our bro wil be cekup if he pulai benua…but these are guts speaking..truth and justice…kita cakap sikit semua ketuk..u see everyone hantam me in SR..i don think i speak incorrectly as our system failed…our democracy don work…ther s abuse of power…and the people suffer..they jus wan their rights n developments in d kampongs/rurals area.u see how many of our young boys/girls are in town..i was in miri n i saw many works in supermarket til 10pm,makan gaji rm600 n kongsi bilik..n d girls..don u think wit low education sum wil turn to vice but they are smarts..imagine u giv them gud education..how is thier potential…there must be a protest dat land taken shud be paid properly…lets divide the quantum of land based on sarawak population.if u take the land u have to set a foundation for education for the people of dat area from primary until university.my dad always tell me dat no matter wat education is ur strong foundation..even wen all fail,n u get thrown to d smellist n dirty lonkang u still survive.n yes he is right,i survive solely on my education to earn well.but how bout tis people evicted of their land,no education how…they mus protest and ask for their rights.election is near but taib is still going to be C.M…LIKE I SAID HE IS TOO POWERFUL COS HE HAV ALL THE CASH N CASH IS KING…JABU IS STILL GOING TO BE THERE..but they can protest n go to the street..they are asking for their rights..wic is taken from them..they don ask for sumthing wic is not theirs..salah kah…u tell me…even if i hav a good job in the govtmt…wic i don i stil wil say sumthing n protest…it mus not be politically motivated but rather those who are affected to come an protest…get it on vedio n youtube..d whole matter…sent it to aljazeera,cnn,cbn,bbc,nbc etc we are not anti givernment but we must protect the rights of the poor n marginalised namely d dayaks…but we are happy people..we talk n slag others n gossip…we never really focus on human rights…dayak rights…its not religions sum malays are also marginalised..if u go to all the states in peninsula u see d poor are the malays not the indians or cina..are we lazy overall…no..we work hard as farmers b4..our ancestors,,we also work hard now..who work in d supermarkets,coffeshops or cina enterprise all dayaks..and they are gud workers.so the issue is jabu got so much for d sales of dayak land n he is not sharing it wit d rest of d dayak…the dayak don ask…u ask me how. they don ask…any petitions,courts actions…o.k we hav but seems not to work or very slow.bring these people affected to sleep outside his house,chain n locked themselve to the gate n ask for the payment from the proceed,or a foundation set up for this particular groups or areas.now,the japanese are doing tis..so is d europeans..or d americans…its the dayaks land…n their rights..u don get ur share cos u don ask n go all out..u see how d pemuda UMNO do it at the US embassies/THEY PROTEST OVER PALASTINIANS ISSUES NOTHING ABOUT THEM BEING MALAYS…SALAH KAH IF D DAYAK PROTEST OVER THEIR LAND TAKEN AND SOLD N NOTHING GIVEN TO THEM, are we really ignorant on how to do it…jus open d world news…so don talk n talk bout jabu anak tis n dat,the issue is we don ask for our share(if people don bayar hutang n u got no mony,wat u do.look for him and get ur mony bck.same here)..we don do it. so if not jus go to drink sepuluh 3tin.. ginikin or tiger beer…or chap apek…u don fight for ur right u don get anything…even u see…nama pun takut to put cos ISA OR KENA TANGKAP POLIS…as long as we speak the truth n about our rights…why takut…i m not anti anyone…if jabu is right gud..but if lands are taken n dayaks are thrown in d street then speak in d street,from d street.how do we do it…open our eyes..N look. people in SR SAY I TALK ONLY..I PUT MY NAME DOWN N NOT HIDE FOR FEAR OF REPURCUSSION,I M NOT TRYING TO BE A HERO…i hav a right to speak why salah kah,IF WE HAV A RIGHT STAND FOR IT…d system fail..i pun DON hate Taib N JABU..or anak2 MEREKA.we are all human.if rentap don drink chap apek wit me..i don care…but the rights of the dayaks is for them to speak out n do sumthing.not marah sini marah sana…i m also upset n angry wit d system..why u think i stay away from politics for 5yrs now…i kesian see the P.B.B Y.Bs.their hands are tight(LIVING IN FEAR)…if u go against d system it will not work for u n the whole dayaks will suffer…i find that wat i hav learn from my university days are not applicable any longer in life but d basis of politics..i.e VOICES OF THE PEOPLE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS IN SARAWAK RINGING IN MY EARS.who will fight for them my fellow sarawakians,my dayaks brothers..yes i may disagree n get upset but i m human,a dayak,a SARAWAKIAN n seeing the pain of my people u think i m not in pain also…u think i don cry for them my people…d potential doctor is a waiter in kedai kopi…d nurse is a waitrees in the pubs/later become prostitute…my people are becoming slaves in their own land..do we blame taib n jabu alone or goerge chan…or masing…they are not only to be blame but us also…we kip quite n mind our own business n see our brothers n sisters jadi mangsa,why cos we don care..we don care bout our rights…we are afraid to show taib who we are cos he wil put us in ISA…BUT WE ARE TALKING BOUT OUR RIGHTS N HE CANNOT GAGGED US COS WE ARE NOT WRONG BUT ONE DECLARING THE TRUTH.its our duty to speak and voice our opinion..i don want or expect kickback from anyone n i am not working for any stakeholders of the government.so nuf said..speak it out…land owners shud get their shares…but remember..there are many dayak also who may disagree b.cos of interests in d matter…i don hate any one but i don like to be push about or bullied,we must tell n educate our people but for now the street is d only vanue cos dayak are already displace from their land…be bold be strong for the Lord ur God is with u dayak.the poor,d marginalised and displaced sarawakianS…

    • 3rdClassCitizenofDayakOrigin

      That maybe true… but who is/was in charge of the government? All these alleged corruptions started from the top… the “non bumis” that you mentioned are small fry compared to the one frm higher up.

  • Anak Dayak

    Lama dah YB kita jual kita. Semua politictian sama sama. Buka Sejarah dia. Itu sebab sekarang our country emphasis on history. " You record the Good and the BAD history. """" HISTORY WILL TELL YOU'''' YOU GOOD OR BAD…… THE HISTORY WILL BE THERE…only now our rural people know that. Please tell them the story esp. the lonhhouse guys. Biar dia orang jual semua kita dayak. Kita balik telanjang miskin pakai cawat macasm asal. No point to argue. You just plott on politiics. or the politic will plot you. Change them, get new one, the next one poor kick them out… We the voters know what to do. Analyst who you vote.

    Amat paloi Iban Betong ka ngundi Jabu. Jabu = Temenggong Jugah.

    • http://none Watch Dog says…

      Sorry for the late reply.Please do not curse or scold them.They need educated people like you now.Now is the tome for us to UNITE.Please ANGER does NOT solve anything brother.Help them,talk to them,print this SR report.That is

      provided that you can enter the Long house (Rumah Panjai).Now the government is giving insruction NOT to admit oppositions into the longhouse,just too bad.

      Go out Rentap if you have risen from your grave but if you have taken RENTAP's name,go out in person and let the dayaks know. Jabu also has a RENTAP in his house.We need you to take pictures of the shortfalls of the people in the longhouse and send to SR.

    To all against Jabu,

    Rentap anak Jabu always seen drinking in Pub spending > RM2000 per night.He knows how to spend the money that his father gave.Every cents and dollar are from NCR land that they robbed from Natives.

    He will hang around in Hilton especially on Friday night.His favorite drink is Maccallan cost RM 1,000 per bottles.I have his photograph taken on many events especially with "Girls"kissing and hugging.

    • http://none Watch Dog says…
