The SALCRA Scandal – Stealing From Sarawak’s Poorest People

The SALCRA Scandal – Stealing From Sarawak’s Poorest People

This post is also available in: Iban, Malay

World's most incompetent company! - SALCRA HQ

Judging from his performance as Chairman of Salcra, it would be unwise to hire Deputy Chief Minister Alfred Jabu to run a fruit stall, let alone place the livelihoods of tens of thousands of families under his control.

The man has clearly squandered hundreds of millions of ringgit.  Yet, as he refuses to provide even the most basic standards of accountability, no one has a clue where all that money has gone ! 

All one can do under such circumstances is observe that Mr Jabu himself has an extremely large house and is noted for the consipicuous wealth of his family.  So, could it be that this most incompetent manager is nevertheless a highly competent thief?!

Meanwhile, the abiding shame and scandal of this BN Government is that those poor Native Customary Rights Landowners, whom they started driving into the SALCRA scheme more than 30 years ago on the pretext of rescuing them from poverty, are still scraping a living from the most miserable dividends that could possibly be imagined from the so-called business partnership run on their behalf by Mr Jabu.

Ripe for exploitation  

 
 

Luxurious interior of the Jabu home - where did the money come from?

You could not dream up a more exploitative system than the one devised by SALCRA (except of course Taib’s even more rapacious ‘Joint Venture Companies’, recently judged to be illegal and unconstitutional by the courts). 

Under the programme the state government offers NCR landowners formal title to their customary lands, but only if they agree to join in the SALCRA state-run palm oil plantations. 

This means they are forced to allow their land to be taken over and managed by Mr Jabu in return for their supposed ownership of it and a promised share of the proceeds.  What kind of land-ownership is that?

Why no public accountability?

The landowners are given no protection from the all-powerful Mr Jabu and his BN YB colleagues on the SALCRA Board under these arrangements.  Any Public Company where people can buy a few shares has by law to be rigorously audited with a publicly available Annual Report.  This is to protect members of the public, who are interested in investing.  Yet Jabu, although he is managing all the worldly wealth of the 20,000 thousand families who have been sucked into the SALCRA scheme, provides no public financial information at all!

What dividends there are are announced on a whim and at his own political convenience. 

Jabu has now acquired over 48,000 hectares of Native Customary Rights Lands within SALCRA (most of it planted with mature palms) and he has not provided a single audit or report detailing how any of it is being managed in all the past 35 years.  Needless to say the landowners themselves have no representation on the Board or within Management or any way of gaining any information whatsoever about the finances of the business in which they are supposed to be partners.

The dividend is a number Jabu just pulls out of the air!

New wing of Jabu's Kuching mansion - how does his Ministerial salary fund this?!

The landowners are forced to just wait and hope that their dividends will turn up at some stage in their bank accounts and that it will be sufficient for them to live on. 

Our enquiries have shown they are generally disappointed on both counts!  Numerous accounts exist of landowners who have received no dividends for years or otherwise pathetic pay outs that would not feed their families for a week.

Worse, Jabu habitually uses the dividend as a form of political blackmail, as if it was some kind of generous gesture or bribe on the part of a government that is in fact paying people peanuts from what is rightfully theirs.

Indeed, SALCRA members have been told to expect a ‘bumper payout’ from kind Mr Jabu over the next few days, timed nicely just before the election.  Perhaps they will also be threatened that only those who vote BN can expect to actually receive it?!  BN are, after all, specialists in blackmailing and bribing people with their own money.

100% of the profits ?  

 
 

Primitive as ever - poverty in the longhouses of Sarawak

Jabu has announced that this year he will be distributing what he says were a ‘record RM74 million’ in profits during the days before the election, saying that it is twice what he handed out last year.

So, what is this ‘bumper payout’ that Jabu has come up with?  After all, we know that the remit of SALCRA is for 100% of all the profits made under the scheme to be returned to the struggling landowners who have surrendered up their territories. 

From these basic figures it is possible to make a general if not a detailed judgement on Jabu’s performance as the man in charge of 48,000 hectares of palm plantations.  Sarawak Report has adopted the simple device of comparing his 100% profit figures with the over-all performance of the world’s largest commercial company IOI.  The difference is shocking - it emerges there could be no worse palm oil company in the world in which these people could have possibly invested.

Just one tenth the profit made by commercial plantations!

A RM 74 million ringgit profit on a 48,000 hectare palm plantation is quite simply pathetic.  And last year we are led to understand that the dividend was less than half that, we will say RM 35 million!

By comparison, just look at the figures provided by IOI in its 2010 Annual Report to see the sort of money that Mr Jabu should really have been earning and announcing in dividends.  IOI says that its operating profit last year amounted to RM 11,448 per hectare.  Yet if we look at Mr Jabu’s dividend of RM 74 million and divide that by the 48,000 hectares he is in charge of we arrive at a truly miserable profit of RM1,541 – one tenth of the commercial profit!

Even taking into account the various added costs of possible loans and other expenses that could diminish the operating profit the discrepancy between the two figures is ridiculous. 

Worse, the year before (when Jabu says he only announced half as much dividend) IOI actually managed to earn even more – a very healthy RM 13,347 per hectare.  Jabu however (given it was not an election year) could only apparently find RM 729 per hectare – far less than one tenth as much!! How is anyone supposed to feed his family off that?

The figures:

Commercial plantation earns RM 11,448 per hectare, Jabu’s SALCRA earns RM 1,541 per hectare[2009]

Commercial plantation earns RM 13,347 per hectare, Jabu’s SALCRA earns RM 729 per hectare [2008].

What a genuine commercial plantation expects to earn in profits per hectare - IOI's Annual Report 2010

 

From these figures we can also see that IOI declares that it extracts a yield of over 25 tons a hectare, whereas Jabu’s SALCRA has said it manages a mere 14-15 tons per year.  Why?

Time to sack the lousy Chairman and the rest of the Board?  

 

Deputy Chief Minister, Alfred Jabu - world's most incompetent businessman or world class cheat?

If this was a commercial outfit the shareholders would have long since called an Emergency General Meeting and demanded the immediate dismissal of such an abysmal performer as Mr Jabu! 

However, instead Taib has kept on his deputy, who has enjoyed years of luxury in return for keeping the Ibans of his area on the side of BN.  As a result those Ibans, who should have done well from their profitable crop, have suffered excruciating hardship, while BN politicians lectrue them on being patient as they wait for ‘development’.

But what are they waiting for?  Why is it that Mr Jabu only manages to make RM 1,500 per hectare, when IOI can make 11,448 per hectare?  Or, more to the point, what has happened to all those millions and millions of ringgit of missing money? 

We are talking about a missing RM 10,000 every year for every hectare of SALCRA plantation land.  This money would make all the difference to the lives of the poor NCR land owners, many of whom own just one or two hectares.

With a proper management of SALCRA these people could have been living comfortable lives with reasonable returns for the last 30 years, enjoying an income of upwards of 10-20,000 ringgit per year, instead of a miserable few hundred – or Jabu’s ‘bumper’ election handout this year of RM1,500!  So, why should they be patient?

What happened to the missing RM 500 million?

So, there is just one question for Jabu to answer – Is he the worst manager in the world or has he stolen the money? 

According to the IOI figures, Jabu has fallen short on half a billion ringgit of proceeds this year alone (48,000 X 11,500 - 74,000,000).  Last year it was even worse.  Therefore, unless and until Jabu is prepared to make the SALCRA figures public, he deserves to be condemned on both fronts.  We will assume, along with the rest of Sarawak, that he has both run SALCRA appallingly badly and that he has stolen a heck of a lot of the money! 

Sack him!

The victims of this pernicious corruption, the poor NCR landowners, may not have been given the normal rights and protections of ordinary shareholders in public companies by the corrupted Taib Mahmud.  However,  many of them do have votes.  It is for this reason that Jabu has been doing the rounds of the longhouses in his constituency over the past week, handing each family RM 500 to buy their votes! (his son has also been going around handing out crates of beer, presumably to dull their senses).

These people should bear in mind that Mr Jabu in fact owes them at least tens times as much in honest earnings that he has witheld from their SALCRA proceeds for this year alone.  They should see all that money and then times it by 30 before they even contemplate putting this man back in charge of their lives for another 5 years.  They should not allow beer and a few ringgit to stop them taking the next obvious step….

because at this election they can sack Jabu after all!

    My Oh My..SALCRA scheme..in Bau there are trees but NO fruits..why?? Because NO fertilizers..The fertilizers that SALCRA applied consisted of SALT, SAND and RED EARTH then add a few drops of magic inorganic portion..then bag into 5oKG bag and sells at RM125 per bag .When reaching SALCRA it cots RM155 per bag.

    Jabu consultancy fees per year RM1,000,000.00

    Ulu Awik Awik the palm trees are growing in the jingle..In Bau my friend has 35 ha but no DIVIDENDS for the past 15 years.The schemes are NOT done in a transparent manner. SALCRA GM can afford to buy the land at RM500,000.00 that is from SALCRA performance bonus maybe..

    SALCRA scheme churns out SLAVES as they are paid RM12.00 per day while poverty rate is RM720.00 per month..

    Do you all see this??? Do you still want to vote for JABU??

    Your life is in your destiny..SALCRA is poorly managed ..yes I agree.

    • Feeling good feeling

      Alfred Jabu sapu RM1.0 million as consultancy fees?? This is daylight robbery. Why you must be paid in real sense it should be an honorary post since you are the DCM, isn't it? This clearly shows your bad intention to rob the NCR people. Return all that you have robbed them.

      • Yes Sir

        Don't just question Jabu, he is the victim, ask Taib for all the answers will be more appropriate. Dayak have been cheated, but end of the day, they still go for BN because they never trust DAP. DAP know it will never win in the Dayak areas, so they only concentrate on the Chinese populated constituency. Nobody can save them, they have to help themselves, never drink and vote!

        • Feeling good feeling

          Yes DAP cannot win in Dayak areas because the Dayaks are all fools. Corrupt politicians trample the Dayaks and they still vote them, what kind of stupid mentality these Dayaks possess.

        • CWS

          Jabu is a victim? I guess he paid for his palace of a house with his government salary.

        • sukunsaep

          Are you serious, Jabu is also a victim? Boy! I would love to be a victim and be paid one million dollars in consultancy fee.

          Jabu could not have lasted all these decades if he had not been in cahoots with first Yakub and then Taib. Look at the others from the '70's. Where are they now?

        This is how Sarawak has been developed for 47 years with "added value" right down the chain. It gets more expensive as each corrupt person along the line gets a cut.

        Life was better before 1963- very true!

    • Sulong Matadar

      The Dayaks especially the IBANS are dammed STUPID people in the world. Even if they know openly they are being cheated by BN days & nights, months & months, years & years, in the end they still will vote BN. If the DAYAKS are smart enough, they can change the government anytime they wish, but they didn't want but prefer to live in exploitation by others!! That's what the DAYAKS are good at…majority are STUPID people. The smarter Dayaks would not vote for BN because they can see clearly BN is corrupt, that's the issue in this election, not more developments, more developments means creating more corrupt BN leaders, more Taibs and Jabus in the making in next 5 years if BN wins again. Wake up & stand up on your own DAYAKs especially the IBANs, don't be stupid race again, don't sell your dignity to people like Taib & Jabu!!!. No one can help you improve, except yourself Dayaks! So dont depend on Taib for your destiny, 30 yrs for being fools is enough!! Time to STOP it once for all.

        We are waking u but being a simple minded and peace loving people..we are easily influenced.We need people like you to teach and spread the message to our rural folks. You have to help instead of condemning us and labelled us a stupid.

        Can you help us? God bless you Sulong or so long???

        Malu meh asai ninga kitai Iban digelar Sulong Matadar the most STUPID people in the world. The truth is bitter pill to swallow. Terima kasih Wat Sulong.

        Kemaya haritu smarter Dayaks bepeluk dada ketawa ke STUPID Dayaks idup merinsa. Smarter Dayaks rising-rising meda majority STUPID Dayaks diau ba rumah panjai baka tembawai. Anang ke ka meri share business kosong, nulung nyain pom minta kereja anak STUPID Dayaks ga Smarter Dayaks enggai.

        Kati ko STUPID Dayaks enda ngundi BN; BN ga meri atap sing, baja, anak ikan, anak manuk, leka luba enggau paung kunyit. Maya kempen tu bisi meh BN meri kami ngirup ba kedai kupi. Mayuh danji sida meri kami pemansang, meri penyenang. Kala kami diberi BN beras china laban STUPID Dayaks nadai tanah endur bumai dah dirampas smater Dayaks.

        Taib does have a law degree, you know. Of course he is going to deny all the accusations and allegations. He has a right not to incriminate himself, just as you and I have or should have the same right. I don't know anything about investigation, but that is what needs to be done. Someone has to dig deep, deep into all his crooked and illegal dealings and come up with proof that will stand up in a court of law, or at least in the court of public opinion and/or voters so that he won't be in a position to continue robbing us.

    • Slump Dwellers

      Jabu had never been and will go to school. I remember once he said that there were many rural people hade been rich because of their participation in SALCRA project. I wrote berita harian ansk him to explain. I wonder if he is expecting the rural people of getting the same amount of dividend per hectare of land as what he is getting for chairmanship fee.

      Eversince i participated in the so called development as he had will always say the most dividend was RM600.00 per hectare and i had to wait for one year to get. If only i know before i would rather let wild trees to grow on my land and i believe after all this year i will have more timber to sell than SALCRA.

    Oh ha, Not only we have land Thief, We also have Oil Palm BIG Brother THIEF! So the 20,000 landowners are making the THIEVES (n Associates) 10 times Richer every year at the landowner expense and at the same time the 20,000 landowners become 10 TIMES poorer comparatively every year. Pity the landowners for being fooled year in year out for more than 20 years already!

    No wonder Salcra executives can have overseas trips now n then profiting from landowners' ignorance of comparative accounting, in this case taking IOI as an example.

    Lack of transparencies seem so prevalent that it becomes the NORM in the present BN

  • ibat

    They use to get Sarawak Plantations as management consultant and paid higher fees than what the scheme participants got as dividends.

    The financial results of SALCRA is even more pathetic if you take into consideration that a substantial amount of capital expenditure is funded by government grants as opposed to loans, and a lot of development expenditure is funded by soft government loans with minimal to zero interest.

    Incompetent management by competent fools, perhaps?

How to change if we already struggles with a minimum of wages? They the leader have to change actually. Stop bully the rakyat for they own sack..

    • Multi-Track Minded

      Sirs, Mdms, Bros & Sisters,

      Check this Facts and Figures that I have worked out:

      1. Oil palms generally begin to produce fruits 30 months after being planted in the fields with commercial harvest commencing six months later. However, the yield of an oil palm is relatively low at this stage. As the oil palm continues to mature, its yield increases and it reaches peak production in years seven to 18.

      a. Fully mature oil palms produce 18 to 30 metric tonnes of fresh fruit bunches per hectare a year. Jabu declared only 14.9 tons

      b. Base on present market price of RM 3,500 per metric tonne, this means 1 hectare = RM 63,000 to RM 105,000 per year.

      c. Throughout its high yield periods of 9 – 11 years, total yields are estimated between 160 to 320 metric tons per hectare.

      2. Land owners who's lands were involved with the plantation scheme were not given a single cent of bonus in the first 5-7 years. Even after reaching high yield periods, they were only paid the bonuses of between RM 450 TO RM 1,250 per year. (Correct me if I am wrong)

      3. Workers were only given salaries of RM 12.00 to RM 15.00 ( USD 3.87 to USD 4.83) per day After deduction of their SOCSO and EPF, there'd only left between RM 8.50 to RM 11.50 (USD 2.74 TO USD 3.7) for their all day's hard works. Real, proven case of modern day S.L.A.V.E.R.Y

      4. Standard Number of workers required for every hectare = 3 or 4. In Sarawak, probably only 2 due to lack of interest from locals.

      > 3 workers X 26 days X RM 12.00 = RM 936.00 paids for manpower for every hectare, whilst, every hectare contributes an average yield of RM 11,000.00 per month.

      > Land owners were only given bonuses of once a year.

      I would be glad if anybody who knows better can clarify this. Thanks for reading.

      • anembiak sarawak

        yes man you almost correct about the fact that you mention. actually most of the land owner who join the salcra, only receive bonuses or so called dividend rm250 that was last 2009. the bonuses were gave near election only. not every year the land owner receive their bonuses. on other hand, the land owner who not join any scheme but doing by their own oil palm plantation receive rm3000-rm5000 per month per hectares. so the big question to salcra, where are the bonuses and profit goes???

      • Mag

        Multi-Track Minded, I refer to your assumptions a. and b. below.

        "a. Fully mature oil palms produce 18 to 30 metric tonnes of fresh fruit bunches per hectare a year. Jabu declared only 14.9 tons

        b. Base on present market price of RM 3,500 per metric tonne, this means 1 hectare = RM 63,000 to RM 105,000 per year."

        ————————————————

        Your computation is seriously flawed because market price is RM for crude palm oil (CPO) whereas a. gives yield of fresh fruit bunches (FFB).

        At roughly 20% oil from 100% FFB, your estimate of income from each hectare should be 20% or 1/5 of the figures you arrived at.

        At 20%, it corresponds to the figures from commercial plantations.

        I have no issue with the tone and direction of this article but, please, carry out discussions with accurate information.

    Jabu is a Thief & he tried to scare the ibans by saying their leader died becoz they allow Gobala Krishna to enter long house wihtout their ritual.The Ghost becomes angry if stranger enters long house.Such stories are created by this idiot jabu..ANother thing Sarawakians are made scared by saying Taib is powerful & he keeps lots of Bomoh.This is all Bullshit.Bomoh times are over this is technology time.Wakeup Sarawakians and kick on Jabu/Taib A*S.

    • http://none Watch Dog

      Brothers and sisters..do NOT be scared of Taib or Jabu's djins,satans,lucifers..As Christians this is what you should say:-

      "BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS I COMMAND YOU TO BE USESLESS AND GO TO HELL AS THAT'S WHERE YOU BELONG" IN JESUS NAME I COMMAND YOU TO PERISHED TO HELL" AMEN/AMEN/AMEN.

      SAY THE ABOVE SENTENCE BRO.THEY ARE NOT GREATER THAN GOD.

      • Proud Sarawakian

        i disagree. that's not what christianity is about … LOVE is the greatest commandment. i am not saying we should "love" BN .. hahaha. NO way. But it aint right to use God's name in vain.

          YES OF COURSE YOU ARE RIGHT.LOVE IS WHAT JESUS PREACHED.THAT IS WHY THE SON OF A HAMAS LEADER CONVERT T CHRISTIANITY AFTER READING THE THREE WORDS IN THE BIBLE WHEN HE WAS IN AN ISRAELI PRISON.

          BUT HERE BRO,WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT BOMOH,SATAN,DJINS AND LUCIFERS

  • Iban in OZ

    Nothing shocks me in regards to corruptions within the ruling government. This goes back to the 80s perhaps 70s but no one pointed them out.

    It's time to make a change. Kick BN out. Kick all the Dayaks YBs out because they are indeed useless to the Dayaks. Bring PBB and PRS down to their knees. Let them crawl like maggots for that's what they are.

  • Antu Jelu

    The bomoh is to keep Taib's YBs at bay.

    SALCRA is use by Jabu to fatten his pocket.

    The Iban have placed their trust in the wrong hand.

    Jabu has betrayed the trust the Iban given him.

    His future generations have been cursed.

    Jabu himself has chosen his path to hell.

    And it is in hell that he will suffer forever and ever.

    His sin is too thick.

    His skin also very thick.

    But his soul is very thin.

    He is rich in his pocket.

    But poor in his heart.

    This type of people will die with their eyes wide open.

    Amen!

  • Iban Layar

    Compare to late Tun Jugah, Jabu has 0.0 per cent. He is following Taib`s footstep – will not retire from politics until his last breath.

  • layar guy

    My Dear Friends,

    Pls tell your people in SALCRA program to lodge Polis Report immediately that they have been cheated by Jabu and his management team in SALCRA. Act now immediately no delay….JOE UNGANG you must make sure that the layar people are aware of this report.

  • CWS

    Sarawakians, will you ever learn from your past mistakes? If not, then it's a crying shame!

    • Tiarama

      CWS, it isn't all the Sarawakians. You will see the Chinese punishing SUPP in the upcoming election. It is the dayak especially the Ibans who can be bought easily. See Leo Moggie, Daniel Tajem, Jabu, Masing, Mawan and …… You give them money or a minister post and they will follow you.

      Now you see many past PBDS members who split SNAP earlier wanted to go back to SNAP because they feel SNAP will have better chance of getting elected in a dayak majority area.

      My advice to Stanley Jugol and Edwin Dunggang is don't accept those past PBDS members. If they get elected they will be bought over by Taib. They will again betray SNAP. Didn't you learn the lesson before?

      Here I like to dispute what others said about Stanley Jugol.

      I know him and his late father (a very good man) for more than 40 years. Stanley has always been loyal to SNAP and have never left SNAP – isn't that alone prove that he is more trust worthy than any Iban I can think of.

  • Serian

    OGM, My family have few hectare of land in SALCRA, and you JABU paid us 0.0% dividend.

  • Multi-Track Minded

    Sirs, Mdms, Bros & Sisters,

    Check this Facts and Figures that I have worked out:

    1. Oil palms generally begin to produce fruits 30 months after being planted in the fields with commercial harvest commencing six months later. However, the yield of an oil palm is relatively low at this stage. As the oil palm continues to mature, its yield increases and it reaches peak production in years seven to 18.

    a. Fully mature oil palms produce 18 to 30 metric tonnes of fresh fruit bunches per hectare a year. Jabu declared only 14.9 tons

    b. Base on present market price of RM 3,500 per metric tonne, this means 1 hectare = RM 63,000 to RM 105,000 per year.

    c. Throughout its high yield periods of 9 – 11 years, total yields are estimated between 160 to 320 metric tons per hectare.

    2. Land owners who’s lands were involved with the plantation scheme were not given a single cent of bonus in the first 5-7 years. Even after reaching high yield periods, they were only paid the bonuses of between RM 450 TO RM 1,250 per year. (Correct me if I am wrong)

    3. Workers were only given salaries of RM 12.00 to RM 15.00 ( USD 3.87 to USD 4.83) per day After deduction of their SOCSO and EPF, there’d only left between RM 8.50 to RM 11.50 (USD 2.74 TO USD 3.7) for their all day’s hard works. Real, proven case of modern day S.L.A.V.E.R.Y

    4. Standard Number of workers required for every hectare = 3 or 4. In Sarawak, probably only 2 due to lack of interest from locals.

    > 3 workers X 26 days X RM 12.00 = RM 936.00 paids for manpower for every hectare, whilst, every hectare contributes an average yield of RM 11,000.00 per month.

    > Land owners were only given bonuses of once a year.

    I would be glad if anybody who knows better can clarify this. Thanks for reading.

  • Peen Keening

    A company I work with has 35,000 hectares of mature oil palm plantation. For the financial year ending Dec 2010, the company achieved a revenue of RM420.9 mil. Pretax profit for year ending 2010 was RM131.4 mil.

    The oil palm industry people know that Sarawak's land is the most fertile land for oil palm crop compared to land in Malaya.

    Comparing SALCRA's performance against the average performers in the industry, the saga of misappropriation of people's money, land and natural resources by the BN gov't continues unabated.

    • Yes Sir

      Oil Palm plantation mostly belonged to ex loggers or timber tycoons and most of them are Foochow Chinese who have very close relationship to CM.

      I have a Iban friend who enjoyed in the Pubs every night and he told me that he did not work as a truck driver anymore because his allocated land has been "rented" to a tycoon for planting of oil palm. He received RM4,000-6,000 per month and need not have to work again.

      • Tiarama

        That deal is better than "renting" your land to Jabu! See how Jabu "tiabed" his people.

      • Teaser

        Lets go after those timber tycoons as well then. We know they are also as guilty as thier crony master. They should have been held responsible for the log jam in Rajang river which caused so much sufferings to the ulu folks.

        Sarawak is running low on wild animals supply.. and there are these WWF people in town asking for donation for thier wild life projects. DO NOT Donate. Ask them to go to Sambling, Shin Yang, Rimbunan Hijau, KTS, WTK,TA AN and other Timber compannies and OIL Palm Plantation owners. The money from the forest are in thier bank accounts. They are the ones who cut down the trees and made the animals to suffer. Now the animals are in the restaurants because there are no more jungles for them to live in.Even the fish are jumping out of the rivers to live in restaurant glass tanks because the rivers are not rivers anymore but chemical tanks and containers. Dangerous place to live in indeed!

        As for SELCRA… Cheat on while you still can!

        For your Iban friend, good luck cause prices of midin alone will make him poor one day!

    you are all looking at i believe "manipulation of accounts".. countless corporate companies in malaysia does this. Somehow from the begining it smells bad, more so when a former state agriculture director bringing in FELDA concept for his fellow kg folks..there is bound to be a scam… i'm pretty sure what you've said in the article above is so very very true..

    Another area where you should look at are the suppliers/contractors to SALCRA. This is where the real loopholes are ( i mean where all the profits have gone to)…you'd be suprise to know..

  • http://sarawakreport JBJ Sabah

    Kpd org2 M'sia, org Sarawak khususnya: I'm not highly educated, so 4give my English & B.M. After reading all about Sarawak's stories from both sides, the govt(sarawak & Federal govt) and the opposition, n also having talks with lots of people frm all walks of life over the yrs, I find dat both hv good points, but the GIST of the story/issue here s to hv clean, morally good, n trustworthy leaders. Normal law-abiding Citizens/voters & the Oppositions seems to match with each other as far as current issues r concerned, esp with regards to 'fairplay' on many issues, about lands, opportunities, Taib's monopoly and what not for example. Their onslaught towards the govt are relentless and the govt are just defensive and sometimes helpless bcos of the truth that they are fighting for. If what Ive read are all true, then I strongly believe Taib's regime is doomed. Nothing,no one, not even all the Powerful leaders all over the world combined together can help Taib's regime to win the coming Sarawak election!!! People there are angry, humiliated and felt cheated. They asked how could they have parasites, viruses, murderers, leeches, cancers, satan-like leaders leading them??? I pray for them!!!

    Sarawak VOTERS be smart!

    Its people power…..remember that…leaders are nothing without people's vote….

    though you may argue that you have tonnes of money and we are nothing without you..if you think back…if we all chose to dispose you by not voting you..you can also become nothing…but your day will come when you become nothing when you enter 6 feet underground…remember you will also experience death too…dont forget that…just like each and everyone of you….not sure if your death will come painful or not is a different story…but surely u will experience death too..you are not immortal..remember that…:)

    Everyone, please help to educate our rural folks that a government is nothing more than a team of representatives employed by the people to manage the country! This is the essence of a democracy. Sadly, many of our rural folks in Sarawak are still in the feudalistic mentality of fearing the “government”. Tell them that they have the power to decide who they want to "employ". If you have already tried a management team who has been habitually stealling tons of money from your assests, would you still want to employ that team? Come April 16 we must all vote to change the team. Better a new team then a proven team of thieves! Think of our children. Act now before there is little left. Only blind, ignorant or intimidated stake-holders would still insist on employing a proven team of thieves.

    So guys the revealation says it all. True JABU is not the desendent of Rentap. He just to make sure that people will think highly about him. He is just a lousycheat. The iban cheater, the penipu,perompak & apai bayat.

    However, Betong people despite their good education still support jabu.WHY? Betong why still retain this man?

    The Saclra is being formed to cheat the poor dayaks. So Aki Rentap is the true Iban warrior. He fought against the orang puteh because orang Puteh want to subjugate the dayaks. BUT Jabu cheats!. HE! Is it true that Jabu keturunan Rentap?. I think Niang Rentap don't want to associate himself with this Cheat otherwise "the Sebayan say" LOOK! how come your cucu-chichit cheat our very own people?

    Jabu stop the game.You try to dirty your children. Next time when the name of JABU is being mentioned,people will spit at them.PUI!

    The longer you stay in power the poorer will the dayaks be. You are just puppet & this report will be a challenge to you. NO more antu net.Otherwise you will net all the Saclra profit for yourself. Badu agi nuan, Pulai , ngaga bubu, tan bubu, Nyala anang merinsa ka bangsa diri.

    Chinese have the 2nd largest population in Sarawak yet look at their state assembly constituencies. Ng Yen Yen said the DAP cannnot form government even if it wins. But who's the CM of Penang? And if we give full support to MCA, will it be able to form government? In which state except Penang? Can Chua Siok Lek become Prime Minister or even Deputy Prime Minister or even Finance Minister? If we support SUPP, can George Chan become the Chief Minister?

    Only Dayak is able to challenge Taib, PR is able to become Chief Minister, so why give chance to Melanau?

    Jabu should succeed Taib since he is in the PBB, but why Taib didn't mention about him just because he is just a Dayak. So Dayak should not trust Taib and should understand the position of Jabu.

    How on earth can anyone claim the people have benefited from such land development schemes when even after 30 years of SALCRA's operations, the people are still getting chicken feed in the form of paltry yearly bonuses? Not to mention their sweat, blood and tears in having to struggle with their daily lives over the years in partnership with SALCRA. It boggles the mind.

    Not unless Taib and cronies have this weird notion that 'helping the people' means giving them chicken feed! This is a reflection of how 'dear'(pun intended) they are to the people!

Whats done is done, it's a mistake that we sarawakian have to live with it and continue to hunt us in years to come. Unite and change for the better future.

    Lee Shing Cheng,owner of IOI was an ice cream seller in Klang, pushing a bicycle much bigger than him when he eked out a living helping his big family…….self made billionaire and worked his damn heart out, blood, sweat and tears…..he had Anwar's father as Chairman of his company at one time,when Anwar was a bigwig in UMNO…..that's another story but still the hallmark of doing business in Malaysia under the BN/UMNO is one of patronage and political influence….

    the story in Sarawak is one of pure greed and swindles and embezzlement….political abuse, criminal and blatant and IN YOUR FACE……the PBB leaders are all powerful and untouchable…..for over 30 years the people have been robbed blind////

    time to wake up and VOTE them out this 16th April…..better late than never

    Tunisia, Eygpt,Libya,Yemen, Bahrain,Jordan,Syria…..SARAWAK!!!!

      The Saribas Iban look like a moron Lakia, Its not possible to tell them to wake up because everytime they try to wake up and resist the BN they suffer another KO by their own beer and langkau with compliments from mr.rentap.so this scenario is repeated again and again for the last 36 years of Mr.Jabu reign in Betong. Betong/Layar cannot be won by the opposition as long as Tahi Mahmud the Nyanyuk is alive.The three little minnos were not born when Jabu is already a powerful deputy,,Ngumbang,Joe and Embat agi nusu.

      SALCRA is run by BETONGKUZA..How could Jabu run an oil palm plantation as all he knew is to plant KEPAYANG..where is your kepayang Jabu???

      Brothers and sisters if you walk into SALCRA estate..the workers just sit down and do NOT know what to do. All the estate managers and Regional estate managers are following the books on rate but NOT common sense at all.In their rates are SLAVERY pay RM12.00 per day.

      Come on SALCRA's Board of Directors..use you heads together so that you will get more PIK and Bonus and the land owners will get more too.Shall I say that it is run by a BUNCH of idiots??Lazy lots.

      Cocoa scheme also FAILED.Very soon oil palm will also fail..ha ha ha ha

    Dear SR and all people of good will out there….

    Actually I've of know of SR just over a week ago after being 'introduced' by a friend to read the article on SNAP's Deal with BN – The Damning Evidence!' Since then, I've been following and reading SR,trying to catch up with what I've missed and to make up for the lost times, you may say.

    For the noble caused that SR and concerned citizens are striving and fighting for, I salute and congratulate you all. Looking deep into the heartland of our beloved Sarawak, one cannot help but say, 'thank God for the peaceful land with peace-loving people. How blessed are we to live in a land 'sheltered' from serious natural disasters…earthquake, typhoon, volcanoes!' Yet…this is just one side of coin. When one looks deeper, there is indeed turmoil. One can safely say, it is caused by human greed and arrogance. Yes, none of us can deny the fact that the above-mentioned attitudes of human being are prevalent and are taking their toll on the lives of many innocent citizens except those who chose to. A sad state of affair, isn't it in a land rich in natural resources?

    Injustice and exploitation of all kinds and so too is corruption are rampant and prevalent, and as it were, sweep every corner of our land. At the end of the day, one may ask, 'where have all our riches gone to?' Yet in all of these, when one start asking and questioning, one risks being sacked from work or being imprisoned without trial under Internal Security Act, what a country!

    To SR and all readers, I'm writing neither as an activist of any kind nor as person affiliated to any political party but as a concerned Malaysian citizen born, raised and still live in Sarawak and hopefully be laid rest in Sarawak soil too. For elders from whatever walk of life, yes, it is our duty and obligation to form the conscience of our people that all may be wise and prudent especially in choosing the right person and people to govern, to guide and care for every citizen regardless of race, creed and status quo.

    If you are being cut to the heart seeing our fellow human being being exploited, so am I. Our government have been talking about politics of development with a vision that ensures employment. Sounds very convincing and enticing isn't it but just look at where the developments are! In the kampungs, in the ulus with FELDA and SALCRA? I doubt. The kampungs and ulus are no 'comfort zones' I know because I have been to many kampungs in Sri Aman right up to Sematan. Friends jokingly say, 'the road to Biawak can never be any better because it is JALAN BIAWAK, the track for monitor lizard, so what do we expect! There is no comfort in driving to many kampungs even until today. Electricity? Ah…many kampungs are still 'in the dark.' Clean water supply? To precious even to use rain water to wash one's face!

    SR, if the revelations on the abuses, the exploitations, injustices you made thus far are meant to 'prick' the conscience of the people's representatives in the government that they may be what we call, fair and square, well done and keep it up. To all readers, be wise and vote conscientiously come April 16th. Every vote counts. God bless.

    Hi voters,

    Stop being fooled by Taib/Jabu/BN.Vote for PKR candidate contesting at Betong constituent.

    Taib/Jabu/BN have enough of wealth, power.He & his family members have enough of Betong wealth. Put a stop of their share in our NCR in Betong & Sarawak as a whole.

    We need fresh, new,young& good vision leader in Betong & not power greedy like Taib & Jabu who will never let or give chance to younger generation to be the leaders of Betong/Sarawak.

    The longer Taib & Jabu & BN in power the more land grab will happen in Betong/Sarawak. If you voters do not want to be the slave of your own land, DO NOT VOTE FOR TAIB/JABU.

  • http://yahoo anakbetong

    Embat, Joe or Ngumbang, if only your top leaders can't solve the sets allocation for PR, then the three of you really have or MUST sit down together & work out a formula to unseat Jabu. Let one of you stand this coming election so that the chances will be in our PR favour.There is ZERO chances that anyone of you will win Betong/Layar constituent if the three of you all stand for election.What Betong voters scared of is that each one of you will lose your deposite or 2 out of 3 of you will be BOUGHT by Jabu so as to split the opposition votes.If the 3 of you all stand for this coming election, Jabu will laugh at the 3 of you and further be a traitor to Layar/Betong FOLKS.

    This is the best election for Layar voters to vote for change ONLY IF ONE OF YOU stand one to one with Jabu.So,the 3 of you should work togteher for the common good of Betong folks & DON'T GIVE jABU THE CHANCE TO GRAB OUR LAND ANYMORE.

    Jabu is greedy for power & money

No need to list down yours cos we know you live on your master taib hand out!…and oppositons politicians do not work alone, they have advisors.

  • Fairplay

    Our Dayak leaders in BN always say that they want the Dayaks to be educated to reduce poverty among them. But through their deeds, I believe deep in their hearts they want us to remain stupid so that only they would prosper. When comes election they would tell us that only BN can bring development. We are held hostages far too long. Until we fight back, never dream of being "released". The moment has come. It's April 16, 2011. Cast your votes wisely to safeguard your furure generation. Even our religious freedom is being curbed.

  • Disgusted

    I suggest that SR do some research on how Datuk Peter Namsian of SPDP buys NCR lands in Salcra oil palm in Stenggang and Jagoi, Bau for as cheap as RM500 per ha. Every year when the dividents are announced to the landowners the actual recepient is Peter Namsian. Although the scale of his scam is nothing compared to Taib's, he is equally the grabber of the Bidayuh NCR lands.
