Timber leading S'wak gov't into legal soup
A rash of legal actions is being planned against the Sarawak government over licences granted for the extraction of timber from native customary rights (NCR) land and catchment areas by a state representative who is disappointed that his questions on the issue had been ignored.
PKR Batu Lintang assemblyperson See Chee How said he will file a series of court actions against the government and the timber companies concerned.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
