The claim of 131 native litigants for 5,000 acres of native land in Pegagau, Sempoana, in a RM500 million suit was thrown out after two days of argument in the Kota Kinabalu High Court on the grounds that it had no original jurisdiction to hear cases involving such land or natives.

The litigants had alleged misrepresentation, breach of trust, fraud, cheating, and conspiracy in their plea before the court since, among others, the land in question has now been re-designated as country lease (non-native) land.
