Don't flex legal muscle on defenceless Orang Asli, K'tan gov't told

Published on  |  Modified on

Human rights group Pusat Komas has urged the Kelantan government to resolve the grouses of the state's Orang Asli community instead of using strong-arm tactics against them.

"The high-handed actions of the officers in arresting the Orang Asli and tearing down their blockade is a clear act of bullying by the enforcement officers and the Kelantan government.

"We strongly urge the Kelantan government to address the root cause of the problem and not use the might of law on the defenceless Orang Asli community," said Pusat Komas programme coordinator Ryan Chua.
