The lawyer for the Orang Laut Seletar group seeking compensation for their ancestral lands in Stulang Laut claims that the state government is taking a hard line in the case, and tying it down with technicalities.

This comes despite a statement on June 5 by recently appointed Johor Menteri Besar Dr Sahruddin Jamal indicating a swift resolution to the case which dates back to 1993.
