Ibans mount blockade against Naroden’s companies

About 100 Iban land owners from Kpg. Sungai Lingkau, Melanjok and Sekendu in Simunjan today (5 May) mounted a blockade to prevent workers of Hydroflow and Melur Gemilang from entering their NCR land.

A manager from the company promised the landowners who maintained the blockade not to enter the area, and to bring out all the machinery.

The landowners expected the manager to lodge a report with the Police and they also expected to be arrested in the defence of their land from being encroached into.

Hydroflow and Melur Gemilang are owned by Yang Berhormat Naroden Majais, the Simunjan State assemblyman. He is known as the "Simunjan King of oil palm", owning more than 48,000 acres of land including NCR land of oil palm.

Meanwhile, six longhouses in the Kpg. Samalatong/Kepayang area will meet on Wednesday night to reject the offer of DD Plantations and Pelita Holdings Sdn. Bhd. to develop their NCR land. The agreement has already been signed between 46 longhouse chiefs with the DD Plantations and Pelita Holdings Sdn. Bhd.

But the landowners from these six longhouses prefer their NCR land to be developed by SALCRA where their equity participation is 70% as compared with 30% given by DD plantations and Pelita. - The Broken Shield

Yes,the Ibans MUST stand up and take this into their own hands becos this 'foreigners' are bend on stealing the lands that the dayaks depend on.All effort must be make to ensure that this stealing must stop.
The rich towkay becomes richer and the dayaks are left with nothing but to guard the oil palm plantation.

The plantation companies encroached into NCR lands were given licences by the government. Then the landowners mounted a blockade to prevent workers of the plantation companies from entering their NCR lands are alleged to commit a criminal offence and subjected to be arrested by the police.

The law is as such, but where is the fairness?
