NCR Land and Logging Issues in N.34 Krian

NCR and Logging are widespread issue in N.34 Krian Constituency.This included Selambong,Entebu,Engkudu,Kabo,Awas,Ulu Krian,Grenjang and now Kaki Wong,Mapar,Sebubu,Nanga Drau,and Babang

Im just wondering what have have our YB(Dtk Peter Nyaruk) and MP(Jelaing Mersat)has done to protect the interest of the poor landowners…?Dont tell me that they are not aware of what happen in their Constituencies.What more to say when a Logging License has been issued over our NCR Land

SALCRA in their meet up session with people at Krangan Rusa (3/8/10) and Mapar (4/8/10) strongly denied any involvement with the issuance of timber licence. We must commend SALCRA led by two officers (Mr. Martin & Mr. Semiji) from SALCRA HQ, Kuching for making extra ordinary fast action.

Strangely, in the same forum, I was informed by those attending the dialogue that a pengulu gave briefing on the financial benefits associated with the proposed logging operation.

It seems ironic that while SALCRA was telling people it had nothing to do with the timber licence, some body, who is a penghulu from other area, spoke up, in the same forum and acted as if he was an official representaive of the Timber company? Where does this Pengulu stand in this issue??? Let us try to figure it

The license was approved to Syarikat Kayu Rimba on 24/5/10 for 1 year (T/8475). It is for an area of 3,103ha. Special condition to take note is Section 14 in the license..if I am not mistaken they cannot extract on land if the land owner ar…e against it. I think it is for salvage logging with no girth limit. The land as we know are recognized as NCR.

The locality as in the license here stated Sg Krian & Mapar area, Sarawak with a size of 3,103ha(Land confirmed as subject to NCR by Land and Survey Dept).

Latest update:

8/8/2010:Sebubu 100% against balak, Babang 100% against balak, Mapar mixed up balak with SALCRA, Krangan Rusa majority against but still there is a handful of people who have vested interest,Nanga Drau can’t do much,Scared of Yang Mulia Penghulu Garan

Except for Yang Mulia Penghulu Garan and TR Gana,all of them in Nanga Drau,reject the Logging

9/8/2010:From now onward for Garan’s close kuncu like TR Gana (Drau), TR Saban & Josephine Entira (Mapar) the rest of the landowners say “fuck” to Syarikat Kayu Rimba. Garan has nothing to lose, he has no more land abis dijual, now he is selling reta orang bukai.

We will see whether Nyarok and Jelaing still want to keep Garan as Penghulu and Josephine Entira as SPDP Wanita head for Krian Tengah area. Both of them have for so long created havoc in the area and should be expel from the party unless they are birds of the same feathers

Rh Naing, Melak had submitted their letter of protest to the Director of Forest today.
Every household from 3 longhouses in Babang reject logging outrightly, they are writing to the Forestry to exclude their land

10/8/2010:Sida di Nanga Drau Saturday tu baum..with or without Penghulu Garan and TR Gana. And I also heard that bala kaki Syarikat Kayu Rimba has been telling orang di menua din, REJECTING LOGGING=REJECTING SALCRA.

17/8/2010:Instead of helping the unfortunate folks who have been left alone trying to protect their natural resources through existing government channel, an official aide to one of the YBs came out with an unbecoming statement blaming certain parties for making the issue unnecessarily big. I want to know where was him all those while. Hope it is only his personal opinion n does not reflect the stand of his boss.

Suggestion by some “Friends”

First of all, the affected residents much lodge a police report. In the report they must say which area the company is operating, what was damaged, what is the name of the company, when did they start encroaching.

The longhouse residents would have to meet and discuss what do they want to do next. My suggestion is they form an action committee to investigate the logging company. Get the license number, if any. Then write a complain/protest letter to the company and cc it to Forestry, Police, YB in the area and DO. Also, state in the letter the reason for the complaint.

Can call for a press conference or write a press statement to the media. The action committee should also consider to survey and map their NCR territory. In the mean time can do a sketch map to show the NCR area.

If they want to take legal action have to gather their evidence. Pictures, oral evidence of occupation, any documentation to proof the area is occupied by the Ibans, etc

Enti sida seati enggau berani, can do direct action. That means blockade.

Also they can come to see us in Miri.


  1. Who are the registered owners of the company? Please check at Kuching district office as firm is having registered office in kuching. Are the ownwer affliated to a local politicians.

  2. Anthony Kuin once stood in an election in song and he spoke in English in the longhouse. Perhaps that was after he just came back from USA from joining the American Field service. Person is also a well known character.
