Gangsters hired by BLD brought along machetes and explosives to threaten longhouse folks
ULU NIAH – Gangsters that were hired by BLD Resources, an oil palm company currently in dispute with the native landowners of Rumah Ranggong and Rumah Belilie, last Friday went to the outskirts of the native customary land boundary of Rumah Ranggong armed with machetes and explosives in an attempt to threaten and intimidate the longhouse residents.
We have just received pictures (see attached) from the residents of Rumah Ranggong on the incident and also pictures of the machetes and explosives brought by the gangsters.
Gang Leader being arrested by what about the others?
Our own Ibans Gangsters reported being paid for merely RM100 as “Security Personnel ?
He thought that he can mess arround with the Ibans of Ulu Niah?
The Gangsters were on Camping trip at the Oil Palm Estate?
