Logging activities have resumed in Kampung Sungai Papan after the commencement of the recovery movement control order, according to the Center for Orang Asli Concerns. BFM reached out to COAC coordinator Colin Nicholas to understand the on-the-ground situation between the Temiar community and the loggers and what the lifting of restrictions means for the land rights of Orang Asli.

MP of this constitution must be busy politicking that he forgot or refuse to take note of his own backyard being raped & destroyed by corrupted greedy goons.

Probably before the next Election a temporary stop order will be issued and rice bags & sardine will be distributed to those who suffered.

Thats the current 3rd world Political Policy.
Where does Malaysia stand?????
