More For Jabu, Fadillah Yusof and Abit Joo !

Sarawak Report

Do these Dirty YBs really represent their longhouse communities or their fellow plunderers Taib and Najib Razak of Malaysia?

Over the past few days we have exposed some of the corrupt hand outs that have benefitted BN’s Dirty Datuks.

But, once someone has embarked on cheating their people to get rich, they don’t stop.  They keep looking for more.

So, we can now present some more of the corrupt sources of income that explain the extravagant wealth of three of these BN politicians, DCM Alfred Jabu, Fadillah Yusof and MP Billy Abit Joo, which contrasts so painfully with the poverty of their constituents.

Stealing from their own people

Fruits of development – a longhouse in Betong

It is indeed remarkable that so much of the plunder that has been carried out by BN YBs has been against their own people in their own constituencies.

It seems a BN YB likes nothing better than to champion the ‘development’ of their constituency, through land grabs, logging and plantations, so that they can exploit their political influence to steal as much of the profit as possible!

What BN YBs never do is work to make sure that a fair share of those profits go back to their own native communities, who have

BN don’t even always pay up – this headman was never paid his RM5,000 bribe for getting his longhouse to vote BN!

lost their lands and their living to the so-called ‘development’.

After all as Najib Razak famously warned:

“do not tell these people what they do not need to know”.

By which he meant it is better to keep these people poor and ignorant so that they remain happy with RM50 at election time and do not realise the value of the trees and the land which we have stolen.

These BN YBs think that they can keep the communities obedient, as long as they pay small salaries and kickbacks to the local longhouse chiefs, whom they can threaten with penalties and job losses if they allow their people to vote against BN.

This was the point of Wargana Consortium, which Awang Tenggah alleged was owned by the people of Bakun, but which turns out to be owned by MP Billy Abit Joo and his business cronies, along with one share each for local headmen.

Jabu’s lands – Durafarm Sdn Bhd

Likewise Jabu has amassed a vast series of plantations, which he has put into the hands of his family, much of which is Native Customary Land, snatched from his local people in his local region of Betong.

Jabu’s nephew, Robert Lawson Chuat was the contact for Durafarm and still holds a large share of the plantation. How much did WTK pay to take it over?

The company Durafarm was put in the hands of Jabu’s nephew, Robert Lawson Chuat and has now been taken over by WTK.

Robert Lawson Chuat is, of course, the local YB for Bukit Saban. How much did this crony timber and plantation company pay to Jabu in the process, we wonder, and what clearer example of the local BN representatives taking advantage of their own constituents?

Local BN YB, Jabu’s nephew Robert Lawson Chuat, and a supreme council member of the Dayak Chamber of Commerce still have shares in land taken from their local people. How can this be?

Ocarina Development (above) is one of the companies owned by Taib timber crony, WTK’s Wong Kie Nai.  But look who else gets a nice slice of shares, Edwin anak Banta of the Dayak Chamber of Commerce.  Once again it is Taib’s key ‘yes men’ who get the benefits out of the impoverishment of the Dayak people!

YB Robert Lawson Chuat is of course also the Director of the company KACC Construction, which we have exposed for corruptly receiving HALF A BILLION ringgit worth of state contracts in recent years.

Other shareholders are Jabu’s own daughter, Jennifer, and the family of another Federal MP Fadillah Yusof.

Has anyone explained to these greedy BN YBs that it is a highly corrupt conflict of interest for elected MPs to be involved in any way in companies that are receiving state contracts and lands that have been taken from their own constituencies!?

Durayield Sdn Bhd

And is it any surprise that another company, the similarly namedDurayield, has the same line up of Directors and Shareholders from the same two political crony families of Jabus and Yusofs?

Durayield has a big share of a huge timber concession called Sarako, so look who owns the company.  Once again it is Jabu’s nephew state assemblyman, Robert Lawson Chuat, and his brother, the longhouse headman Richard Mulok Entring.

Nice fat timber concession to keep the DCM’s family happy. Next put them into key jobs as YBs and headmen. Next tell the longhouse folk they will be reported if they speak to the opposition!

There is one other major shareholder, a company called Jarenang Sdn Bhd.  Interested to know who owns that?

Hard working loggers? – Jabu’s wife and son

It turns out that Mrs Jabu and her son Gerald are the owners!  And what about the rest of this lucrative timber concession?  Well it turns out that a nice chunk of shares has been handed out to each of Jabu’s family members and also to Bustari Yusof, brother of MP Fadillah Yusof!

Millions of ringgit worth of timber money from this 36,000 hectare concession have gone to the Jabus. What have their constituents got?

And guess who owns a Obyu Holdings?  None other than the same favourite political and business partners of the Jabus, the Bustari family!

Taib nominees? The Bustari family have a nice chunk of this timber concession!

Jabu is fond of lecturing longhouse folk to beware of the opposition.  Perhaps it is time for them to realise that they should beware instead of their wealthy YBs.  Because once a politician has started stealing from their people they will always come back for more!

More land grabs for the Jabus

Which is why it is no surprise that many more plantations have fallen into the hands of the wealthy family of Alfred Jabu and why it is no surprise that the ordinary people have received so few dividends from the oil palm cooperative SALCRA, which is managed by Jabu.

They should consider the huge lands handed in Limbang to the company Utahol Sdn Bhd.    The opposition leader and human rights lawyer, Baru Bian, is fighting a land grab case for his people there.

This time it is Jabu’s son who has charge of the plantation!

The plantation was originally handed to Jabu’s own son, Gerald Rentap Jabu and then, once again, was passed on to the control of WTK.  Look who owns Utahol.

More for the Jabus – this time a vast plantation taken from NCR land in Limbang, where they still have juicy shares

And then of course lucky Gerald Rentap managed to catch the state government’s eye with the grant of yet another massive plantation under the company Herba Aromatics.  Once again this company has taken lands right from under the noses of the Jabu family’s own people in Betong!

More of Jabu’s constituents land is handed over to his son!

If Jabu once set out to represent his people’s interests, it is clear that greed has now got the better of him!

Tintingmas Sdn Bhd

Gerald Jabus’ CV describes him as an experienced land and property developer and as a former licensed dealer in Sarawak Securities (the Taib company that got the only stockbroker’s licence in Sarawak).  He has of course also managed to benefit from big state contracts, despite the obvious conflicts of interest!

RM63million in state contracts!

He and another Jabu family member have picked up over RM63million in contracts through the company Tintingmas Sdn Bhd.

Javel Engineering Sdn Bhd 

The Jabus’ business and political partners, the Yusuf family have also done staggeringly well out of contracts handed to another company they own called Javel engineering!

Over RM300million in contracts for Javel Engineering owned by the Bustari family – so close to Taib Mahmud!

The message comes loud and clear, it is very lucrative to take Taib’s offer to become a BN flunky!  But, if this is the sort of money being made by flunky MPs, how much do we reckon is going to Taib and his family?

And why is it that these greedy men who have abused their positions to get contracts have found fit to spare nothing for the local people whom they pretend to represent?

Billy Abit Joo – 

Likewise, Federal MP Billy Abit Joo has not just contented himself with massive timber concessions and stealing control of his local people’s ‘cooperative’ Wargana Consortium. he too has set up a company to take fat state contracts, despite the corrupted conflict of interest this represents.

Company Director and MP all at the same time! – ready to receive fat state contracts of course..

Sure enough Sarabrand Sdn Bhd has received a goodly amount of contracts handed out by the state under the guise of ‘bringing development to the people’.

Over RM35million in state contracts for Billy’s company

No wonder Billy Abit Joo says he wants to hang on as the MP for the Bakun area.  He must surely be having his eye on so many more contracts that will be branded as ‘helping his people benefit’ from the dam!

  1. DAYAK & TRIBAL PEOPLE WILL TAKE BACK THEIR LAND

    Everyone has a boiling point. This boiling point has been seen in recent burning of logging and oil palm companies equipment.

    It is just a matter of time for the jungle fires to ignite….

    Have faith in the oppressed people for they will inherit the earth…

  2. What a disgusting laugh isn’t it ?

    J-This cock looks isn’t nice enough.
    N-What?
    J-Not strong enough?
    T-How about mine then?
    – Screamed and gave a hoofing laughter.
    All – A pretended smile.
    G-But in his mind …. not vigra, I need tongkat ali all along. I must be losing out to them then.

    The picture did not compose truly a jovial laughing matter. Saw the big dog he just displayed the snarling teeth only; a monkey clapping his hands; and a donkey just joined in with a hi-ho laugh. The rest remained silent observing with seriousness on the about to start “miring” ceremony. Aren’t they dirty?

  3. All NCR landowners and the rural folks should sit in at the CM office as well as the Land and Survey Director office to demand ownership rights to their own land. Grow the group and rally. and keep on protesting until all provisional land lease given to cronies were withdrawn on NCR land and all proposed hydro dams scrapped.

  5. THE YBs HAVE FOUND THE POOR EASY TO CHEAT BECAUSE THEY DESIRE CHANGE LIKE ALL OF US

    This Sarawak Report is basically about one big con job which began when Sabah and Sarawak were conned into Malaysia by the British colonialists and UMNO regime.

    “Malaysia” was a neo-colonial concept originally designed to preserve the British post war colonial control and exploitation of our resources. However, this was not longer tenable with the upsurges of local independence movements. Their best plan was to handover the power and control to their appointed successors UMNO in 1963 which soon became the real masters and overlords of the 2 Borneo colonies.

    The UMNO power elite perfected their modus operandi of enriching themselves through grand development projects which were sub-contracted to their proxy companies and cronies for huge amounts of money in total breach of the people’s trust.

    Using independence and development as a con they convinced the people (and coupled with electoral frauds) to vote them into power so they could carry out their grand development plans like the NEP FELDA SALCRA and many more projects to create multi-billion dollar plans and divert these funds to their own bank account.

    This abuse of power behaviour was adopted by the Sabah and Sarawak power elites when they were installed in power by the Malayan colonial elite who used them as their proxies for their domination of and plunder of Sabah and Sarawak.

    “Malaysia” has effectively come to mean the UMNO theft of Sabah and Sarawak independence with the “independence in Malaysia” scheme and theft of their resources beginning with the rape of their oil and gas fields.

    The new Malayan colonial rulers proceeded to grab land under various agricultural projects again playing on the people’s desire for economic advancements. So they have managed to con the people for 49 years and take out Sabah and Sarawak wealth to “develop” Malaya and their pockets.

    However this gambit is wearing thin as seen in the increasing incidence of poor dispossessed NCR people who are beginning to take mass action against land grabs, logging and oil palm companies.

    There is a tendency for some readers (presumably more educated than the poor ulu people) to look down on them and call them “stupid” for losing their land and yet continuing to vote for the con men.

    Those who should be blamed are these totally evil “leaders” who misused and abuse the people’s trust and use the land to enrich themselves by stripping the timber and selling the land for huge profits or start schemes on the land from which they would reap the major share of income.

    The Penans have been the pioneers of mass struggle as they were among the first affected by land grabs. They were the weakest groups and least organized prior to the involvement of people like Bruno Manser and local NGOs.

    The Malayan regime and their local proxies have themselves lit fire of popular anti-UMNO BN anger and resistance in Sabah and Sarawak better than the independence movement which opposed the British Malaysia creation for the very reason they would re-colonized and looted by the new colonial masters.

    • “…THE YBs HAVE FOUND THE POOR EASY TO CHEAT BECAUSE THEY DESIRE CHANGE LIKE ALL OF US…”

      What is that supposed to mean? Abg Jo loves to say “knowledge is power”. What is true the converse is also right ….no knowledge no power. So what absolutely qualfies knowledge or power?

      No use crying over spilt milk now Bro!

      You were not there but you are here now. Maybe our children and grandchildren can remember us kindly.

      Last time the Brits were physically here. Now they and the Yanks and Russians and China don’t have to be here in our parliament. Malaysians can do the job for them. Last time nobody believed Azahari and Sukarno but they’re gone now.

      The list of evidence is growing and it’ll be needed when necessary – to inform now and to be used later.

      But I like the picture used in the article. Taib is laughing his head off and Najib and George are no less tickled.

      Wonder what Jabu actually did or said that made him a hilarious Dayak!

        “Last time nobody believed Azahari and Sukarno…….”

        BUT this time round the Dayaks have learned and will not be fighting on the same side of the oppressors….

        So don’t count your chickens before they are hatched.

        We will smash Malaysia!

        • Won even bet a single cents that the Dayaks will vote againts BN….

          The Dayaks votes….Iban in particular can be bought with some cheap alchohol and tuak! Good examples were last election……Ibans were 99% behind BN!

  6. To change the government, Sarawakians have to change first. These crooks are here, because we allowed them to infest the system.
    If Sarawakians just talk and complain , these crooks will be haging around for a few more decades until all the land are grabbed by the cronies.
    These crooks will be gone, if deep down inside we really want them to go.

  7. Pakatan and NGOs must kick start their roadshows in the constituencies of all the corrupted BN lawmakers and YBs, informing the poor, marginalised and cheated rural folks how corrupted and filthy rich their YBs and families are. Show them the concessions, contracts, projects and the companies which belong to all these thieves. All BN YBs corrupted ventures must be exposed and they must be uprooted and prosecuted along with the paramount thief minister, Taib Mahmud. The dams projects, the world’s largest halal hubs, the smelting plants, the core projects underlined in SCORE are all for one person and his family, Taib Mahmud himself and his partner in crime, Najib Tun Razak.

    Few hundred thousand hectares of forest will go and along with it the high valued timber which will be profited by the thief minister.All infrastructure projects, housings for the displaced rural Dayaks and construction workers , logistics and support facilities for investors are awarded to the thief minister’s group of companies and cronies. The main players and beneficiaries are CMS, PN construction, Naim Cendera, Hock Seng Lee, KKB and Titanium.The entire SCORE projects will generate more than RM600 billion for the thief minister in the next 10 to 15 years.

    What are your worth and benefits when you join PBB, SPDP, SUPP and PRS as members even if some YBs have paid for your membership subscriptions. You will still be fighting among yourself to supply stationeries, T-shirts, fertilizers, and some Class F projects subcontracted to you by your BN YBs. Wake up and stand united as true Sarawakians to get rid of all these corrupted YBs and thieves.

    Vote out the highly corrupted, abusive, repressive and oppressive UMNO controlled BN government. Vote for CHANGE now.

    God bless all Malaysians.

      • I like to share a story about some very wise senior citizens. I am talking about my mother, a 71 years old retired school teacher. During the last Sarawak State Election, she and 6 of her senior citizen friends and tai chi buddies were invited by SUPP to BN 1Malaysia dinner at the Pullman Hotel. They attended three dinners in a row and according to my mother it was very crowded and well attended. They not only received RM150 on each of the three nights but also came home with Tupper wares and one of her friends also won a pensonic rice cooker during the lucky draws. When I asked her if the dinner had influenced her to vote for BN, she was laughing out loud and told me that she and none of senior citizen friends voted for BN. they had voted for Pakatan of course.hahahaha BN should never underestimated these senior citizens and treated them like they were hungry ghosts.
