Helpless victims of merciless sex predators

By MalaysiaKini

The Penan community is mystified with the slow reaction by the authorities, especially the police, in taking action against the sexual abuse, including rape of the Penan girl, as identified by a national task force.

The Penan elders fear that the government will conveniently let the matter to rest while the Penan girls continue to face violations regularly.

The report by the Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development, was compiled by a high-level task force, comprising government officials, a police representative and women’s groups and released on Sept 8, almost eight months after the fact-finding mission was undertaken in Penan villages in Baram.

The report confirmed that sexual harassment and exploitation by timber camp workers had indeed taken place and indentified several cases in the report.

Since the release of the report, much has been said by the government to support the Penan victims and their family members but more significantly the police have not made any arrests so far.

In a recent Malaysiakini visit to Ulu Baram, many Penan leaders expressed disappointment with the police’s lack of teeth in catching the culprits.


  1. This is the age of Rape. Everything is raped. Penan are raped. Jungles are raped. Lands are raped. Rivers are raped. Sand are raped. 1975-1995 5% (RM2.71 billions/annum) oil royalty raped. Business are raped. Ferry services all over S’wak are raped. Governments properties in urbans alike land around Batu Lintang area are raped. State complex at Simpang Tiga n Training Centre are raped. On n on raping is rampant in Sarawak. The biggest rapist is who other than Taib, Jabu, Chan n all their affiliates alike CMS, Naim Cendera, Pelita, Rimbunan Hijau, Shin Yang, KTS, HSL, etc..etc…etc

    So what do we have to with all these rapists. Well, Penans must sumpit them to death. When election comes rakyat must voted all these rapists n then only the age of Rape will go. The Age of Rakyat then evolve. The Age of Ketuanan Rakyat will evolve. The Merdeka Age will evolve. The age of rape gone the the Apes (orang utan) will get their homeland back. Jungles will be conserved for them.

    • I agreed.
      This is the age of rape.
      You left out one thing;
      Saiful was also raped.

      • Saiful’s case is now in the Courts. He has to prove his case. If you knew for a fact he was, you are an accomplice in the act if you don’t present yourself in court. The contention in the case is the incident(s) was a fake. There is now a record in HornbillUnleashed of your comment which you willfully made.

        Pak Lah and KJ have been said to be in the know of the the Military Intelligence about Altantuya’s murder. Raja Petra said so in his SD and he still wants to appear in court to substantiate his statements.

        And if Pak Lah and Khairy Jamaluddin do not present themselves in Court, they are, whilst having information and withholding it, accomplices in the in the act.

        And you may then not have an idol to worship!

        Smile, candid camera is on you! 😀

      • HU Admin,

        I think you got the wrong idea. Khalid of Selangor has just announced he will legislate FOI and you want to censor, KF Gay?! Come on! Give the bugger a break.

        Unchallenged how will PR fare later? Like the stinking PBB and UMNO-DUMNO???

  3. Goto Rainforest Music Festival 9 – 11 July and sell the reports to cover printing costs! When you covered it, give it away PERCUMA !!!

    PDRM sent a EuroCopter there to manage crowds presumably but like the French tub, it dropped!

  4. The world is always a scene of the survival of the fittest. Bigger creatures eat up smaller creatures. The biggest brother commands the rest of his siblings. Big and powerful political party control the smaller ones. Powerful Lord bullies the humble serfs. The list will go on and on. The Penans are the worst victims of this perennial rule.

    But those selfless people with moral conscience will forever fight to correct this traditional mischief. But as always, they are running an uphill kind of battle. More often than not they lose the battle but the beauty is, they never give up. It is because they know what they are doing and they know what they are doing is right.

      In the end,the people you are trying to help will still vote for BN.
      That’s the reality in Sarawak.
