CM to meet Dayak leaders soon over ‘pemakai menoa’, ‘pulau galau’ ruling

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:02 AM

Some of the natives present at the Kuching Courthouse holding their banners in previous proceedings. File PhotoA meeting with Dayak leaders will soon be called to deliberate on the recent decision on ‘pemakai menoa’ and ‘pulau galau’ by the Federal Court.

This planned event is expected to take place after the new year holidays, according to a press statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office on Christmas Day.

“With reference to the recent decision on ‘pemakai menoa’ and ‘pulau galau’ of the Federal Court, the Chief Minister will call for a meeting with Dayak leaders after the new year holidays,” announced the statement.

However, no date was specified for the forthcoming meeting.

At present, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem is on a week-long working visit to Australia.

Last Tuesday, the Federal Court ruled that both ‘pemakai menoa’ and ‘pulau galau’ had no force of law in Sarawak.

In a three-to-one decision, the apex court allowed the appeal by the state government and set aside the orders of the Court of Appeal and High Court that recognised native customary right (NCR) over ‘pemakai menoa’ and ‘pulau galau’.

  1. Why complained about losing NCR lands when the Dayaks willingly sold their votes in every election in return for tong biru, atap and BRIM which are all election bribery.

  2. The Dayaks should work fast to solve these issue or else they will find them self walking with loincloths again

  3. I hope those Dayak leaders in the meeting will not be swayed by some feel good promises like those done prior to last election. How much and how many of those promises are delivered?
    I hope they will not be hypnotised by some well selected quotes from the bible which the CM use to melt the heart of some week minded Dayaks.
    CM must understand that Dayaks are not asking for the moon and the stars but only asking for what is rightfully owned by Dayaks well before the State of Sarawak even existed!
