Its God's Wrath: Today God Reminds Barisan Nasional Leaders by Sending the Worst Environmental Catastrophic to Batang Rejang. Next or latest by Mid Of Next Year, God Will Sends them Out Of PETRA JAYA!
In its 2008 Audit Report, the Auditor General observed that forestry management in Sarawak as "unsatisfactory".
The audit found that the permanent forest reserves had not been replaced while some proposed forest reserves had not yet been gazetted. There was also no compulsory requirement for all logging license holders to obtain approved environment impact assessment reports before proceeding. Annual cut rates had been exceeded, if all forests were taken into account.
It noted that poor enforcement and monitoring had led to illegal logging and contributed to environmental degradation, especially river pollution, erosion, landslides, mud deposits and floods.
But instead of taking positive action, Sarawak's Second Minister of Planning and Resource Management Awang Tengah Ali Hassan (the First Minister is long-serving Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud) expressed unhappiness with the report. He said it did not reflect the overall situation as the auditors made random conclusions about the long-term management of the state's forests.
"By taking the feedback of the Sarawak Forestry Department, I believe a more balanced and accurate perspective (on the state's forest management) will be registered," he was reported as saying by national news agency Bernama.
Awang Tengah further said that the auditor-general's department did not have the forestry management expertise, and information by the state forestry department was not taken into account in the audit report. He said the auditor-general had written to him on Oct. 29, 2009, and had agreed to take into account feedback from the forestry department., thus no action had been taken by the state to correct the observation made by the Auditor General Department.
Awang Tengah can cheat the people but not God.
About two years later. on Friday, 8th October 2010, Batang Rajang was blocked by debris for as long as 50km stretch. Batang Rejang the only mean of transportation between Kapit and Sibu was totally cut-off from the outside world. The situation had not only affected the life of the longhouse folks who live along the river but also badly affected the business of the timber tycoons in Sibu. According to the reliable sources, many of the timber tycoon had lost their logs in the disaster
For what had happened in Batang Rejang, I strongly believed that they were wrath from God Almighty, punishment for the Ibans in Batang Rejang for blindly supporting Barisan Nasional, to the timber tycoons for ransacking the forest in Sarawak particularly in Baleh Kapit indiscriminately, and to the Barisan Nasional politicians especially James Masing and Billy Abit Joo for abetting Taib Mahmud in giving away the timber licenses to the Timber Tycoons.
James Masing can point all of his fingers to every timber tycoons in Sarawak but the bottom line is, Kapit is under his constituency therefore his responsibilities. To James Masing, Bukittunggal has this to say ;
"Please close your big mouth because the longer and wider you open it, the more bad things and stinks will come of it" , and STOP finger pointing, as finger pointing means, while one finger is pointing to others, the other three fingers are pointing at you!" .
