JC Fong Book On NCR Land Belittled the Dayak Customs

Wednesday, 16th March 2011

I would like to suggest that Baru Bian debate with JC Foong instead of Taib Mahmud because he is the real devil behind Taib evil actions.

The books that belittled the dayak/Iban customs! It has no other motive other than to assist Taib in robbing dayak of their most precious assets the NCR Lands and to take their Dignities Away! 

If today the Ibans still practicsing  the head hunting custom our main enemy should be JC Foong. This is the real culprit behind Taib's NCR development policy that allows the state government to rob the Iban/Dayak of their NCR lands  in the name of development.
JC Fong on 14th March 2011 had launched his second book entitled Law On Native Customary Land in Sarawak. In his opening speech Fong belittled the dayak by saying that not every native custom is recognised by laws of Sarawak as the basis for creation of rights over land. He further added that the Tusun Tunggu and Adat Iban 1993 were not comprehensive, as they do not cover certain customs and practices of the Iban committee.
Fong  a former State Attorney General who lead a company that leaves S’wak RM2.5 billion poorer as its Chairman, had also urged the dayak/Iban communities to change the customary law and customs of the native community.
But who is JC Fong who dares to intefere with or belittle our customs? I am not the only person that is disturbed  by this "devil" . Baru Bian the PKR Sarawak leader when he was interviewed by Radio Free Sarawak (RFS)  rubbishes Fong as he is doubtful that the latter will present a truthful account of the hot-potato issue. An expert in his own right, Baru dismisses the credibility of Fong who holds on to the narrow interpretation of NCR that facilitates land-grabs in Taib’s government.
On the reasons why he wrote the book Fong explained that the purpose of the book is to set out clearly what the laws is and to provide a clear understanding on how the native customary law had evolved or developed since 1841. But if one ever follow his past record in representing the state government in legal battle against the NCR land owner one will be able to judge that his only motive is to help Taib Mahmud, his cronies and family members to rob Iban/Dayak of their most precious asset that is their NCR Land .
Some of the cases  that he appeared for state government against the NCR land owners  were  Nor Anak Nyawai, TR Masa Vs Pelita, and many more cases.
Surprisingly to note where are all the Iban/Dayak ministers ? Where are their guts. These ministers Jabu, Masing and Mawan what have they done to protect our NCR lands from Fong's blatant lies ? Are we that weak ? Remember what did Jabu said when Hji Hadi belittled the dayak with his popular remark "cawat" ? Even though Haji Hadi remarks were only meant to describe the dayak backward mentality but he was cornered left and right by those dayak three stooges. Which one is more serious is it Haji hadi cawat remark or Taib actions in robbing the dayak/Iban of our NCR lands.
In sarawak, we dayaks are the majority. To protect our assets and dignities from Taib Mahmud we must stand up and unite. Forget about Iban, Bidayuh, Orang Ulu and Penan. We must fight as a dayak. Under BN rules we have so many political parties and ministers but what they have done to safeguard us from Devil Taib Mahmud and his Lucifer Fong? True enough we just cannot rely on them because they only know how to fill their own pockets.
There fore today, I am calling all the dayaks  out there to get united and defend our rights from many more JC Fong alike.
Lets United under SNAP!

SNAP's Media Statement & List Of First 17 Candidates

For immediate release

Date: 15 March 2011


Sarawak National Party (SNAP) has always been, since the inception of Malaysia 47 years ago, the party that speaks out, defends and fights for the welfare of the people of Sarawak especially the interior native population. It must be reiterated that SNAP will remain so now, and in the future, in response to the popular requests and desires of the people of Sarawak. SNAP is synonymous with the political development of Sarawak and intends to play its role in positive nation building within the ambit of the Federation of Malaysia Agreement 1963. SNAP it should be remembered was one of the political parties which were signatories to the Malaysia Agreement.

The forthcoming state elections this year will be a watershed in the political history of Sarawak and it is imperative that SNAP, being the traditional party of choice among natives play a meaningful role in the shaping of Sarawak’s political future.

In this context, the Select Committee after being given the mandate by the Central Executive Committee (CEC) of SNAP met this weekend and agreed among other things that SNAP’s participation in these elections will reflect its historic role and its presently reignited dynamic role, as requested by our membership. Consequently SNAP has decided to put up a total of 40 candidates, 29 of which will be in interior native-majority constituencies and the rest will be in areas where natives form the largest single grouping.

To underscore our seriousness and commitment to the above, SNAP hereby announces our candidates for the first 16 seats.

They are as follows:

1. Stephen Sigar - N. 1 Opar

2. Frankie Jurem Nyumboi - N. 2 Tasik Biru

3. Richard @ Peter M. Munai - N. 16 Bengoh

4. Slyvester Belayong - N. 19 Kedup

5. Abang Othman Abang Hj Gom - N. 23 Lingga

6. Dan Giang - N. 25 Balai Ringgin

7. Joe Unggang - N. 31 Layar

8. Dayrell W. Entrie - N. 32 Bukit Saban

9. Anthony Liman Sujang - N. 34 Krian

10. Tedong Gunda @ Jamal Abdullah - N. 41 Pakan

11. Augustine Liom - N. 44 Machan

12. George Lagong - N. 56 Baleh

13. John Bampa - N. 57 Belaga

14. Johari Bujang - N. 62 Lambir

15. Edwin Dundang Bugak - N. 66 Marudi

16. Kebing Wan - N. 67 Telang Usan

The candidacies for the remaining 24 constituencies will only be finalized and announced at a later date. This is because SNAP feels that its present effort to invite other native leaders who are currently partyless or dispersed in other political parties to come back to contest under the SNAP banner in order to avoid the dilution of native votes in these constituencies, will bear positive results. The present aspiring SNAP candidates for these constituencies are willing to sacrifice and accommodate these native leaders as candidates in favour of the desire not to split native votes.

The Select Committee having decided on the above also reiterates that it is SNAP’s fervent desire that there will be throughout Sarawak one-to-one contests against the ruling coalition. Common wisdom tells us that it is wise not to split the anti-BN votes to ensure opposition victory.

SNAP does not see any problem towards an electoral understanding with the Democratic Action Party (DAP) of Sarawak. We are urged by our membership to go further than electoral pacts and work towards greater understanding and mutual support with the DAP. Our leadership has been and shall be meeting DAP leaders over these matters in due course.

We also do not see any problems in our relationship with Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS).

However, sadly, we have been informed that Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) has on its own initiative, and without mandate, took on the role of the leading opposition party by announcing that they intend to contest in 52 seats and leave SNAP a miserable 3 seats to squabble over. We also note that PKR has overlapping claims with the DAP. The very recent announcement by PKR that an agreement has been reached on the opposition electoral pact in Sarawak is totally inaccurate. PKR’s attempt to gloss over this major problem and ride roughshod against SNAP is unwarranted and unbecoming. There has been no agreement, no attempt to negotiate and PKR’s lackadaisical attitude towards native political issues is now becoming obvious.

We reiterate that such presumptuousness on the part of PKR is unwarranted and unmandated. We believe that PKR after reviewing its influence in Sarawak for the last 12 years should only concentrate in the mixed areas where we feel they can do better than SNAP. It is worthy of note that after 12 years and participating in 3 federal elections and 2 state elections over these years involving 74 candidates which they have put up, PKR has only managed to win 1 state seat. It is also a fact that can be verified that PKR has had little impact in native-majority areas ever since it first contested in Sarawak.

With that background, we hope that PKR will co-operate to ensure the opposition electoral pact will be a reality based on actual representation of the various political groupings. Its problems over overlapping seats with DAP should also be solved as fast as possible.

The above has been communicated to PKR in the various meetings but to no avail. It is sad that at this eleventh hour, PKR still insists on contesting in 52 seats at our expense, and without substantive grounds to support their insistence.

In this state elections of 2011, SNAP is taking back its rightful role as the leading opposition voice in Sarawak.

SNAP is conscious of its role and intends to fulfill it without reservation.

God bless the people of Sarawak.

Sarawak National Party (SNAP)
