Gangster and illegal logging

Sarawak Chief Minister Pehin Seri Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Taib Mahmud had admitted ( that illegal loggers in the Land of Hornbill were/are employing gangsters as a shield from the authorities. This admission days after report that a Deputy Minister and veteran politician were being probed for involvement in gangsterism in their logging activites in Sarawak.

My Say:

Will we hear this in Sabah? So far only a handful of `mosquitos' had been dragged and charged in court for trespassing into forest reserve. And there is this story of Forestry Department workers brrning down houses belonging to natives because they were built on Forest Reserve. The department's director had admitted this but qualified that burning houses was provided for in ther law. So can we do the same to squatters houses build in aver nooks and corner of land available in urban areas. They are not even natives.
