Village folk from 13 Kedayan-Malay kampungs in northern Sarawak, who are descendants of the Brunei Malays, are in dire straits after the entire population of 10,000 people from the 13 villages were issued an ultimatum to move out by Monday.
Miri Land and Survey Department claimed that those land are on provisional or temporary leases.On September 15, those villagers were served a letter to inform them to move out 14 days after the letter. Thus, if no one is helping the villagers by September 29, 2008 the bulldozers from the private developer will roll into the villagers and destroy their kampong!
