Land and Survey should physically go to site to verify NCR

JAMESJG.COM supports YB Mussem call for the revocation of timber licenses issued that encroached into Native Customary Rights (NCR) land. It will be better if the revocation can be done immediately by the agency to show that the government is serious in solving issues surrounding NCR.

The Land and Survey Dept. is often accused of not going to the site prior to giving their recommendation to the Forestry Dept, who issue this licenses.

JAMESJG.COM also seek the government to temporary freeze the issuance of timber licenses until NCR issues are solved. The current perimeter survey works is the first step to recognise NCR land, mostly owned by the native of Sarawak.
