Do Not Block Road, Belaga Police Tell Penans Near Murum Hydro Dam Project In Belaga

SIBU, Oct 22 (Bernama) -- Police here are appealing to Penans who have set up a road block at Sungai Seping near the entrance to the Murum hydro dam project in Belaga, to stop such activities.

District police chief DSP Bakar Sebau said action could be taken against them under Section 143 or 147 of the Criminal Procedure Code for illegal assembly or taking part in a riot.

"We will not hesitate to take action against those taking the law into their own hands by setting up the road block or those inciting others to carry out such action, if there was strong evidence.

It is best for them to sit with the government," he said.

He said this in an email received here Monday.

Bakar said the Penan in Murum should not allowed themselves to be made used of by certain non governmental organisations and individuals.
