KUCHING: Sarawak Pakatan Harapan has urged assemblymen, including those from the ruling Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) coalition, not to support the Land Code (Amendment) Bill when it is tabled in the state legislature today, as it falls short of the native communities’ expectations.

Baru Bian (PKR-Ba’Kelalan) said the proposed amendments to recognise the concepts of pemakai menoa (territorial domain) and pulau galau (communal forest reserve) were “very disappointing”.
