Bakun Dam now in Sarawak hands

BAKUN: The 210m-high Bakun hydroelectric dam is now under the full control of Sarawak, which means the state government will take charge of power generation and supply statewide.

It became official after Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak travelled to the dam in central Sarawak for the handing-over ceremony in the presence of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg and Bakun community chiefs and villagers.
