PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Representatives of the Temiar community from Kelantan met Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Friday and were assured that the Prime Minister would help resolve problems associated with their customary land.

The 220 residents of 17 settlements in Gua Musang had come in five buses to seek the Prime Minister's help to find a solution to their customary land being encroached by several companies, and used for durian farms since Feb 18, so much so that they had to erect barricades to keep away the intruders.
