MIRI: There are still too many unresolved cases pertaining to native customary rights (NCR) land disputes, some of which have been dragging on for 15 years, says Sarawak human rights activist cum lawyer Abun Sui.

Abun, who is Hulu Rajang PKR branch chief, held a meeting on Wednesday (Jan 16) with Murum native villagers who are angry that their cases have been dragging on in the civil courts and in the Native Court for years.
