KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The orang asli community in Peninsular Malaysia are equal in the eyes of the law and their ancestors were the first inhabitants of the nation, says P. Waytha Moorthy (pic).

The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department said the Malaysian superior courts had recognised and repeatedly reaffirmed their customary land rights due to, among other factors, the special position of the orang asli under Article 8(5)(c) of the Federal Constitution.
