Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr George Chan Hong Nam said, “. . . rural areas in Sarawak are far behind the other states in terms of even the most basic facilities.”
Thanks for being frank, at last, Minister. Now, can you explain how that has come about while you and the Taib Mahmud dynasty are wealthier and wealthier? All the timber wealth that have been extracted from the land for over two and a half decades could have gone into building the most basic infrastructure for the people. Where did the wealth go - Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Swiss Bank?
