A disgraceful incident in Sarawak

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as a protest regarding the recent arrest of 15 indigenous Sarawakians for no apparent reason than that other than freedom of speech regarding a proposed building of hydro electric dams in their community and surrounding area.

I lived in Borneo for a period of 3 years and am deeply troubled by this incident. Many Australians are also outrages by such an incident.

I absolutely condemn and protest against the unlawful arrest and urge you to do everything in your power to conduct a full scale and fair investigation

Such events will only add another ugly blot to Malaysian's human rights and environmental record, which has been stated by the government in previous years it has been eager to improve on many occasions.

Yours sincerely

Zan King
