Robert Lau of SUPP is endorsing wastage of fund. While Tree Planting project is a noble intention, Robert Lau know shit about the environment. In fact, the entire Sarawak Barisan National know shit about the environment.

KTS who organized program is one of those big lumbering companies in central region of Sarawak to have raped and destroyed the jungle landscape in the upper reach of Rajang. Other wicked companies probably include Sanyan Group, Rimbunan Hijau, SamLing and others have cut trees by the millions at Rajang upriver and their act have caused uncontrolled soil erosion and heavy silting at Rajang River.

I wouldn't be surprise if vessel cannot call on Rajang Port in 5 years time if the situation is not improve.

Robert Lau is on a publicity campaign to portray his noble deed to replant trees in Sibu (by the way, Sibu is full of swamp and thus limited space of plant tree actually) and not bothering to study the real issues. The issues of upper Rajang being canablised by KTS, Sanyan, RH, Samling and other foochow timber companies. So why can't the YB go over to the jungle and replant the tree seedling there. By the way YB, don't worry ah, the jungle is botak so you can use helicopter to go there. No need to worry about thick jungle undergrowth.

KTS sponsored the event so that as a supporting actor, they might get an award also. Don't be fool. KTS is one of the culprit in the destruction of nature resources in Rajang delta. And their tree planting project in Sibu town is just a cover up to cloud the eyes of the rakyat.
