The aim of Taib Timber Mafia report

Continued from Taib Timber Mafia and
“Stop Timber Corruption” Campaign

The aim of this report is to build up international pressure against the corrupt Taib family and provide investigating bodies, journalists, Sarawakians and interested parties with detailed evidence on the Taib financial empire. It aims to demonstrate the financial and political control that Taib has over Sarawak and provide profiles on the Chief Minister and his family members, all of whom have financially benefited from the destruction of Sarawak’s rainforest.

We believe our research is showing merely the tip of the iceberg as many family assets are likely to be hidden overseas or in offshore districts where information is virtually impossible to obtain. The Bruno Manser Fund is therefore calling on anti-corruption and anti-money-laundering authorities worldwide to investigate the Taib family’s business activities.

These assets should be frozen and restituted to the people of Sarawak, and the Taib family and their co-conspirators should be prosecuted for corruption, abuse of public funds, fraud, money laundering, tax evasion and other related crimes.
