Sarawak moves on land for Baram dam

Malaysian Insider, 6 August: Sarawak will acquire some 4,000 hectares for the Baram hydroelectric project today after issuing a notice last week, although the proposed dam has not yet been assessed or approved.

A legal “direction” published in the Borneo Post last Friday said an area of 4090.8 hectares was “required for public purposes, namely for the development of a hydroelectric dam” and that all native customary rights over the area would be extinguished.
