Numpang Suntai of Sebuyau who had been charged for `criminal intimidation’ has been discharged today at the Simunjan magistrate court, with hundreds of villagers showing solidarity outside the court house. Numpang was represented by Baru Bian’s legal team, including See Chee How and Desmond Kho. The case started after the villagers erected blockade against the intrusion into their NCR land by a logging company related to Cm Taib Mahmud’s sister, last year. 7 persons were arrested subsequently on account of damages from a fire which took place after the blockade. Only Numpang was charged for criminal intimidation, which drew hundreds of supporters to the court hearings. The discharge of Numpang coud shows the lack of a solid case against the accused as well as that the prosecution could be standing on shaky ground after another court grant injunction to the same villagers who had disputed the loggers’ license to log in their NCR lands.
