Belaga’s renown campaigner against the Bakun Dam Bato Bagi has passed away in Sibu hospital just minutes ago. In his active days he had met the PM Badawi in Putrajaya but did not get satisfactory answer from the most powerful man in the country at that time. He went on to challenge the government all the way to Federal court-his appeal is still pending. But such was his determination to see to the end of injustice to his people in Naha Jalay, Ulu Belaga. His last public appearance was probably in a documentary about Bakun Dam.
His passing will be a great loss to his community as well as the world at large.
