Report on the Penan cases – is it out yet?Posted: December 13, 2008
Last month, on the 23rd of November to be exact, the StarOnline had THIS article:
A task force’s report on the alleged rape and abuse by loggers against Penan women and girls will be ready in December.
Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said the task force, led by her ministry’s director-general Datuk Dr Noorul Ainur Mohd Nur, visited the area in question.
It is now almost halfway into December. Considering that Parliament ends next week, I’m guessing that this report will not see time in Parliament.
I’m curious as to whether there will be news reports on this report. Will we know about the findings of the report?
I hope there are parties that are keeping the Ministry on their toes, so as this doesn’t get swept under the carpet and forgotten. If a report is due this month, then I hope that we all get to know what exactly they found out after carrying out investigations and visiting the area. And I hope we get to know by the end of this month.
