Upon the arrest, all the other protesters asked to be arrested as well. A police officer fired a shot in the air to stop the people’s action, said SAVE Rivers.

Three cars carrying some protestors are heading for Belaga, where the arrested Ngang Buling has been brought by police.

Is there no end to the greed of those responsible for building these dams which are responsible for the displacement of these natives?

Illegals (in Sabah) tak arrest.
