Illegal squatters in Kundasang

There is a growing trend of people illegally planting crops on native land that does not belong to them or just occupying them because the land is vacant. Some of these illegal squatters even threatened land owners with parangs (machetes).

The authorities do not seem to do anything about them and in some cases, they appear to encourage these illegal activities which embolden the squatters.

If Sabah were to move forward into the 21st century, we need to let these people know (even if they are playing an ignorance game) that they are not above the law of the land and most important of all to those who are entrusted to uphold the law and carry out their duties accordingly. So, these squatters must be brought to justice. If the authorities do nothing, of course, these activities will continue and will get out of hand eventually.Do we want a Sabah where no one respects the law?
