From Bernama – 104 Malaysian Families In RM3 Billion Pulau Daat Project To Be Shifted

Dateline 2012-02-14:

A total of 104 families with Malaysian citizenship and permanent resident status will be provided with houses to enable the RM3 billion integrated oil and gas hub project to be implemented smoothly.

The 237 families living in Pulau Daat, an island earmarked for the project, have been compensated RM1,000 for each family, with half of them having left the island to look for dwelling elsewhere.

Not only the living will have to go, but the dead too have been relocated since May last year, with the help of the Labuan Religious Department (Jawi) which started a massive relocation of old graves, with some even having been there for more than 40 years, to the Sungai Labu Muslim Cemetery.

Most of those staying on the island are IM13 holders of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
