DUN SARAWAK 10-19 NOV 2014: WRITTEN ANSWERS



QUESTIONS FROM BARU BIAN: 

6.      To  ask the Chief Minister and  Minister for Resource Planning and Environment:


(a)   What is the stand of the Sarawak Government on our participation in the Timber Legality Assurance System (TLAS) licensing system under the         Forest  Law  Enforcement,  Governance and  Trade,  Voluntary Partnership  Agreement  (FLEGT-VPA) between  Malaysia  and  the European Union? Is it true that Sarawak will not participate?


(b)   If so, what are the reasons?


 JAWAPAN:


For the  information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Ba'Kelalan, Sarawak Government has agreed that the proposed Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade -  Voluntary Partnership Agreement (FLEGT-VPA) between Malaysia and the European Union (EU) would be implemented on a  phased-approach (initially  applicable only to  Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah).  It would only apply to Sarawak when Sarawak is convinced that the  FLEGT VPA would  benefit  the  local timber  industry.  Nonetheless, Sarawak has its own Logs Legality Verification System (LVS).



Sarawak is still currently involved in the  negotiation with  the  European

Union together with Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah on the FLEGT-VPA. 



 7.     To ask the Chief Minister and Minister for Resource Planning and Environment:

 To provide a list of illegal logging cases investigated by Sarawak Forestry from    2010   to    2013  detailing   type    of    offence   committed,   parties investigated and charged, action taken against parties and current status of the cases.
