Honoured Chief Minister
Congratulation for your 62nd birthday!
For your birthday-celebration in Kuching on may 21, I like
to offer to your Excellency and to the public a parachute- jump
with the flags of Malaysia and of Sarawak.
I reiterate my apology from Hari Raya Haji for my illegal
stay in the state during the 1980's. Rather than staging protest,
I am looking forwards for constructive dialogue with your Excellency.
This can lead into concrete projects to help protect remaining virgin
forests - which serve also as an efficient protection from forest-fires
- and to help improve the living conditions of the Penan, if your
Excellency wishes to do so.
As proof of my sincerity, I will bring a cheque over US$
10'000 to start a Mobile Dental Clinic for the Penan and Kelabit
- if your Ministry of Health is in favour of the proposal, and I
also offer to look for the necessary additional funds.
May I remain with the wish to see again my Penanfriend Maleng
Tewai in Long Napir, who lost a leg in an accident, to bring him
My vision is in fact, to visit the Penan in the Ulu together
with your Excellency as a friend.
The white lamb "Gumperli", symbol for peace, is in good
health and remains a gift for you and your wife. It will be sent
to you as soon as we receive a positive reply from your side.
My humble person can just offer a chance where all parties
can win and smile - the decisions rest fully with you.
