Groups call for timber company to withdraw suit against Save Rivers

PROMINENT environment groups are among 160 global civil society organisations that sent a letter of solidarity to timber company Samling, demanding it withdraw its suit against Sarawak green pact Save Rivers.

The groups, including Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, Rainforest Action Network, and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Netherlands, sent the letter yesterday as it marks one month before the May 15 trial begins at the Miri High Court.
