Malaysian timber tycoons working with China in Solomon Islands betrayed by their Sibu,Sarawak Communist Party China antecedents
by Ganesh Sahathevan
The Google translated story below from Sina.com tells of Hii Yii Ging, Consul of Malaysia in Solomon Islands leading a delegation to China in 2018.The delegation included Lawrence Wong, Chairman of Solomon Timber Union.
ABC 4 Corners has provided details of how Malaysian and Chinese timber companies have taken control of Solomon Islands. It is not unlikely that the Malaysian timber companies are acting as Chinese Trojan Horses.
To understand why one has only to look at the Sibu, Sarawak, antecedents of the Malaysian timber men active in Solomons.
Sibu was the epicentre of Communist Party China sponsored acts of terrorism in the 1960s and 1970s, and the CPC had the support of a number of well known, wealthy local Chinese timber tycoons. In the early 70s the Malaysian Government executed Operation Judas, in which many of the Sibu tycoons were arrested. They were released from detention only after they agreed to renounce their CPC leanings.
That they did so at that point was not surprising. They faced the loss of their wealth and were made to clean toilets with toothbrushes presumably as a foretaste of what a life in poverty could mean.
50 years later Solomon Islands may well provide an avenue to further the CPC cause, denied them in Malaysia.
