Stories from Upper Baram Pt 1: The SLAPP Stops Here

Two years after filing a defamation lawsuit against Indigenous grassroots organisation SAVE Rivers, the logging company Samling withdrew the case with a joint agreement between both parties. Initially headed to the Miri High Court for trial on Monday, 18th September, the case was cancelled after a last minute settlement. We spoke to the lawyer representing SAVE RIVERS, Simon Siah, about the history of the case, and what this joint agreement means for both parties moving forward. We also caught up with Jettie Word, the Executive Director of The Borneo Project, to discuss the local and global support and campaigns that were launched in solidarity with SAVE RIVERS.
