Dear Sirs:

I am very concerned about MTCC's certification of the Samling Plywood company for management of the Sela'an-Linau Forest.

As an environmentally conscious consumer, I appreciate Malaysia's commitment to certify sustainably managed forests and forest products. But according to independent reports, MTCC's certification does not guarantee that all timber products are harvested legally, sustainably, and with respect for the rights and lands of indigenous peoples. As currently practiced, I believe MTCC certification should not be recognized on the world market.

I am writing in support of the Penan people and Sarawak NGOs who are protesting the certification awarded to Samling for the Sela'an-Linau Forest Mangement Unit. Since the Penan claim Native Customary Rights in the Sela'an-Linau Forest, all logging must be halted while their court case is pending.

Finally, I urge MTCC to adopt the Forest Stewardship Council's policy of respecting indigenous peoples' land rights.

Thank you for your attention to this matter of concern not only to Malaysia but to the world.

Sincerely,
