KUCHING: The Unit For Other Religions (UNIFOR) will receive 10 to 15 per cent of the share from five quarries and one from forest (timber), said Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas.
Uggah stated that the aforementioned industries supporting UNIFOR are just a few of the efforts made by Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg to support Sarawak.
“The Premier hopes that with this, it will help UNIFOR generate income to its charitable trust fund,” he said.
When asked by reporters what was the expected revenue that will be generated, he said that he is yet to confirm an exact figure and said all of it is located in Sarawak.
He told this to reporters on Thursday (Nov 24) at the ‘Thank You Sir’ farewell dinner for UNIFOR Director Richard Lon held at Grand Margherita Hotel today.
Richard subsequently added that he believes other companies are joining in to support UNIFOR, but that this is still being discussed, so he could not provide any further details.
Richard will be transferred to the newly established Immigration and Labour Management Unit (ILMU).
In his address, Richard announced that he will begin his new post as the director of ILMU on December 1 of this year, and that the newly appointed director of UNIFOR will be Bintulu Resident Datuk Jack Aman Luat.
