Film Tribute To Ross Boyert

Watch video at Sarawak Report HERE

Boyert had regarded himself as a friend of the Taib family and said he met the Chief Minister and his late wife Laila on a number of occasions. He told us there was never any doubt that it was Taib who was in control of his family’s businesses. He told us that he had not realised until much later that the buildings had been bought out of illegal profits from deforestation.

However, he paid an enormous price for acting as a whistle-blower against the Taibs. They retaliated with a ruthless lawsuit that saw him bankrupted and left homeless and penniless. He and his wife Jonni also complained to Sarawak Report that they had suffered sustained intimidation during the course of that lawsuit, which left them unable to pick up the pieces of their life. Last October, a few weeks after he gave us his story, he was found dead in a rare form of suspected suicide with a bag taped around his head in an LA motel room.
