Seems like I did the right thing by re-posting this stuff! Sarawak Report must really be reeling from this revelation. This was originally found in the Malay Messenger website.
THE MALAY MESSENGER
Kuala Lumpur – 1st May 2013
Our sister site, http://www.malaymessage.com, and a number of our blogs, were attacked by a DOS campaign, originating from London and the blogs had content removed – someone clearly can’t handle the truth – but we persevere…
Is the Sarawak Report for the people, or just some people?
We previously reported and blogged that the self-styled, self-important, champion for the native people of Sarawak, Clare Rewcastle Brown, had been conspiring with major criminal forgers and bank account hackers, whilst they were fugitives from the FBI and Canadian police, bringing into sharp question her ethics, credibility and honesty and now we question her motives.
MORE ON CLARE REWCASTLE BROWN
Clare Brown has vowed to bring down the duly elected government of Sarawak and its longest serving Chief Minister – we have to ask why, following the anonymous receipt of some correspondence seeming to indicate that there was personal interest in obtaining oil rights or related concessions. You will have the chance to read the material below and decide.
Clare Rewcastle Brown publically stated her interest was to save the oil “for the people” but suggests to Gordon (?) that there are major opportunities (for oil concessions) for those that help the opposition – Anwar and others, its widely reported Clare Brown and Anwar are close – so not really for the people, her real motivation seems obvious – to help herself and her friends.
You will see that alvinchongtax@gmail is instrumental in this revelation but we do not know who alvinchongtax@gmail is, but do not believe it to be our local tv star. Like him, we ask is this real and that you ask Clare Brown to answer or do we have further attacks on this site.
We suggest the following questions should be asked of Clare Brown.
Who is Gordon?
What major opportunity do they expect to get?.
Why would the opposition grant them oil rights?.
What campaign is Gordon (?) going to help with?.
Is Gordon (?) helping fund Anwar?.
Where is the benefit to the native people?.
How does the development of oil fit into their supposed environmental campaign, or is not convenient anymore?.

For interest? Is it real?

hope I haven’t put my foot in it, but it seems a friendly and reasonable request. We don’t want to look like fools when I bit of cooperation would make us look fine.

Meanwhile, there has been a very significant development in terms of Sarawak. They have discovered immense reserves of on-shore oil. We are already talking about billions discovered and it looks as if future discoveries could make little Brunei next door look like peanuts.
Malaysia has taken control of all the off-shore oil up to now and that has what has made it so rich the past decades, but the on-shore oil currently belongs to Sarawak itself and Taib and the Malaysians have clearly been keeping the whole thing as quiet as possible and are trying to carve out a deal that serves them both and once again cuts out the poor people of the state.
I am starting a campaign and the opposition people have today agreed my contention that this should be their main issue for the election that is coming up in a matter of a few weeks. Forget dams and timber, this is real hope for the people of Sarawak and its in danger of being snatched from them once more.
I think we need some heavy-weight advice on how to manage such a campaign if you have any thoughts? In the event of success i.e. a new government, this could means major opportunities for anyone who did step forward to help in the earlier stages.
