The People’s Armed Police
Brief narrative In April 2005, enforcement staff from the State Land and Survey Department, escorted by police, demolished dozens of houses in a squatter colony near Canada Hill, outside the centre of Miri. The houses had been built decades previously on State-owned land where commercial development had since been planned. The squatters were caught by surprise, as they had not received a clear and accurate eviction notice. The squatters were reportedly resettled 25 kilometres outside of town.
