KUCHING, May 22 — A Bill to restructure the Native Court that will raise it to be on par with the civil and Shariah courts will be tabled in the Sarawak State Assembly once the transformation master plan has been approved by the state Cabinet, Minister in the Premier’s Department (Native Laws and Customs) Datuk John Sikie Tayai said today.

He said the final report on the master plan had been approved by a steering committee chaired by Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah in September last year.

“At this juncture, we are now in the process of tabling the master plan to the state Cabinet for approval and implementation,” Sikie said in his winding speech in the Sarawak State Assembly.
