    A STATE OF EMERGENCY WAS DECLARED TODAY (THURSDAY) IN SARAWAK OVER THE RETURN TO OFFICE OF CHIEF MINISTER DATO STEPHEN KALONG NINGKHAN. AT THE HEIGHT OF UNREST LAST YEAR NEARLY 10,000 CHINESE WERE REHABILITATED AS AN EMERGENCY MEASURE AND ON TUESDAY, INDONESIAN NEWSMEN WERE ABLE TO VISIT AND TALK TO SOME OF THEM.

    THE CHINESE ARE RESETTLED IN A CONTROLLED AREA ALONG THE KUCHING-SERIAN ROAD. NEARBY IS THE POLICE STATION ATTACKED IN JUNE LAST YEAR. ONE POLICE OFFICER DIED IN THE ATTACK - HE WAS THE BOTHER OF THE CHIEF MINISTER DATO NINGKHAN.

    ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT, LAST YEAR'S VIOLENCE WAS INSTIGATED BY LOCAL COMMUNISTS AND INDONESIAN INFILTRATORS WHO ATTACKED ISOLATED AREAS WHERE THE CHINESE WERE SETTLED.
