According to the Insolvency Department's figures for the last six years, starting from 2007 to April this year, Miri is ranked 15th for city with the most bankrupts. Neighboring cities Kuching and Sibu are ranked 12th and 18th.
At a recent bankruptcy seminar held in Kuching, it was mentioned that there "were" 13,000 bankrupts in the Sarawak, but it isn't clear on how many of those are within Miri, or whether they are now cleared of bankruptcy as past tense was used to describe the fact.
Financial ruin faced by bankrupts did not mean the end for them. They are not restricted in any way and can still borrow or travel abroad contrary to popular myth, but with a caveat - they need to inform the Insolvency Department so as to be given the chance to find a solution to their problems.
