Tanjung Bungah tragedy – who’s to blame?

BFM interviews Anil Netto of Aliran/Penang Forum on the Tanjung Bungah landslide tragedy.

From BFM Radio:

Criticism of the Penang state government continues unabated following Saturday’s Tanjung Bungah landslide that has claimed 11 lives thus far. Civil society groups in Penang expressed disappointment over the alleged lackadaisical attitude of the Penang Government and elected representatives over the matter. A coalition of 20 NGOs known as Penang Forum had highlighted the issue on hillside developments since last year with the Penang Hills Watch initiative.

Today, we ask if the Penang state government responsible for the tragedy? And if their proposed “commission of inquiry” into the landslide will allow a broad investigation or will be narrowly focused. Listen to the podcast.
