The Consumers’ Association of Penang and Sahabat Alam Malaysia are very distressed by the tragedy that has taken place yesterday and early morning today in Penang.
Lim Mah Hui has expressed grave concern about the destruction of hill-land for property development in full view of the authorities.
We refer to the Sin Chew Daily report of 3 February 2013 (translated from Mandarin “For environment or for self interest? Yeo Yang Poh exposes ill intention of Penang organisation”). This report is on the public forum titled “Planning decisions and Appeal: Who speaks for the Public?” jointly organised by Penang Institute and Penang Forum.
Dr Lim Mah Hui urges the MPPP to engage more with the people and find ways to democratise the whole planning process.
