GEORGE TOWN, Dec 29 — The proposed Penang South Reclamation (PSR) project is located far from the country’s maritime border with Indonesia, state executive councillor Chow Kon Yeow said today.
The local government committee chairman said a map from the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency’s website shows this clearly.
“The proposed PSR project is located at a very shallow area of less than -3.5m CD (depth) on the continental shelf of Malaysia and it is well within the three nautical miles radius from the existing shoreline of Penang Island ’s south coast,” he told a press conference held at Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s office in Komtar today.
He added that there is also no possibility of the project shifting the continental shelf and encroaching into maritime international border.
He said reclamation projects in Johor and Malacca are much closer to international waters.
Chow was responding to a statement by Environment and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Jaafar that the project could encroach into international waters and change the continental shelf.
Everyone who has been to school knows what is 'territorial waters', which means the Environment and Natural Resources Minister might not have, wakakaka. Dei, menteri balik sekolah lah.
With his piss-poor geography learning, he might of course have mistaken Singapore for Penang Island, wakakaka.
But his bullshit has not been meant for the general public but only for the 'converted', to appease his Heartland constituency that he is going to 'fix' the bloody DAP up kaukau.
OTOH, Wan Junaidi Jaafar might borrow a leaf out of the Election Commission's 'Book of Tricks' and abracadabra-alakzam-ali oop delineate Malaysian territorial waters shift to a nearer distance (at least temporarily) to Penang Island to make his humongous bullshit 'fake-valid'.
