No word from Lynas on location of permanent disposal facility, says Pahang MB
Wan Rosdy said the Pahang state government has not discussed with Lynas pertaining to the location of its permanent disposal facility
KUANTAN, Aug 19 — The rare earth processing company Lynas Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Lynas) has yet to submit a formal application on the specific location of the Permanent Disposal Facility for its Water Leached Purification (WLP) residue in the state.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said so far, the state government never discussed with Lynas pertaining to PDF, as one of the conditions following the Cabinet decision to renew Lynas' licence for another six months effective Sept 3.
“If there is a discussion or application, the priority of the state government will be the people’s safety. That part we are very clear.
“..at the same time, this also involves the investment aspect as Lynas has invested up to billions in the country. We will look into all aspects of this issue. We want to hear experts opinions. If experts say Lynas is safe, then we will focus.
“If not the experts, who else do we want to listen to? We are not experts in this area. It is certain that the state government will not do anything that is harmful to the people,” he said at the Pahang State Assembly sitting here today.
Mahathir has stated that he would believe the 'experts' rather than voices of protest in the public. His 'experts' are the blokes working in Lynas, wakakaka.
