Lynas Issue by Dr. HW Looi >>>

What if the waste is not sent abroad? MCA will pull out from BN?

Verbal objection without action is a political stunt, MCA must pull out from BN if Lynas is giving a license to operate without the need to send its waste to overseas.

Do you think MCA who is living under the UMNO’s sarung is dare to revolt and pull out from BN?

MCA against Lynas plant if no guarantee waste is sent abroad

By LOH FOON FONG and ONG HAN SEAN

KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA will strongly oppose the issuing of an operating licence to the Lynas rare earth refinery project if the company cannot guarantee the waste is taken out of the country.

MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said that, after much deliberation during the MCA presidential council meeting, the top party leaders had decided that they would convey the decision to the Cabinet and the National Economic Council.

“As long as they (Lynas) cannot fulfil this condition, MCA will object to Lynas getting its operating licence,” he said after the meeting on Tuesday.

Dr Chua said that earlier, MCA had said that it would not support the Lynas project if there was scientific evidence to show that it would be harmful to the people and the environment.

“But like all other issues in this country, it has been hijacked by DAP and Pakatan Rakyat. It has been politicised to such an extent that everyone in Pahang and the nation think that this project should be condemned,” he said.

Dr Chua was also disappointed that DAP had back-peddled on its decision to have the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) to hear the issue.

On Feb 26, DAP Kepong MP Tan Seng Giaw had openly said that the Parliament should set up a PSC to hear the case on Lynas but DAP Bagan MP Lim Guan Eng had said that DAP would not participate in the hearing.

Dr Chua said that he was briefed by experts that the radioactive material in rare earth was minute and even PAS Hulu Langat MP Dr Che Rosli Che Mat had said that the plant was not dangerous.

In Kuantan, Lynas Malaysia Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Mashal Ahmad said the rare earth refinery was 97% complete; and ready to begin operations in three weeks’ time.

The only hiccup was the temporary operating license by the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB).

“The licence has been approved but we have yet to receive it. Lynas has already fulfilled all the conditions stipulated for the licence to be issued.

“We hope it can be issued very soon because we need to start operations,” Mashal told reporters at the plant in Gebeng here on Tuesday.

He added that it would take one month just to import the rare earth raw material and it could not be brought into Malaysia without the licence.

On the PSC to look into the issues surrounding the plant, Mashal said it was welcomed.

“We are looking forward to be called up to give our explanations. The faster, the better,” he said.

I just got this update from a friend on this issue:

廖中莱每次引述内阁言论自爽
李健聪不信稀土废料运离大马

虽然中文报章今日引述马华署理总会长廖中莱指称内阁认同将莱纳斯稀土厂废料运离大马,不过人民公正党彭亨州州委李健聪却怀疑廖中莱的公信力,并促请内阁确认这个立场,以免再次发生有人“自讲自爽”的事情。

每次证明廖一厢情愿

李健聪也是绿色盛会宣传主任,他发文告表示,廖中莱之前多次信誓旦旦承诺莱纳斯稀土厂的废料将运回澳洲,但是最后证明只是其一厢情愿的立场。

“廖中莱曾经说过,内阁周三认同把稀土厂废料运返澳洲,而政府将正式致函澳洲,表达要求该国回收稀土厂废料的立场。但是,廖中莱至今没有告诉人民,这封信到底何时寄出、有没有回复,而回复的答案是什么?”

马被迫接收稀土废料

李健聪也质疑,这些辐射废料如果不能够运回澳洲,那么马来西亚是否强制需要接收这些辐射废料。

“我真的想不到,除了马来西亚,世界上还有哪一寸的土地,愿意收容这些半衰期长达140亿年的辐射性废料?而且,如果运出国的话,这一切的程序能否完全符合国际的条规与公约,以及是否有违国际正义问题?”

先知先觉劝莱纳斯?

另外,李健聪质问,廖中莱凭什么科学根据认为莱纳斯“根本不可能在国内找到适合的废料储存点”。

“当莱纳斯呈交的辐射影响报告、废料长期管理报告以及最近的国会特委会报告都阐明一旦该废料不能再循环,将在彭亨州境内觅得一处永久埋毒槽来长期弃置辐射废料时,廖中莱竟然可以先知先觉,‘劝告’莱纳斯不要浪费时间寻找这个地点?”

“是不是当辐射废料最终真的在我国落户时,廖中莱将一力承担处理这些每年数以万吨的辐射废料?”

李健聪认为,人民的这一切疑窦,只有廖中莱可以回答。他希望廖中莱这一次不要顾左右而言他,直接切坦率地告诉人民到底他对于稀土厂的立场是什么!

nkkhoo, you should stay away from politics and focus on promoting Muar to tourists.

politics anger and can bring misery to you.

Promoting muar tourism is a charity work !

According to this article, MCA is relinquishing its grip in key business to Umno?

nkkhoo says:

MCA, UMNO and MIC are the corrupt gang, make no difference for them to swap the ministerial portfolios among the gang.

Akshay says:

see you at bersih 3.0

don’t hide your face or wear that cowboy hat.

we got common mission to make Msia a better place.

nkkhoo says:

I decided to keep away from Bersih 3.0 after uninvited Himpunan Hijau messing out the noble goals of Bersih 3.0.

Azmeer says:

The 2 event are not mutually exclusive, you could be the 1% who do not see it this way.

Anyway, did you know that actor Rosyham Nor stormed into the set (pre planned?) of Mania live show on Astro Ria last nite, with a group of children protesting ‘Jangan Ambil Padang Kami’? Sad to see stablished actor like him is using children to protest. Wonder why he is not charged for disturbing public order on live TV. Probbly it is pre-planned with political agenda and the host Aznil even asked the audience to applaud and suport the cause!

nkkhoo says:

I personally support Lynas and nuclear energy from a bigger perspective.

Those support anti-Lynas should boycott iPad, iPhone, computers, GPS set, etc. because all these products are using rare earth.

PR and BN will oppose anything from other alliance at whatever cost regardless the rational and scientific reasons.

nkkhoo says:

The China Press did interview children below 12 before 709 rally last year with bias question against Bersih 2.0.

Children without mature thinking should not be dragged into any political disputes.

Papak says:

i think nkkhoo finally came to this true senses about Lynas. Radiation aside,the waste can pollute the river etc hence Aussie is smart do not want to take them back.
sometime i wonder if we can be easily duped by bn’s propaganda media like Lynas and even a ‘smart’ person like nkkhoo can fall into the scheme.

nkkhoo says:

I do better than BN in supporting Lynas, not BN brainwashes me.

MCA again showing that they are a no principle party, MCA should fully behind UMNO based on scientific facts.

Papak says:

MCA pull out in memory of Cheah Kok Leong ???
