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


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.

KKK says:

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 !

nkkhoo says:

A politician job is worst than prostitute…

Azmeer says:

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 ???
