I have only one question that makes any sense now!
Who are we going to charge in court for this latest act of manslaughter and environmental degradation?’ Datuk Dr Jacob George
Consumerist: Corruption & Cameron Highlands Tragedy!
It is shocking and it is a malicious crime of great proportions when powerful corrupted individuals and outsiders continue plundering the Cameron highlands landscape for their massive personal greed.
One would have thought that after the last tragedy which took several lives and caused economic loss, lessons would have been leant where political rhetoric and religious outbursts continues unabated giving perceptions of high morals and unfettered religious conviction but the truth is it is all a show of massive deception!
We have wolves in sheep’s clothing working hand in glove and as a result expect more similar disasters in the future!
The truth is – no sooner had Malaysians, Cameron folk in particular, gotten over last year’s flooding tragedy which killed four persons, the poor folk in the highlands are faced with a second incident – in the space of 12 months – this time taking the lives of five people.
The last time it happened, one would have thought the authorities had by now put in place preventive measures to avoid another incident. But did they?
One asked the following questions:
‘No, obviously not, judging from the wanton logging activities that are allowed to continue in the highlands in the last 12 months. What happened to the promises and pledges to the Cameron folk that “all possible measures” would be taken to prevent another incident?
What else can we say apart from screaming that the authorities are merely paying lip service? Are we going to leave the latest flooding incident as yet another “act of God”?
Or are the authorities going to say this time they would definitely take action?’
I have a more interesting question for those who claim they are upholding the law?
