CASSA: BUKIT KUKUS INVESTIGATION SHOULD BE OPEN!

The statement of a Penang government official today that the high-level committee investigating the Bukit Kukus landslide would likely be restricted to government officials and selected experts after several groups expressed interest in standing as observers in the probe was slammed by CASSA!

This is no way to move forward neither does that statement reflect the claims of accountability, good governance and transparency!

Whose personal, private, corporate and felt needs is being protected here?

The continued episodes of landslides, fatalities, economic loss and clear present and future danger to residents, investors and visitors can no longer be insulated by political and public shenanigans!

The Penang government and certainly now the federal government has a duty of care that these process be super transparent insulating or protecting no quarter!

These landslides are no more a state matter but federal and a security matter in view the fatalities!

And it must be treated as such sending a message to all be they the public or private sector that there is zero tolerance for cover ups post GE14!
