CONSUMERIST – SELANGOR SAND THEFT – LEGALIZING NOT THE ANSWER!

Dato Jacob George

‘So the only logic is Selangor is now ill filtrated by thieves, robbers, conman and others who may have symbiotic ties to powers that be?

When cornered this morning by CASSA, the authorities and the land owner, the main culprit who already had a cabin, excavator and workers and Lorries extracting earth from someone else’s land claimed he had permits for both – river mining and earth!

This right in front of the owner!

So instead of arresting these shenanigans, is the Selangor government saying let us organize them?’ – Dr Jacob George

 

CONSUMERIST – SELANGOR SAND THEFT – LEGALIZING NOT THE ANSWER!

If they are well financed, connected, organized but illegal is the option legalizing them?

I am referring to the theft of earth and sand in the state of Selangor!

Recently there was major illegal activity near my home at TTDI Jaya in Shah Alam (opposite Monfort Boys Town) where illegal earth and sand from Sungei Damansara were being carried out by a well connected and organized group!

Even TV3 and Utusan Malaysia quoting me carried a story and exposure on it!

Over this weekend they were also stealing earth from the same area – a land mass belonging to TTDI Development while at the same time dumping rubbish from Subang into the area where earth was extracted!

I am advised the culprits were charging between RM35/- to RM55/- per lorry to dump rubbish from another developing area to this one!

Ingenious, crooked to the teeth, and they were organized no doubt having Lorries, car with lookouts and right before the eyes of MBSA!

And MBSA enforcement is a sad joke!

Inefficient, inactive lazy and third graders!

Good only to harass petty traders and poor ‘mak chiks and pak chiks’ selling nasi lemak, pisang goreng and fried kacang by the housing estate to earn extra money!

This million ringgit earth and sand robbery did not take place in some rural area but right in the heartland of Shah Alam and in broad daylight!

So the only logic is Selangor is now ill filtrated by thieves, robbers, conman and others who may have symbiotic ties to powers that be?

When cornered this morning by authorities and the land owner, the main culprit who already had a cabin, excavator and workers and Lorries extracting earth from someone else’s land claimed he had permits for both – river mining and earth!

This right in front of the owner!

So instead of arresting these shenanigans are the Selangor government saying let us organize them?

Is this the only way to address and eradicate sand theft in Selangor by the state government plans to offer more sand mining permits to ‘possible thieves’ who are well connected!

This is to enable the state government to earn revenue from the mining activities rather than lose out to syndicates extracting sand illegally?

I will now approach federal authorities to see how we can jointly address this menace and detain this well organized, financed and connected group!

Our campaign against RACISM of all forms!
