One year later, Bukit Antarabangsa document is available to public

09/12/2009 The Star By BAVANI M

KUALA LUMPUR: The Bukit Antarabangsa landslide report has finally been released to the public by the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ).

Fifty copies of the report priced at RM80 were sold out by 11am yesterday.

According to an MPAJ officer, most of the copies had already been pre-booked before they went on sale early yesterday morning.

“We only had a limited number of copies but those who want the report can register with us and we will get them a copy,” she said.

Bukit Antarabangsa Action Committee secretary-general Raymond Jegathesan said the committee would study the report before deciding on their next course of action.

“We will be calling for a meeting to discuss with the MPAJ, developer and other relevant parties to see how to approach the situation in an amicable manner,” he said.

To ascertain the right course of action, Raymond said victims had been grouped into those who lost everything; those whose had deaths in their familes; and those who had to be evacuated and were still waiting to return home.

“We have to look at all aspects before deciding on our next move. Legal action will only be our final option,” Raymond added.

Victim Ungku Farid Ungku Abd Rahman said: “Justice delayed is justice denied. The report was promised three months from the date of the tragedy by the former minister. Now it has come out one year later. And why was it classified a secret in the first place.”

Bukit Antarabangsa residents association chairman Datuk N. Muneandy said he would be consulting with his lawyers soon.

The 78-page report was leaked and published on a social publishing website two days before it was released.

Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said the Cabinet had agreed to declassify the report following an application by MPAJ.

Late on Monday night, the Selangor government said the Ministry had not given it the go-ahead to release the report yesterday.

It is understood a letter signed by the ministry’s deputy secretary-general Datuk Nasir Mat Dam was sent to MPAJ early yesterday allowing the report to be released.
