Himpunan Hijau: Ongkili must cancel Lynas TOL!

Press statement of Himpunan Hijau
Ongkili must cancel the TOL
dated 28 September 2012

Today, Himpunan Hijau together with Stop Lynas Coalition (SLC) and Save Malaysia Stop Lynas (SMSL) call upon the Minister of Science, Technology & Innovation, Maximus Ongkili to immediately withdraw the Temporary Operating Licence (TOL) that has been wrongly issued to Lynas.

The approval and issuance procedures of the TOL are full of irregularities. We suspect the decision by the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) to issue the TOL is either due to pressure or has been induced by certain quarters. Ongkili must realize that it is his responsibility and duty to stop such improper practice. It is within his jurisdiction as a Minister to do so.

We know that at this juncture, SMSL and SLC are in the midst of legal process to stop the issuance of the TOL. By jumping the gun, AELB’s action is equivalent to contempt of court.

We have decided that we will file a complaint to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and we expect a thorough investigation to be carried out on this irregularity. We want an immediate and decisive action from MOSTI to cancel the TOL. Failing to do so, Himpunan Hijau will mobilize thousands to meet Ongkili at his MOSTI office. He must understand that he may be in position, but the actual power is with the people.

Himpunan Hijau also extend our strongest warning to Sojitz Corp and all Lynas’ investors that thousands of people have came forward to register in our BLOCKADE campaign. As we have promised to the world, they will witness the most massive civil disobedience ever in the history of this country.

As Lynas’ shares continue to suffer and spiral downwards, we strongly advise Sojitz Corp and all Lynas’ investors that the people of Malaysia are very determined to stop Lynas. We will carry out an all-out-war to ensure that the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) can never operate in our country.

“Sojitz Corp and all Lynas’ investors must clearly understand this sentiment and conviction of the people of Malaysia, pull out before your investments turn into ashes,” warned Wong Tack, chairperson of Himpunan Hijau national steering committee.

  2. Wow, you want to start "an all out war".

    Now we know we are dealing with violent extremists.

    Promotion of violence is against the law in Malaysia.

    I hope you all get thrown into gaol (jail)

  3. Every time I see a new story about SMSL their numbers are getting smaller and smaller.

    They will have only one more big protest when the shipment arrives, then they will be proven wrong and everyone can get back to work as normal.

    Still hoping this group stays together and fights against the coal fired power stations and destruction of the environment from palm oil plantations. This approach will make more sense that than trying to stop a green and sustainability friendly industry like Lynas.

  4. Promotion of violence and dealing with violent extremists are not accepted in malaysia!
