State to meet Bukit Antarabangsa residents to explain risks

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor state government is expected to meet Bukit Antarabangsa residents early next year to brief them of the landslide risks to development and houses in the area based on the Dec6,2008 landslide investigations report, said Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

"We do not want to frighten the people but merely want the residents to understand the subject. We are preparing a working paper for the meeting," he told reporters when asked of the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide report that was classified as confidential, after opening The Seventh World Conference on Muslim Education organised by Kolej Universiti Islam Selangor (KUIS), The Islamic Academy, Cambridge United Kingdom and Ikatan Ilmuan Nasional on Dec 21, 2009.

Khalid added that people living on hill slopes must ensure that their drains are not clogged because it can affect other residents living below them.

The Bukit Antarabangsa landslide report was released early this month by the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ). -- Bernama
