A total of 11 trees (out of 13) at the 150-year-old heritage site were chopped down.

KUCHING: Sarawak Museum Department claims the felling of trees at the newly-restored Fort Alice in Sri Aman was the result of a “collective decision” made with the Resident Office.

The department said the incident at the 150-year-old heritage site, which attracted widespread condemnation, was for “public safety”.
