GEORGE TOWN: The two state local councils have been given two weeks to reveal the number of illegal factories operating in Penang.
Newly formed People’s Alternative Party vice-president Rahmad Isahak said they would refer the matter to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) if the councils failed to reveal it.
“They are duty-bound to reveal the information to the public. A reliable source told us that there are more than 200 illegal factories in Penang, mainly on the mainland,” he said when contacted yesterday.
Rahmad claimed that the state’s signing of the MACC’s corruption-free pledge was just a gimmick.
“Just a week after they signed the pledge, the illegal factory issue in Kampung Sungai Lembu came up,” he said.
