KUCHING: The Sarawak Legislative Assembly disallowed an opposition lawmaker's motion on the leakage at the Bengoh dam on the grounds that it is not urgent.

Citing local media reports on Sunday (Nov 12) that the Bengoh dam near here had shown signs of water seepage, See Chee How (PKR- Batu Lintang) tabled an emergency motion on Wednesday (Nov 15) urging the state government to appoint an independent dam consultant to examine the seepage and determine its potential risk of harming the dam.
