GEORGE TOWN: The controversy surrounding the development of Sia Boey (old Prangin market) and the Prangin Canal has again sparked anger among heritage activists, this time with allegations that excavation works were being carried out illegally at the site.

George Town Heritage Action Group spokesman Mark Lay claimed that the George Town World Heritage Incorporated (GTWHI) had mobilised its staff to carry out the works without approval from the National Heritage Department.
