Coffin protest by Melaka Portuguese community was a desperate survival call


MELAKA: Coffins placed by the Portuguese community during the protest at the Melaka Gateway site office on Tuesday (July 17) are considered "sui (bad luck)" for locals, but this indicates a desperate call for survival, says state exco member Norhizam Hassan Baktee.

He said the community had no choice but to resort to this in order the capture the attention of the state government, after efforts to have their voices heard on the impact of the project on the Melaka Portuguese settlement had gone unheeded by the previous administration.
