JOHOR BARU (Bernama): More than 100 victims of the pollution in Pasir Gudang in March and June have lodged a police report here to urge the authorities to conduct a thorough investigation on the incidents.

Among the victims who lodged the reports were residents of Taman Pasir Putih, Kota Masai and Tanjung Puteri Resort.

The police report was made through the Resident Action Body On Environment Pollution Issues of Taman Pasir Putih at the Seri Alam Police Station at 11.11am Sunday (July 14).

The body’s deputy chairman, Mohd Rafee Abdullah, 46, said that an investigation must be done because there was a possibility that the monitoring and enforcements conducted by the quarters concerned were imperfect resulting in pollutions taking place.

He said that the body had found shortcomings after scrutinising the data of illegal dumpsites, illegal factories, plants flouting the rules and the recent media reports.

"We want the authorities concerned to conduct an investigation to determine if there are elements of corruptions, threats to the enforcement authorities or misconduct which caused these incidents," he told reporters here.

Meanwhile, Seri Alam district police chief Supt Ismail Dollah, when contacted, confirmed that a police report was lodged by the body on Sunday. - Bernama
