The current state of affairs in Perak and PDRM’s spate of random arrests has manifested a state of despair amongst most of us that try to be law abiding. For many of us, there is  a sudden numbness of senses or a need to shutdown, with a hope to wake up to a day with some ray of light through the dark clouds.

Yet, should we or can we afford to ignore other dangers lurking to claim more victims? As much as residents in the shadow of proposed development at Bukit Gasing (Sanctuary Ridge), had gained some respite with success in getting leave to proceed with its request for Judicial Review of DBKL’s actions, residents in Bukit Antarabangsa are still in danger of landslides.

It is amazing that despite various promises to release the report into the causes for the tragic landslide on 6 December 2008, some 5 months on, report is still not available.  Despite promises to help to monitor and prevent further tragedy at Bukit Antarabangsa, I am shocked to read about Dr. Rafick’s discovery of horrors on the slopes bordering Athenaeum Condo and Sri Ukay.  Is our government waiting for more deaths before they will act? Do we have a 1BlackMalaysia, People Last and No Performance authority?

Please go read Dr Rafick’s observation at=> http://rights2write.wordpress.com/2009/05/10/bukit-antarabangsait-does-not-hurt-if-you-don%E2%80%99t-know/

Please, please let us all pray that the residents at Bukit Antarabangsa are kept save until such time that the authorities will wake up to the fact that they are responsible for acting in the interest of the people that pay their wages. For those with connections to wake up folks that should have acted to honour their responsibilities to the public, do help Dr Rafick getting some urgent action.  Do spreading the news that all is still not well for many living near hillside and hill slopes in Malaysia.
