Putting Lynas "On Hold" does not mean it is a STOP WORK order - 暂搁“莱纳斯”并不意味它是停工令!

Press Release
Fuziah Salleh
MP Kuantan
26th April 2011

MITI Minister said that it's on hold on issuing of the operating license and on hold for the importation of rare earth ore from Australia. Both of which does not have any impact or mean anything since both is due to happen only in September.

On the other hand, the Panel of experts will take one month to present their findings.. Thus will not hamper Lynas's progress in any way..

Minister said on friday 23rd April that MITI will appoint the panel of experts within 2-3 days. I have sent in a letter to Minister first thing on monday 25th April asking to discuss with MITI on the appointment of the panel of experts and for the whole process to be transparent. I have also asked to submit the signitories from the Concerned Citizens of Kuantan on "Stop Lynas" to the Minister.

I am still waiting for the confirmation of the appointment and have made myself available anytime this week.

So in the meantime, we have time to ponder what does it really mean by putting Lynas on Hold?

贸工部长宣布暂时不会发出前期营运执照(pre-operating licence)给澳洲莱纳斯(Lynas)稀土厂,以及不会批准任何稀土原料从澳洲进口到大马。但这两项补苴罅漏的措施并没有对厂方带来任何的冲击或代表什么,因为这两项措施只能在九月后才可贯彻。


贸工部长在周五4月23日说贸工部将在2-3天内公布有关专家小组的人选。我已在周一4月25日第一时间写信给部长,要求跟贸工部讨论参与专家小组的委任, 并要求整个委任和评估过程是透明的。同时,我也要求递交关心关丹公民联署的请愿书迫切要求“停止莱纳斯”。
