Rock blasting work at the Bolton Surin project site in Tanjung Bunga on 14 May. The blast sent a rock flying; it landed on the slope and then rolled down to hit a tree, shaking it violently, according to an eye-witness.
A resident in the area managed to capture the blasting on video.
A police report was later lodged and the cops were also handed a set of the blasting permit criteria, which had been posted to Chee Seng Garden residents.
The police told the resident who lodged the complaint that they would do what was in their authority to try and stop the blasting. But the residents are worried that any moratorium would only be temporary. They are worried about the safety of their families as the rocks could fly anywhere.
What is the state government and MPPP doing to address the residents’ concerns?
