The Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed said that the government will review the existing environmental protection legislation in response to the illegal dumping of toxic waste into Sungai Kim Kim, Pasir Gudang.

In light of the tragedy, the public has called for severe penalties for the perpetrators. Currently if found guilty, perpetrator can be charged up to 5 years imprisonment or a fine not exceeding RM500,000.
