Degazettement Process Goes On, Despite COVID-19 Pandemic?

Degazettement Process Goes On, Despite COVID-19 Pandemic?

The current Movement Control Order (MCO) and the suspension of activities by NGOs by the Registrar of Societies, have made it impossible to have any proper assessment of impacts or dialogue on the proposed degazettement of the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve. So it came as a surprise when the Selangor state government announced it would soon conduct a public hearing session for the proposed degazettement. The Coalition for the Protection of Selangor’s Forests are calling upon the Selangor State Government to formally suspend the de-gazettement process, and to focus on the more important issues at hand; combatting the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the multiple impacts on the people and the local economy. We find out what's happening from Faizal Parish, the Director of the Global Environment Centre (GEC).
