Civil society groups are pleading to meet Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad before the Cabinet decides to renew the operating licence for Australian rare earths producer Lynas Corp, which is due for renewal in September.

Save Malaysia Stop Lynas (SMSL) chairman Tan Bun Teet on Sunday said the groups hope to meet Dr Mahathir within the next three weeks, as it is believed that the matter of Lynas licence renewal will be discussed in a Cabinet meeting in early August.
