A non-governmental organisation has submitted a memorandum to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in response to the resubmission of the cancelled Petaling Jaya Dispersal Link (PJD Link) project’s Social Impact Assessment (SIA).

Speaking to The Star outside the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya on Wednesday (Dec 2), Gerakan Menentang Penilaian Impak Tebuk Atap (Gempita) spokesman Dhanaraj Arumugam said they made the formal complaint as they believed that the resubmission of the SIA was illegal.

Dhanaraj said the Selangor government must order new focus group discussions instead of submitting the SIA, and added that he hopes the Selangor government can urge the Federal Government agencies to immediately open an investigation paper for the purpose of getting clarity about the viability of this project.
