No need for inquest on deaths of Kuala Koh Orang Asli - Kelantan Deputy MB

Last Update: 05/07/2019

KOTA BHARU, July 4 (Bernama) --  There is no need for an inquest to determine the actual cause of  death of the 15 Orang Asli from the Batek tribe in Kuala Koh recently, said Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar  Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah.

He said this was because the relevant authorities, including the Health Ministry, Hazardous Material Unit (Hazmat) and the department of Environment (DOE), had issued official statements on the matter.

In fact, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail  herself was in Gua Musang to observe the situation and issued a statement that the deaths were not due to mining activities or pollution, he told reporters after opening the Kota Bharu Peace Memorial Park at Taman Al-Fursan here today.

He was responding to a suggestion by Cameron Highlands Member of Parliament  Ramli Mohd Nor in Parliament yesterday for an inquest to determine the actual cause of death of the Orang Asli members.

The Kota Bharu Peace Memorial Park was built through a personal contribution by Japan Rohm-Wako honorary president Datuk Yosuke Yoshioka as a symbol of lasting friendship between Kelantan and Kasaoka, in Japan.
