Okay, I got this one wrong,
Lynas can't be bothered with Pakatan's bullshit anymore
Lynas’ move into the United States follows ongoing regulatory issues at its processing plant in Malaysia. The southeast Asian nation has told Lynas to remove years of accumulated waste at the plant in order to have its license renewed.
That's why I assumed that they are moving their facilities out of this country to US.
But I'm glad that I was wrong on this one.
At least now I know that Lynas' about 1,000 local workers are not going to lose their jobs.
At least for now.
I really hope Lynas will eventually win and those workers can really keep their jobs for good.
It would also mean that Malaysia can remain as the biggest producer and supplier of rare earths products outside China.
With that our country can play an important role in ensuring an even balance of global power as rare earth products are crucial for the making of high-tech equipment.
Anyway, I was not the only one who got it wrong that day.
PKR's Fuziah Salleh issued this statement hours after the Reuters story,
Mandatory to settle waste problem
despite relocating - Fuziah
She must had celebrated that day.
She even said
‘’They can leave Malaysia but must be responsible for their workers and their waste,’’ she said in a statement here today.
Well, I'm quite sure Lynas is a responsible entity. They are not giving up the fight just yet.
The ones who were being irresponsible are politicians like Fuziah who were willing to put people's livelihood and the country's interests at risk just to win some mileage based on lies and scientifically proven fallacies.
