MACC to seize 10 million tonnes of bauxite

Bauksit-2MO, 13/8/2017, PUTRAJAYA – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will seize over 10 million tonnes of bauxite stockpile in Pahang to facilitate its investigations into illegal bauxite mining in the state.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki said the seizure was to prevent the bauxite being taken out of the stockpile area for business or other purposes. The action would involve all bauxite stockpiles on government-owned and private land in the state.

MACC had discussed with the Natural Resources and Environment Minis­try and proposed the ministry to carry out a review of the issuance of Approval Permit (AP) to bauxite mine operators and to revoke all APs issued earlier. The MACC would also monitor to prevent any bauxite export at Kuantan Port.
