JOHOR BARU: A Singaporean and two Malaysians were charged on Sunday (Mar 24) over the illegal dumping of chemicals into Sungai Kim Kim in Pasir Gudang, local media reported.

According to The Star Online, Singaporean Wang Jin Chao, 34, and Malaysian Yap Yoke Liang, 36, directors of a used tyre-processing company, are accused of conspiring with lorry driver N Maridass, 35, who is accused of illegally disposing chemicals into Sungai Kim Kim on Mar 7.

All three pleaded not guilty when the charges were read before Judge Hakim Jailani Rahman, said the report. It added that they are set to face further charges.

The trio were charged in the Sessions Court in Johor Bahru under Section 34B(1)(a) of the Environment Quality Act 1974, while Yap and Wang were also charged under Section 42 of the same Act.


They face sentencing under Section 34B(4) of the Act.

Meanwhile, another Singaporean man is wanted by police to assist with investigations.

And the Chinese in Malaysia still wondered why they are hated by the muds and called 'pendatang'.
You see these Malaysian Chinese here and they are usually pro-PAP as they share the same values ie money/profit above all else.
Recently one of these Malaysian Chinese even dared to scold locals as "si gin na" in Parliament , see what happened to Hyflux and the Minister who said being a doctor is like serving NS
