Massacre relatives in inquiry bid

Sunday 06 May 2012

Relatives of unarmed Malaysian rubber plantation workers slaughtered by British troops in 1948 will make a High Court bid for a public inquiry into the killings this week.

The government’s refusal to hold a formal investigation into the Batang Kali massacre will be challenged during a two-day judicial review hearing.

Family members of the victims will ask the court to quash the government’s 2010 decision against holding an inquiry.

The massacre occurred on December 12 1948 while British troops were trying to put down the Communist insurgency known as the Malayan Emergency.

Successive British governments have covered up the massacre of 24 unarmed Malaysian rubber plantation workers by British troops in 1948, a lawyer representing relatives of the victims claimed on Monday: here.

    MALAYSIA: Australian mining firm Lynas Corp said today that it has finally been given a permit to switch on a “rare earths” mine to extract valuable minerals in the east of the country.

    Locals backed by activists have waged a long campaign against the project which they fear will see toxic and radioactive waste enter the environment.

    The firm claims it will be “fully compliant” with international standards.
