Awang Tengah in Denial!
Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan yesterday disputed the report by Auditor General Office pertaining to the mismanagement of the forest in the state. According to the Auditor-General's Report of 2008, poor management of forests has led to river pollution, erosion, landslides and destruction of flora and fauna in Kelantan, Pahang, Johor and Sarawak, .
Awang Tengah dispute the report by saying that AG was not qualified to make such report as they were not expertised in Forest Management. He further added that AG only can make a report on accounting and not on forest management.
This is the type of leader that Sarawak can produce, always in denial. The AG report was made based on the audit conducted nationwide. The report to me does make sense. Look at what happened to batang Rejang. The river is getting murky and last year 1000 of fishes were found floated and dead. And the investigation done by NREB found that the fishes were dead due to the polluted Rejang River as a result of uncontrolled logging upstream.
To Awang Tengah, Please get rid of your denial syndrome and start working to rectify the weakness highlighted by the AG office.
To the AG Office, Congratulations!
