PETALING JAYA: An environmental group has urged the Selangor government to respect the state assembly’s decision to not delist the Kuala Langat North forest reserve, after a state official said degazetting the forest was still on the cards.

Selangor executive councillor Hee Loy Sian had said yesterday that the delisting of the forest is still on the cards. The forest is occupied by rich wildlife species and is the home of Orang Asli.

Hee said an investigation and discussions with academics and experts were being carried out about degazettement of the forest.

Sahabat Alam Malaysia president Meenakshi Raman said “degazettement or not” should have been moot, as the Selangor legislature had passed a motion not to touch any forest reserves.
