“The established committee will not only discuss the issue of radioactive pollution by the waste from the Lynas plant, as it was previously focused on by the government.

Also present were Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh, Semambu assemblyman Lee Chean Chung and Save Malaysia Stop Lynas chairman Tan Bun Teet
