Ex-estate workers stage demo outside Musas office
About 30 people staged a protest outside the office of Guthrie chairperson Musa Hitam in Kuala Lumpur today over the recent demolition of houses in an estate in Shah Alam.
The group representing the Residents' Association of Bukit Jelutong Rasak gathered outside Menara Citibank at about 10.30am.
They carried a banner that read, "Tan Sri Musa Hitam, where are our basic rights" and also distributed leaflets to passers-by.
The former chairperson of the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) was appointed to his position as Guthrie chairperson in Aug 2002. He is also the director of the Lion Group, which has its head office in Menara Citibank.
Several representatives of the resident's association also handed a memorandum to Musa via Guthrie's Public Affairs Manager Noor Aizam Al Jeffri who came to the scene later after being informed about the protest.
Noor Aizam told reporters the memorandum would be passed to Musa and to Guthrie's management for further consideration.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
