Selangor says MPK never approved fireworks display
Majlis Pembandaran Klang (MPK) said it did not approve the New Year’s Eve fireworks display at Pesta Gegar Klang 2016, which injured more than a dozen people when it exploded at ground level.
The fireworks show was not listed on the official programme of the event, according to Selangor executive councillor in charge of local government Ean Yong Hian Wah.
The MPK investigation team set up on Jan 1 will reveal their findings in two weeks, he said.
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 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.
