KUALA LUMPUR: An opposition MP has filed an emergency motion in the Dewan Rakyat, seeking for a debate on sand smuggling in the country.
Er Teck Hwa (DAP – Bakri), who filed the motion, said such activities were humiliating and had caused Malaysia to suffer huge losses.
“It is as though we are selling our land to another country,” he said. Such crimes indicated weak enforcement, he added.
Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia will decide on the the motion on Monday.
