KUANTAN: The Pahang National Agenda Federation of non-governmental organisations (Daun) wants Kuantan member of parliament Fuziah Salleh and the anti-Lynas group to apologise for making allegations against the company.
Daun coordinator Wan Emril Nizam said the open apology should be addressed to all Malaysians, especially residents of Kuantan, for giving the wrong facts about the plant.
"Fuziah and the anti-Lynas group had created fear among Malaysians and Kuantan residents on the construction of the plant."
Yesterday, Free Malaysia Today, on its website www.freemalaysiatoday.com, said MToday News Sdn Bhd apologised for articles saying that Lynas plant might be unsafe to the public.
Lynas Corporation Limited received bad publicity from various parties, especially opposition parties which politicised the construction of the plant.
"We demand an apology like Free Malaysia Today, which admitted its mistakes by giving the wrong information with no scientific basis.
"Daun received feedback from the people that they are tired of lies and gimmick by the anti-Lynas group, dominated by those supporting the DAP," said the senior law lecturer of Kolej Islam Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah (Kipsas).
