Roof collapse in Terengganu: 'Where's the accountability?'

How many times must the roof of a public facility collapse in Terengganu before the authorities take action?

NONEThis was the question raised by PAS parliamentarian for Kuala Terengganu, Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad, on the third such incident this year.

The state government,  Raja Kamarul said, has still not learnt any lessons, as evidenced by the roof of the Kampung Tebauk mosque in Kuala Nerus caving in early yesterday morning.

He pointed out that no one has been taken to court over similar incidents that have occurred previously, some dating back to 2008.
"It's as though we are encouraging things like these to be repeated. There must be some accountability," he told a press conference at the Parliament lobby today.

"Are we getting value for money? Those guilty have never been punished," Raja Bahrin said.
Name all those involved
Meanwhile, PAS' Kuala Nerus MP Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali asked the Terengganu state government to name all the companies and individuals involved in construction of new mosques in Terengganu since 2009.

"If there is negligence, there must be a blacklist. The company and also the individuals," he said.

Mohd Khairuddin also urged the government to immediately release its report on the roof collapse of a mosque in Binjai Kertas, Hulu Terengganu in May this year.

"No report has been released yet. We urge the government to release a report on the collapse immediately," he said.

In February, the roof of the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium in the state collapsed for the second time. The first collapse was in 2008.
