SHAH ALAM, June 3 — The re-gazetting process of Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve (HSKLU) spanning an area of 536.7 hectares, which was previously de-gazetted in 2021, has been finalised during the state government meeting (MMKN), two weeks ago.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said that the issue is considered to be over and the implementation will be carried out by the Selangor Forestry Department (JPNS).

“The total forest area is still the same as before. Implementation will be done by the JPNS,” he said when asked to comment on the matter.

He said this after officiating at the handing over ceremony of sacrificial animals for Hari Raya Haji at the Shah Alam City Council Convention Centre here, today.

The de-gazetting of HSKLU was announced by the state Tourism, Environment, Green Technology and Orang Asli Affairs Committee chairman Hee Loy Sian at the State Legislative Assembly sitting on Aug 30, 2021, approved under Section 12, Selangor Forestry Act (Adoption) Enactment 1985.

At the ceremony, Amirudin said the state government will hand over 700 cows and 1,000 goats starting June 28 to mosques, surau, agencies and institutions to carry out the religious sacrificial rites (korban) at the end of this month.

He said in total, the state government has spent RM6 million for the implementation of the sacrificial rites this year.

Also present at the ceremony was the state Infrastructure, Public Amenities and Agriculture Modernisation Committee chairman Izham Hashim. — Bernama
