5,000 up in arms over foul smell | Daily Express Newspaper Online, Sabah, Malaysia.

5,000 up in arms over foul smell | Daily Express Newspaper Online, Sabah, Malaysia.: "About 5,000 people in five villages here are complaining about foul odour emitted from a rubber processing factory in Kampung Kauran, near here.

They claimed the odour could affect their health, especially children and babies.

At the same time, they claimed the Kauran River being used by people in four villages as their main water source had also been polluted by the factory's waste.

Representatives from the five villages, namely JKKK Bakiau Chairman, James Leong, JKKK Muhibbah Chairman Claudius Kinsik, JKKK Kauran Chairman Safri Mohd Ram and JKKK Kadalakan and Banjar Chairman Petrus Sabiew, urged the Government to interfere and order the factory to be moved elsewhere.

They said they had also written a letter to Liawan Assemblyman, Datuk Sairin Karno."
