Selangor to register illegal shelters and homes

PETALING JAYA: The Selangor Government will start registering illegal shelters and welfare homes in the state.

Exco member in charge of welfare Rodziah Ismail said she had also directed local councils and district offices to identify those that had not been registered.

“We will then check if these homes have followed government guidelines, including having licences and certificates of fitness (CFs) for their premises,” she said, adding that the operation would take three months.

Rodziah said the move was taken following the landslide that struck Rumah Anak Yatim Hidayah on Saturday, which killed 16 people, mostly children.

Meanwhile, PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail urged the state government to investigate the cause of the landslide.

She said investigations also had to be carried out for all buildings and houses on hillside slopes, including private property.
