Court rejects judicial review bid by Gebeng residents

The Kuala Lumpur High Court has rejected the leave application for a judicial review against the Atomic Energy Licensing Board's (AELB) approval of a temporary operating licence to Lynas Corporation to operate a rare earth refinery.

 The application filed by 10 residents from Gebeng, Kuantan, where the refinery is located, was declared "premature" on three peculiar facts and circumstances issued by Justice Rohana Yusof. The judge pointed out that the court is not the right platform to deal with the judicial review as there is an appeal pending before the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister that is set to be heard on April 17.
