20 sen plastic bag fee also DAP gangster want to steal


"Tell us what happened to the 20 sen collected", NGO tells Guan Eng

GEORGE TOWN: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been given three days to explain where the proceeds of the 20 sen collected under the 'No Plastic Bag' campaign initiated by the state government had gone to.

The ultimatum was issued by a non-governmental organisation  called Sekretariat Penerangan Yaacob Bebas, during a 30-minute demonstration by its members in Komtar.

The group's representative, Mohd Yaacob Mohd Noor, said the state government did not reveal where the 20 sen per plastic bag fee had been channeled to and this had left many people wondering.

"We would like him (Guan Eng) to tell us where the money had gone to or how it was spent ever since it was implemented last January...or else we will protest here again," he said.

He also demanded that the state provide environmentally-friendly paper bags if it wanted to keep true to its 'welfare government'.

The full implementation of the campaign was introduced in Penang on Jan 1, 2011, and compels all supermarkets, pharmacies, fast food restaurants, nasi kandar restaurants and convenience stores including petrol stations to charge 20 sen for a plastic bag under its 'Cleaner, Greener, Penang' initiative.

It was reported that the money collected from the sale of plastic bags would be channeled to a special fund called “Partners Against Poverty” to help the state’s hardcore poor. - NST 30/1/13
