On 4th Aug 2022, SACF Society and PEKA Malaysia filed a joint judicial review application against the Selangor government for the unlawful degazettement of 1,003 acres of the Bukit Cherakah Forest Reserve which includes the Shah Alam Community Forest. The degazettement was published on 20th May 2022 and BACKDATED 22 YEARS to take effect on 20th Nov 2000.
We seek to challenge the legitimacy of this document which has denied the local community the right to participate in a public inquiry as required in Section 11 of Selangor’s National Forestry Act (Adoption) (2011 Amendment) Enactment 1985.
