KUALA TERENGGANU: The state government will appoint a consultant from Britain to determine the cause of the roof collapse at the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium.
Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said said the government had earlier rescinded the decision to set up it own investigative team to avoid any clash in the scope of probe initiated by a team set up by the Federal Government.
However, after taking into account the necessity of having an independent investigation panel apart from the federal team, the state government decided to appoint a reliable firm.
“The British consultant that we are close to appointing also has a regional office in Kuala Lumpur,” Ahmad told reporters here yesterday.
On June 6, the roof of the east wing of the RM292mil stadium in Gong Badak collapsed.
Ahmad said the British firm would submit the investigation papers to the state government while the federal team would hand its report to the Cabinet.
He added that the consultant would be given three months to conduct the probe.
