Cops know cause of Genting bus crash

PETALING JAYA - Police have determined the cause of last month's horrific bus crash in Genting Highlands but will wait for hospital and pathologist results and reports from other authorities before making it public.

Bentong OCPD Supt Mohd Mansor Mohd Nor said police were trying to streamline the submission of the reports.

"As far as the police are concerned, we have already drawn our conclusion on what caused the crash based on our forensics but we have to wait for the other reports before saying anything," he said yesterday.

All Supt Mohd Mansor would say about the cause of the accident was that there were "no surprises".

On Aug 21, the bus travelling from Genting Highlands to Kuala Lumpur plunged 60m into a ravine, killing 37 people and injuring 16 others.

It was reported that the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) issued a show-cause letter to the bus operator, Genting Highlands Trans-port Sdn Bhd, on Wednesday.

SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar had said that the operator had seven days to show why its licence should not be revoked or why it should not face action.
