Climbers’ Day to commemorate Mount Kinabalu tragedy on June 5

20th May, 2016

By IZHAM WAIDI

KUNDASANG: The parents and relatives of Singapore victims who were killed in the Ranau earthquake last year will commemorate the tragedy by scaling to the summit of Mount Kinabalu on June 5.

Sabah Parks Director Dr Jamili Nais said more than 30 Singaporeans would participate in the programme which has also received the cooperation of the Singapore Education Department as the tragedy involved victims who were on a study tour then.

“The programme is still under discussion but it will definitely be held on that day. We will also invite the mountain guides to commemorate the event,” he told reporters at the Liwagu restaurant here on Wednesday.

Jamili said after the programme the Sabah Parks might also hold a Climbers’ Day to commemorate the tragic event. Following the recently launched Search and Rescue (SAR) simulation training, Jamili expressed confidence that the 5-hour-53-minute operation by the mountain search and rescue operation (MOSAR) team and other agencies involved had strengthened the confidence of mountain climbers as safety aspects had been enhanced.

“The MOSAR team had shown their capability and speed in the rescue operation and the ‘victims’ did not experience panic or fear,” he said.

Jamili also said that Sabah Parks and other related agencies would hold meetings from time to time to discuss improvement of services, facilties and safety aspects.

“We hope to further improve performance and quality of service for climbers,” he added.
