The above refers.
In my capacity as the Member of Parliament with the mandate of legislation, oversight and representation, and in accordance with Statutory Instrument 77/2020, I hereby demand that you hereby cease all operations at the Sunny Yi Feng Industrial Park with immediate effect.

The demand hereby made is in light of the risk posed by the threat of contamination by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) which has seen unsupervised and precarious quarantine systems practiced at your premises. Furthermore the overcrowding on the premises serves as a perfect conduit for the rapid spread of the disease and must therefore be addressed. Norton does not have the facilities or capacity to handle an outbreak of the Coronavirus if it is to occur, and this demand is thereby made to protect the innocent residents who may be exposed to the virus from persons on your premises suspected to be infected.

As a Member of Parliament it is incumbent on me to safeguard people’s lives and health and I therefore trust that you will take this demand with the seriousness it deserves and comply urgently.

Yours sincerely,
