UNESCO decision any time now

Since 22 Jun, I've been waiting with bated breath about the decisions that the 33rd session of the World Heritage Committee would take in Seville, Spain.

The Committee has been reviewing the state of conservation of properties already listed as well as examining nominations for new cultural and natural sites.

In all their deliberations so far, the case for George Town, if it has been discussed at all, has not been made public. As we know, there is controversy here about the four high-rise hotels that have been proposed within the heritage zone.

I hope George Town does not get onto the UNESCO List of World Heritage in Danger just because of the thoughtless and reckless decision of the previous Penang state government.
