via The Star, 08 December 2013:

All land owners in Kedah must obtain the approval of the Kedah government and the National Heritage Department before undertaking any construction if they find on their property structures that can be regarded as archaeological remnants.

Mentri Besar Datuk Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir said the directive would be issued to avert a recurrence of the incident where the ruins of an ancient temple were destroyed last Monday in Sungai Batu, in the archaeologically rich Lembah Bujang.
