I don’t know what to make out of this sms, which sources say, is making its round in Penang. I hope Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng gets one, too, so that he can get down to it:
“Dear poor Penangnites, pls b informed that our former Chief Minister Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon has cheated Penang people on government land sales. A big piece of open land located at Padang Tembak, beside Sekolah Pd tembak (formerly belongs to poor people of their houses being demolished) is now converted into individual property with the owner named KHAIRY JAMALUDDIN, son-in-law of Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi. We Penang people would like to appeal to new CM Lim Guan Eng to take immediate legal action against previous BN government for such an inhuman deals & return back the land to Penang people. Koh Tsu Koon is now residing in KL when this land deal was exposed to the knowledge of the public. We wnat ex-CM to explain for this matter. Pls sms to all.”
Hmm…let me think. Perhaps, it’s related to this?
The Penang government is not satisfied with the outcome of the Anti-Corruption Agency investigations into alleged land scam cases in Penang. CM Lim Guan Eng said the land scam cases dated back to 2003.
He added the state government’s special land investigative committee would proceed with its own probe, Its task would be to find out who is responsible and ensure adequate punishment is meted out.
It would also be required to draw up guidelines to ensure land scams do not recur again in Penang. Lim said this after meeting state ACA director Noraziah Abdul Manaf to discuss the matter today. Also present at the meeting, held at the chief minister’s office in Komtar here, were Deputy Chief Minister I Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin and State Secretary Datuk Jamaludin Hasan.
