Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Sitiawan on Friday, 28th August 2009:
Zambry must clarify the position of the 14,000 hec of land approved to Rahman Hydraulic Tin Bhd as announced by Dato’ Hamidah Osman, his Senior Exco in April this year
On 7/8/2009, Dato’ Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir accused me (Ngeh Koo Ham), YB Nga Kor Ming (MP for Taiping and PR Perak State Government Exco member) and YAB Datuk Seri Mohd Nizar Bin Jamaluddin (PR Perak Menteri Besar ) of spreading lies and accusing the BN State Government of approving 14,000 hec of land to Rahman Hydraulic Tin Bhd for Tin prospecting. The same was in fact announced by Dato’ Hamidah Osman, Zambry’s State Government Senior Exco member in April this year to be media. Zambry should clarify whether he is lying or Hamidah Osman is lying and both of them have a duty to the public to clarify the actual situation with regard to the approval of the said 14,000 hec of land.
Since my media statement on 12/8/2009 on this issue, Dato’ Seri Zambry has been exceptionally quiet on this matter. We at Pakatan Rakyat and the people of Perak demand from him transparency and he should clear the air on this issue immediately or we can presume that another scandal is brewing and will cause huge damage to the State of Perak and her people unless it is stopped now.
