MEDIA CONFERENCE AT DAP PERAK HEADQUARTERS, IPOH ON 14-11-2015 (SATURDAY) BY NGEH KOO HAM, PERAK STATE ASSEMBLYMAN CUM OPPOSITION WHIP
Perak MB Incorporated for whom? Thousands of acres of land worth billions of ringgit approved to Perak MB Incorporated. If 1MDB is Malaysia’s mother of all scandals, Perak MB Incorporated can become Perak biggest scandal in history.
Often it is said that the business of a government is not business. The main business of a govern is to create a more conducive environment for the people’s enjoyment of life, work and business.
Even if a government is involved in business, its sole aim should be to generate revenue to reduce taxes and to use the income generated to benefit its citizens.
However, since BN’s undemocratic grab of power on 6/2/2009 in Perak, the BN Perak State Government’s priority has been to be involved in business to benefit a select few at the expense of the Perakians. A glaring example is Perak MB Incorporated.
Since Perak MB Incorporated was activated in 2012, our investigation shows that more than 10,000 acres of land worth billions of Ringgit have been approved to Perak MB Incorporated.
Our investigation shows that Perak MB Incorporated has been approved lands from at least 7 of the 10 districts in Perak and they are as follows:
(i) Hulu Perak District.
(ii) Kuala Kangsar District.
(iii) Larut Matang dan Selama District.
(iiii) Batang Padang District.
(v) Manjung District.
(vi) Perak Tengah District.
(vii) Kinta District.
1MDB is the biggest scandal in the history of Malaysia and Perak MB Incorporated will be the biggest scandal in the making for Perak if left unchecked. On behalf of the people of Perak, we demand that YAB Menteri Besar of Perak, Dato Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir discloses all the lands that have been approved to MB Incorporated and also all the agreements entered into by MB Incorporated. We demand that a copy of the list of the lands approved to MB Incorporated and all agreements entered into by MB Incorporated be supplied to all the State Assemblyman/women when the State Assembly starts its sitting on Tuesday 17th November 2015.
