KUALA LUMPUR – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is urged to arrest the management and freeze the assets and accounts of Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated (MBI) for its involvement in the 880 hectares land in Ijok, Selangor.
The settlers’ representative, Fadzil Ibrahim said, immediate action needs to be taken as Selangor MBI had benefited from the land that was owned by the settlers.
“We welcome the MACC’s move in arresting the individuals connected to the developers and consultants suspected to have siphoned the monies from the sales of our land to Eco World.
“Nevertheless the MACC should also arrest, investigate and freeze assets and accounts of other parties related with the transactions.
“The legal firm Daim & Gamany appointed by the statement government which managed the funds from the sales should also be arrested and investigated,” he said in a statement today.
Earlier, the MACC arrested six individuals, including two Datuks to assist in the investigation of the 880 hectares land sales in Ijok, Selangor to a private developer at RM1.18 billion.
The Chief Commissioner of MACC Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad said, they have arrested individuals between the age of 34 and 84 in Petaling Jaya and Putrajaya respectively yesterday. Among those arrested included a father and his son.
Fadzil added, the MACC need to move fast in ensuring those monies are not siphoned overseas and the land is not developed before the case is resolved.
“We hope that the MACC can help resolve the mystery of our 1,000 acres land which was taken from us by the Selangor MBI.
“The settlers are always ready to assist in the investigation by MACC so that everyone will know how we are being cheated and oppressed by the state government,” he said. – MalaysiaGazette
