Here we go again with another dirty Minister and his corrupt political secretary. Think we already have enough ot UMNO's problems with Azalina and her political secretary, Norza Zakaria, Ali Rustam, etc....and now MCA has shown that it is as dirty as hell. This time another political secretary of prominent former MCA Minister, Dato' Sri Dr. Chua Soi Lek.
Press people saw a member of NGO watch was seen leaving the MACC building in Putrajaya Friday afternoon. It was widely believed that she had made a report based on certain documents she had received concerning the said former Minister. MACC confirmed receiving the documents.
The documents of alleged a land scam surrounding the building of a polyclinic in Johor can be found all over the Internet and have kindly compiled them in this blog. A search with the company documents of the said company, Kurnia Heights Sdn. Bhd. reveals that one of the directors and shareholder (Phua Tai Kiang) of the special purpose vehicle was none other than the brother-in-law of the political secretary, Datuk Tee Siew Kiong. Phua is the husband of Datuk Tee's wife, Datin Lee Choon Guek.
It initially acquired a power of attorney after it signed a sale & purchase from the original owners, Lee family of Maha Global Sdn. Bhd. for a sum of RM8 million plus, as revealed from the documents which shown a redemption sum of approximately RM4.065 million to be paid to the chargee bank, RHB Bank Bhd, and approximately RM3.048 million to be paid to Maha Global Sdn. Bhd. with the usual upfront deposit. The said land was subsequently sold to the Government for an astonishing sum of RM29 million.
Maha Global Sdn. Bhd can thus be alleged to have made a clean profit of RM19 million from the sale & purchase transaction.
What is fishy is that the close timing between the purchase of the land which happened in October 2005, and the date of the gazette of the land acquisition (and change from status of Private School to Polyclinic). Only persons such as the Minister and his people with prior and insider knowledge of the intended acquision by the Government i.e. Health Ministry will want to acquire the land.
The land was initially restricted to private school use before the gazette. Think....why would an investment holding company like Kurnia Heights with no other business want to buy this plot of land unless it wants to make some serious money by selling it to the Government later. We can say that they knew Ministry of Health was buying it already before that.
If one looks at the documents, can see that somebody by the name of Tee Yok Ong (noticed the surname!!), who is not a director nor shareholder of Kurnia Heights was authorised to collect the cheque from the Government on behalf of the company.
Very very suspicious if you ask me. The MACC should investigate this and make public of the investigation. Just interview the Johor land office people who am sure are on the take too and you'll uncover more. Same goes with Health Ministry officials as well. This is just the the icing on the cake. There are more....
