SHAH ALAM: Ex-PKR member Badrul Hisham Shaharin today handed over 15-pages of evidence on the Ijok land scandal to the state Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters in Section 16.
The founder of Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM), who is known as Chegu Bard, said part of the evidence shows that former Umno Batu Kawan vice-chief Datuk Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan was the company director that had failed to develop the land for the Ijok settlers for 18 years.
“The documents I submitted consists of old and new evidence.
“Selangor MACC must summon Khairuddin so that checks can be carried out on whether he has direct or indirect links to this scandal.
“This is also based on my earlier submission of evidence back in Aug last year when I had handed a 70-page document titled ‘Evidence of PKPS Land Misappropriation in Ijok’ where I had complained about a RM1.181 billion sales transaction allegedly carried out by Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.
“It also named Khairuddin, believed to have been at the centre of the conflict of interest, as there are two documents which bear his signatures as LBCN Development Sdn Bhd company director and Mujur Zaman Sdn Bhd director.
“The two documents clearly prove the conflict of interest due to the relationship between Khairuddin and Azmin, including Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, which had been forged long before,” he said.
The documents include the appointment of law firm Daim & Gamany, owned by PKR man R. Sivarasa, who had acted on behalf of the settlers, as well as an out of court settlement initiated by Azmin’s administration although the decisions made by the High and Appeals Court favoured the state government.
The plots of land totaling 880ha was bought by LBCN Development Sdn Bhd and Mujur Zaman Sdn Bhd in 1998.
The two plots were seized by the state government when Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was the menteri besar in 2009 after the developer appointed by the settlers failed to develop the land.
Chegu Bard also claimed he was told by settlers that they were forced to sign the homes’ sales and purchase agreements as part of the compensation but had never seen the showhouses and were not given a copy of the documents after it was inked.
“Azmin also lied to the settlers on the value of properties and compensation several times and the amount changed three times in a month. “According to the state government mouthpiece, SelangorKini, in Feb this year, Azmin said settlers would be given RM80,000 and a house worth RM250,000.
“However, few days later on Feb 16, Azmin announced that the houses were valued at RM400,000 each and the compensation would be RM400,000 instead.
“But, on Feb 23 and 24 respectively, the Selangor Menteri Besar’s Office communications officer and Sivarasa said the houses were worth RM500,000 each.
“It is clear that the state government is trying to deceive the people in the Ijok land scandal and they are in a panic as they look for answers to hide something.
“They are constantly changing their answers when a frequently asked questions document prepared by Sivarasa’s law firm stated that each home was worth RM250,000.”
