Land Scam reported by MCA Integrity Watch Group/ 土地舞弊案

I read from the newspaper a report was lodged at the MACC Putrajaya by the MCA Integrity Watch Group against my former political secretary about a purported land scam.

The said land was acquired by Ministry of Health (MOH) for the purpose of constructing a health clinic in Johor Bahru. Every year, MOH acquired many pieces of land and the size of land acquired varies according to the type of health clinic to be constructed.

Acquisition of land by government agency is often a complicated process where the Minister and its staff is not involved. In the case of Ministry of Health, often the process start from the district health clinic which make the recommendation to the state and finally to the MOH headquarters.

At the Ministry, there is this committee, “Jawatankuasa Pembangunan Tanah” or the Land Development Committee, which is chaired by the Ketua Setiausaha (KSU). If there is a need and there is budget allocated, then the committee will evaluate the status of the land. Valuation of the land is then done by the Valuation Department. If the offer price of the land is way above the valuation as done by the Valuation Department, then often this is rejected by the said committee. Then there is the process of gazettement of land and the actual process of acquisition, which is done by the local land office.

In the whole process, the Minister and its staffs is not involved. Hence, in this reported case, I am more than willing to cooperate with the MACC so that any founded allegation can be rebutted.

我阅报获知自称马华廉正监督小组的组织,早前向反贪委员会举报我的前政治秘书涉嫌一宗土地舞弊案。

据我了解,上述土地是被卫生部征购用以在柔佛建筑一间新政府诊所。

卫生部每年都会购买多块土地,所征用的土地面积则根据将要建设的诊所类型和规模。

政府机构征购土地的程序繁杂,而部长及他的办公室职员并没有参与这项过程。在卫生部,征购土地的程序是:由县政府诊所会向州卫生局推荐,再由州卫生局提交建议给中央,即卫生部。


如果需要征购土地及获得这笔预算分配,由卫生部秘书长为首的“卫生部土地发展委员会”将会评估有关土地的现况,然后由财政部的物业估价局进行估价。假设土地的售价高于估价局的估计价格,一般上该征购献议将不会被接纳。在其他符合评估和估价条件的献议,将会由当地的土地局执行宪报公布和一切征购程序。


在整个征购过程中,部长和他的办公室职员不会参与任何一项程序。因此,在这宗所谓的土地舞弊案,我很乐意与给反贪委员会合作,协助调查工作以让真相尽快水落石出。

All I can say Dato' is that all this while we suspect that this so called "MCA Integrity Watch Group" is set up by the President to "take care" of his opponents inside MCA. They have proven us correct and it is laughable for them to call themselves independent!

Few questions come to mind :

1. How did the MCA Integrity Watch Dog ("MCA Dog") get access to confidential Ministry documents which come under the Official Secrets Act?

2. Could it be that the MCA Dogs were fed with those information from the powers that be in the Health Ministry (no prizes for guessing who is the master supplier to the MCA Dogs).

3. If anyone bothers to read the land scam documents, it is very obvious that the MCA Dogs wilfully mislead the public by arriving at ill conceived conclusions. For example : Authorising a person (who is neither a director nor shareholder) to collect a cheque is no big deal. All Malaysian cheques are marked account payee and non-negotiable, so what is the fuss?

4. If you read the Companies search, the Phua fella only owns 30% of the shares in the company. If there is any wrongdoing, why are the MCA Dogs not going after the 70% Bumi shareholder? Afraid that the 70% Bumi fella has a powerful master?

*******

The way I look at it, at the rate the MCA Dogs bite at its masters, there may not be a party for the MCA Dogs to watch. The dog eat dog must stop.

P/s: The last I checked, the MCA Dogs took down their blog on the land scam *lol*

Dogs will be dogs..
