Hannah wants probe on fellow assemblyman - The Sun

SHAH ALAM (May 23, 2008): By Maria J.Dass

Subang Jaya assemblywoman Hannah Yeoh has asked the state to probe into the involvement of Seri Serdang assemblyman Datuk Mohamad Satim Diman’s involvement in the Mutiara Court development in Bandar Sunway which received its certificate of fitness for occupation from the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) despite not having any water and electricity connection.
In her maiden speech at the state assembly today, Yeoh said she had received complaints from buyers of the apartments and this included the unavailability of water and electricity connection, the absence of taps, light switches and even toilet bowls.

Referring to a Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE) announcement document dated June 14, 2004, she said: "KLSE had announce the sale of Westcourt by Merge Housing Bhd on June 11, 2004 to Datuk Mohamad Satim Diman and Wong Kam You. If I’m not wrong, this is the name of the Seri Serdang assemblyman who was also MPSJ councillor at that time."

She said the probe should look into whether there was conflict of interest.

"This is why the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) government doesn’t want state assemblymen to act as councilors at the same time," she added.

Yeoh also questioned the sale of Pembangunan Brisdale Sdn Bhd by Kumpulan Hartanah Sdn Bhd to GM Build for RM50,000. The sale included 400 acres in West Port and OUG Club among others. GM Build has now put up the OUG Club for sale for RM8 million.

"Isn’t this a form of corruption where a state government-linked company lets go of state-owned properties for a song only for others to make a profit out of it later?" she asked.
