KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 6 — Former Selangor Mentri Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo will face charges in court today over alleged land fraud in connection with the purchase of property in Section 7, Shah Alam.
The Malaysian Insiderunderstands that the prosecution will be led by Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail at the Shah Alam Session Court.
The Selangor opposition leader will be charged with businessman Shamsuddin Hayroni.
They will be charged under section 165 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum imprisonment of two years.
The case makes Dr Khir (picture) the second major Barisan Nasional (BN) leader to be prosecuted since Datuk Seri Najib Razak took over the government in April last year.
Last July, former Transport Minister Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik was charged with misleading the Cabinet over land acquisition in Port Klang.
Dr Khir’s prosecution comes just a day after a rare BN convention where party leaders made a pledge to reject corrupt practices in preparation for possible snap polls.
The Sungai Panjang assemblyman’s Balinese-style home built on the Shah Alam property has been seen as the face of corruption and exploited by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders to campaign against BN in the state.
The property is said to be worth more than RM20 million but Dr Khir insisted that he bought it for only RM3.5 million.
In 2004 former Minister Tan Sri Kasitah Gaddam and tycoon Eric Chia were charged with corruption and criminal breach of trust respectively, just weeks before then-Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi called for the 11th general election which saw BN winning 90 per cent of the parliamentary seats.
Kasitah was acquitted in August last year while Chia was declared a free man in 2007.
When KT was appointed MB, KT's mother and father were on TV and more or less said that.. kita rasa bangga KT jadi MB dan menasihati KT supaya kerja dengan baik dan jangan sesekali ambil rasuah.... It appears that KT did not take heed of his parent's advise.ReplyDelete
Are you aware of the statement by the Selangor Govt two days ago that BN under Toyo awarded $273 million of direct nego construction contracts to Shamsuddin Haryoni and his companies?
Haryoni is the guy who sold his $6.5 million land to Toyo for $3.5 million which led to graft charges against Toyo by MACC. Wouldn't you for $273 million quid pro quo?
How come MACC did not disclose all this earlier? Heh, heh, heh!
we are all of 1 Race, the human race
With A-G big shit wonder anak Toyol will also follow KG & EC ! Peace to the corrupters !ReplyDelete
Keep on corrupting !
Yes I do! All that happens in KL i get it here in real time! How can MACC disclose that direct nego...no direct instructions from their direct political masters to do so yet. When UMNO direct MACC to disclose the direct nego then we know directly that this Tempe Man is dead meat!
