Adenan’s insistence to sell the 267-acre MJC land at the price of RM115 million only will be a permanent stigma of his government.
He may think that he has “checkmated” me by insisting that I first disclose the name of the intended purchaser who has proposed to purchase the land for RM620 million before he even consider the development plan submitted by the said intended purchaser.
However, the general public views it differently.
All Sarawakian are aware of the usual Barisan Nasional’s oppressive tactic against DAP’s supporters and sympathisers, especially when it comes to businessmen and property developers.
As such, the intended purchaser who submitted the proposal to buy the land at the price of RM620 million has insisted that I must not disclose his name unless Adenan shows some form of goodwill and sincerity by approving in principle the plan that he proposed.
By merely indicating an approval in principle and accepting the intended purchaser’s offer, the State Government will get an additional RM505 million. Is that too much to ask of Adenan for an additional RM505 million revenue for the State Government?
Whatever excuses that Adenan may give, ultimately, the key issue is clear.
It is a matter of selling the 267 acres of State land at the price of RM115 million or RM620 million and Adenan chose to sell it at RM115 million only. Why did he do that? It does not make logical sense. Is he subject to control by someone higher?
At the end of the day, the people of Sarawak lost RM505 million which becomes the profits of the 2 shareholders of Standard Parade Development Sdn Bhd, the BN cronies.
Clearly, Adenan cannot exonerate himself by claiming that the deal was entered into by the previous Administration. The Sale and Purchase Agreement was signed by the Government on 8-3-2014 which is after he became the Chief Minister of Sarawak.
This land deal is a rip-off on the people of Sarawak and Adenan is condoning such rip-off to happen right under his nose. This will go down record of Sarawak history as a stigma in Adenan’s government.
Meanwhile, I will continue to exert pressure on the MACC to expedite the investigation of the matter.
