BUTTERWORTH: Former Penang chief minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon will answer in the near future, queries over land sale when Barisan Nasional (BN) ruled the state.
Koh, the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, said he needed to examine reports on the sale before explaining to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng as required.
"I will give Lim the answer in the near future but I don't have the files now because we left the files at the Chief Minister's Office. I need to read the reports and examine the files.
"By right, he (Lim) needs no clarification from us (the previous state government) because all he wants are in the files at his office," he told reporters after a ceremony to hand over the 2012 Budget Special Fund to northern zone missionary schools here.
He said this when asked to comment on Lim wanting the previous state government to clarify issues on land sale carried out under BN if they wanted the current chief minister to explain the land issue in Taman Manggis, Jalan Zainal Abidin.
According to the original plan of the previous Barisan government, the empty 0.45 hectare land in Taman Manggis was for the second phase of 272 units of affordable homes after 320 units in phase one was completed, several years ago. - Bernama
