GEORGE TOWN: Government strategic fund 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) only holds 20% or 23.47 acres (9.5ha) of the 116.89 acres of freehold land it purchased in Air Itam in 2013, revealed Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng last Friday.

He also revealed that the state could not locate on state records the remaining 117.11 acres of the total 234 acres of land which 1MDB claimed to have purchased in Penang.

“We searched everywhere in the Land and Mines Office records but could not find the remaining acreage (117.11 acres). All we found were 116.89 acres. And from that, we learnt that 1MDB only owns 20% or 23.47 acres in the state. It is shocking that 1MDB bought the three pieces of land with a high price of RM1.08 billion.

“Our checks showed that 1MDB only holds one quarter or 15.09 acres on Grant No 43187 (Lot 1561), one quarter or 3.87 acres on Grant No 53264 (Lot 1584), and 4.51 acres on Grant No 4661 (Lot 1457).

We want clarification why 1MDB bought land without 100% equityWould RM1.08b float away just like that?” he saidJuly 13, 2015, letter issued by state’s Land and Mines Office to Arul KandaJuly 23, land and mines contacted Arul Kanda no official response was received.

he verbally said he would come but no follow-up since,” he added.

Sept 20 The Edge revealed 1MDB land deals acquisition of undivided shares in plots of land.
13th GE Najib announced build 9,999 units housing in Air Itam

My comments :  My question is this : why exactly 9,999 apartment units? Why not a nice round number 10,000 units?You want to know the answer ? Because it does not matter. 9,999 units or 10,001 units – who cares? They are not going to be built, not in the fellow’s lifetime. 

I recall handling a land transaction involving about 200 acres in Kedah. It was for our power plant (IPP) that we built. We bought the land from Boustead Holdings. The guy handling the transaction in Boustead was jittery about the procedures for making the payments. We were jittery too because we did not want to be delayed. On top of it all the banks’  were financing it and the banks’ had their lawyers ready to put a charge on the land. Quite water tight. 

When you buy and sell land, you buy and sell the land titles – which are pieces of paper.  All the relevant information is on the land titles, including the size or area and the location coordinates.

You can get a professional land surveyor to map out the place to make sure that the information on the land title matches the actual land on the ground.   Just to make sure the land has not been swallowed by the neighbor’s fence or a road has not been built through the property or even if a river has not changed course and eaten up some of the land. These things can and do happen.

I bought a property once where the neighbor’s 40 year old retaining wall ‘makan’ three feet along one entire side of the land. In another case the local  council “confiscated” five feet along the entire length of the front for road expansion.  

So you pay attention to things like this before you pay a single sen.  
Now Guan Eng says these idiots paid a total RM1.08 billion of our taxpayers money but they only have 100% equity in 23.5 acres !!  Balance 200+ acres mana pergi? 9,999 units of houses mana pergi? Land was transacted in 2013. This is 2017.Only the Chinese people (DAP, The Edge etc) seem to fully understand what is going on?Malam ini malam Jumaat. People will be preoccupied with other things. A more simpler existence.
