The People waited for 2 years.
Finally, the White Paper on Talam was released by Menteri Besar Khalid yesterday, with the objectives to clear the name of Selangor State Government from the allegations of bailing out Talam and cheating the public with improper valuations.
The People want to see whether the White Paper would address all the questionable overvaluations exposed by MCA Chua Tee Yong or it is merely another paper like the KPMG report which is trying to divert the public’s attention from the overvaluation and bail out.
Malaysia People hope the Selangor State Government will not disappoint the people again this time.
PUTRAJAYA: The Selangor state government came under fire for deceiving the public with a KPMG audit report to absolve itself of the Talam Corporation debt recovery exercise controversy.
MCA Young Professional Bureau chief Datuk Chua Tee Yong said the report prepared by a private entity was a waste of taxpayer money, as the scope of work did not include valuation aspects and legal implications.
“The main issue is valuation,” he said, explaining that the KPMG report showed that the State Government did not provide JPPH (Property and Valuation Services Department) valuation reports to enable KPMG to make a comparison with the valuation made by private surveyors.
“This shows that the Pakatan Rakyat government is not being transparent,” he told a press conference at Wisma Tani here Wednesday.
On the White Paper tabled at the Selangor state assembly, Chua said he would comment later.
“The matter is still being debated at the assembly,” he said, adding he would provide feedback after the report was finalised.
