KUALA LUMPUR (July 11): Johor Bahru MP Akmal Nasrullah Mohd Nasir has revealed that there is unfair allocation of low-cost and medium low-cost flats to squatters in the Johor Bahru area.
“There are malpractices or misuse of power in the allocation of the flats and we want to stop this,” he told the media during the Johor Bahru parliamentary Hari Raya open house at SJK(C) Foon Yew 1 in Taman Kebun, reported The Star today.
Akmal explained that there were complaints about those not eligible being allocated the units while eligible candidates could not rent or own the homes.
“Some even rent their units to foreigners, with the owners living elsewhere as they already own houses,” Akmal told The Star.
He said some had more than one house, adding that second or even third units were often rented out.
