KUALA LUMPUR (July 13): Perak Public Facility, Infrastructure, Agriculture and Farming exco Abdul Yunus Jamahri has been accused of trying to solicit “commission” from two companies over bids for state land of about 93 acres, Malaysiakini reported today.
Beh Yong Kean, who was special officer for Abdul Yunus, today lodged a police report alleging that Abdul Yunus planned to “offer his support to the two companies” in exchange for a “commission”, said the news portal.
The report also stated that Beh revealed that Abdul Yunus “leaked minutes of a state government meeting to him so that he could initiate the negotiation process with the two companies”.
“On Oct 4, 2018, at around 9.30pm at the Kuala Kurau ADUN service centre, Abdul Yunus leaked the minutes of a Perak state government meeting to me in order to start negotiations with [two companies] for the application of possession of state land that was 63 acres in Bagan Tiang and 30 acres in Kuala Kurau.
“He instructed me to ask for commission from both companies for his support in the state government meeting,” Beh wrote in a police report that was seen by Malaysiakini.
“I hope the police will investigate this fairly without looking at his position within the government,” Beh later told the news portal.
Abdul Yunus is also assemblyman for Kuala Kurau.
