Mysterious Overpayment for Police Housing Project
27th July 2003, NST
The Anti Corruption Agency is investigating the involvement of Home Ministry officials in the “mysterious” payout of government funds for a failed RM18 million police housing project in Batu Pahat.
The Ministry records showed that since the project was launched in 1996, RM16 million was paid to the contractor even though the project was stalled for almost 4 years.
The payments also did not tally with the 242 houses that were supposed to have been built, as the project was short of 70 units.
The ACA had not made any arrest to-date.
