Mayor Tan Sri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz has instructed his officers to cooperate fully with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) following a raid on the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) headquarters.

It was reported that several MACC officers arrived and raided the Economic Planning and Development Department at around 2pm and left at 4pm yesterday (June 5).

The officers seized eight trolleys full of files that filled a truck.

Asked if the raid was related to a probe into the sale of 64 parcels of land by DBKL, Mohd Amin said, “Most probably” but declined to elaborate.

“I have instructed my officers to provide all the necessary documents and assist the MACC officers,” he said.

Several Kuala Lumpur MPs filed a complaint with MACC on May 16 to investigate the 64 plots of land deals involving a total of 170ha and transactions worth RM4.28 billion that were sold to the private sector without an open tender process.

Reportedly, most of the buyers had yet to pay the land premium even though buildings had been constructed and sold, and many had not paid development charges either.

Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor was Federal Territories Minister when the land sales happened.

Previously, Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng claimed that 25% of the land, amounting to 37.24ha (16 out of 64 parcels) and sold by DBKL, went to a single property developer for RM785 million.

Two other companies, he said, were also involved in deals amounting to five parcels at RM858.36 million and four at RM68.17 million.
