Yeoh told not to further comment on the matter.

Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to update the public regularly on its investigation of Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor and the Federal Territories Foundation (YWP) over a Taman Rimba Kiara land deal.

She said she was informed by the MACC that it has opened a file on the matter and is pursuing investigations, but added that the commission urged her to refrain from further public comments on the matter.

Yeoh had campaigned on undoing the dubious land deal ahead of the general election.

“In Kuala Lumpur, I know a lot of people want to know the status (of the investigation) and I hope the MACC will give updates on it, especially former federal territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor’s role in it,” she said at her parliamentary office yesterday.

On May 16, Yeoh and Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng lodged reports with the MACC to seek a probe into the sale of 64 parcels of land totalling 170ha and worth RM4.8 billion without open tender, including the one in Taman Rimba Kiara.

A statement issued by Save Taman Rimba Kiara Group claimed YWP procured 4.86ha of Taman Rimba Kiara land in 2014 and entered a joint venture with a developer for a proposed mixed development of luxury condos and affordable housing block.

The plan involves the construction of 2,000 units of high-end apartments and 350 units of affordable housing for the Bukit Kiara longhouse dwellers.

Tengku Adnan previously denied allegations of irregularity and said YWP was not involved in the deal and that he had no knowledge of the park’s land in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI), Kuala Lumpur.
