Hulu Selangor> Penjelasan Dato Hj Zainal Abidin Sakom

Terima kasih House PK kerana buat video nie. Ada juga dikalangan anggota yang terkilan apabila kerusi P094 Hulu Selangor diberi kepada MIC. Bagi jentera Parti, rata-rata mahukan UMNO jadi calon. Tapi penjelasan yang dibuat betul-betul oleh Dato Hj Zainal Abidin Sakom amat baik sekali.

    SHAH ALAM, April 13 — The Selangor government disclosed today that the Poverty Eradication Foundation (YBK) and its subsidiaries have misused land allocated to it for commercial purposes, an issue expected to be a major talking point in the Hulu Selangor by-election.

    “A Rawang housing project of 8.5 acres allocated for the housing of Gombak’s poorest was scrapped to develop 410 units of shophouses, medium-cost apartments, and low-cost flats,” said Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim at a press conference today.

    Khalid (picture) was reading from the findings of an internal audit report on the land and properties of YBK.

    A total of 16 lots of land of Permodalan YBK Sdn Bhd (PYBK), one of YBK’s subsidiaries, had been mortgaged or had caveats in the name of individuals and companies, he added.

    “Therefore, the land given to YBK was in danger of falling to a third party,” said Khalid.

    The audit report stated that the financial report uploaded on YBK’s official website did not reveal the mortgaging of properties, nor did it reveal the activities of its subsidiaries.

    Since YBK’s inception in 1990, the private independent foundation has received close to 2,000 acres of land in several districts, as stated in the audit report.

    The audit report also revealed that YBK and its subsidiaries are controlled by its chairman Datuk Zainal Abidin Sakom and his family members while his wife Datin Hartini Osman is one of the directors of YBK.

    In addition, audit findings revealed that projects meant to provide homes to the hardcore poor were occupied by financially stable people.

    Khalid said that the state government would set up a task force after the Hulu Selangor by-election to investigate the findings of the audit report. He added that YBK had prevented auditors from entering their premises to conduct an audit.

    YBK has been beset with controversy since January this year when the foundation did not issue audited reports on its financial accounts and activities for the past five years, as well as reports on how allocations for poverty eradication was spent.

    YBK and its subsidiaries owed the state more than RM7 million in quit rent arrears, as claimed in the state government’s internal audit report. The state government added that YBK had not paid quit rent arrears for 13 years.

    The Selangor government decided to seize the 448 acres of land in Serendah earmarked for a UiTM campus development although Yayasan Melaka had offered to pay RM5.43 million quit rent on behalf of YBK in February this year. The state government had rejected the payment on the basis that Section 98 of the National Land Code stated that quit rent could only be paid by landowners themselves.

    YBK filed a law suit in response, claiming that they had fulfilled requirements for the campus project to be approved by the state planning committee. However, the white paper tabled at the state assembly today stated that neither YBK nor PYBK had submitted proper applications to the state to build the university.
