Buyers of abandoned housing projects lodge report with MACC

PUTRAJAYA (Jan 25): Fifty of the more than 1,200 buyers of abandoned housing projects in Pulau Indah, Port Klang, Selangor on Wednesday filed a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) here for alleged corruption.


However, only two were allowed to enter the office to lodge reports on behalf of the other victims.


Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM) activist Abdul Karim Said, 57, said they came to the MACC office today to help the buyers make the report.


"We hope the MACC can investigate this matter so that those involved will get justice," he said.


A buyer, Salmah Bakri, 38, said the MACC and Selangor government must take action as the projects were left abandoned for almost 10 years.


She added that her husband had paid installments from 2002 until 2005, but the project had yet to take off. — Bernama
