Selangor civil servants owning low-cost housing units will be quizzed, says MB

SHAH ALAM: Selangor civil servants who own low-cost housing units in the state will be called up for questioning, said Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

"If we find that they are ineligible to own the units and there are elements of abuse, severe action will be taken against them.

"These irresponsible civil servants will also be made to surrender the units so that they can be resold to deserving people," he said in a statement here on May 27.

Khalid said the state executive council at its meeting on May 27 also decided to review cases of awarding of low-cost units in the state to as far back as 2004 to find out in more detail if such units had been offered for sale according to procedures.

He said that the state's Housing and Real Estate Board in future would closely monitor the awarding of low-cost housing units to stamp out any form of abuse.

He added that the state government would be very firm in ensuring that low-cost housing units would only be sold to eligible buyers. -- Bernama
