PENANG, MALAYSIA: The new Penang government is starting ts own probe into dubious land deals of the past as it is not happy the one done by the Anti-Corruption Agency but it will first wait for a written report from the ACA.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said Friday (28 Mar) he had been briefed by Penang ACA director Nooraziah Abdul Manap had briefed him this morning about the agency's investigation into the case, but he was not satisfied with it.

He said a special panel headed by Deputy Chief Minister Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin would begin its investigations next week to determine the type of action that could be taken.

Speaking at a news conference at his office, Lim said, the briefing by the ACA director had given the state government a much clearer picture about the case, which had been investigated by the ACA from 2003.

"The ACA completed its investigations two years ago and we are now awaiting the official report. From the information received, there were many people involved. Let's wait for the findings," he said.

Lim did not give any details of the alleged dubious land deals. He said the state government wanted a more concrete action to be taken to ensure such improprieties, which had caused huge loses to the state, would not recur. Meanwhile, Lim said, he would meet Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdulah Ahmad Badawi in Putrajaya next Thursday (3 Apr) to discuss state-federal relations.

Lim said he wanted ties between both governments to continue even though there were changes in the state government's leadership. At the meeting, he said, he would request that projects planned by the Federal government in Penang, be continued so long as they benefited the people.
