PAS central committee member Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad also asked what was the original price of the land in the Kuala Lumpur city centre, which was previously owned by Pelaburan Hartanah Berhad (PHBB).

The land along Jalan Tun Razak was earmarked for Bumiputeras to increase their property ownership during the administration of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

“Who was the one who directed and ensured the agenda to sell PHBB trophy asset to 1MDB?” asked the former Kuala Selangor federal lawmaker in an interview with The Malaysian Insider.

“It was said the land was allocated to PHBB during Tun Abdullah’s era with the aim of developing it so that Bumiputeras still have an opportunity to invest in prime real estate by way of shares, investments and shariah-compliant Real Estate Investment Trust,” he said.

It was reported that 1MDB only paid RM64 psf when it bought the 30ha from Putrajaya four years ago.

Dzulkefly also asked what other compensation or lands Putrajaya gave to PHBB in return for selling its land to 1MDB.

    First and foremost the sales of land reserved for Malays will undoubtedly make 1MDB a very very profitable organization. At least that was the intention and will make those who are managing it looks very efficient. It is just like taking money from the left pocket and put it into the right pocket. This is not smart but sheet deceit which is Umno style ! Also in the meantime all those involve in 1MBD will continue to get paid and I might also add to day handsomely, very handsomely.
    This kind of deceit will continue unless all the Umno schmucks are kicked out of Putrajaya soon and I mean very soon and most of all don’t forget to do that to all the cronies too !
