PETALING JAYA: A meeting of Pakatan Harapan top leaders will be held immediately after the Hari Raya holidays, according to Saifuddin Abdullah, who is Pakatan Harapan (PH) chief secretary.

Saifuddin was quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying that the issues before the PH presidential council meeting would include the corruption case brought against DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.

Lim has been charged with two counts of corruption: one charge is of abuse of power in re-zoning a plot of agricultural land for residential use and another of buying his bungalow in Jalan Pinhorn for RM2.8 million although market valuation was RM4.7 million.

A businesswoman, Phang Li Koon, was charged with abetting Lim.

Earlier today, the Penang state leadership of PH partners pledged their full support for Lim to continue as chief minister, saying there was no need for him to resign or to go on leave pending the outcome of his trial.
