PETALING JAYA: A PKR member has lodged a police report against Kedah menteri besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor over the award of a billion-ringgit tourism-related project in Langkawi to a company linked to a bankrupt.
In her police report, Sungai Siput PKR member Indrani Selvakumar alleged that a key figure in the company that was awarded the project was bankrupt, and has been so for several years.
She said this was based on a search she carried out with the insolvency department.
“Sanusi needs to clarify how a project worth over RM1 billion can go to a company where a key figure has been declared a bankrupt,” she said.
“Did he do any background checks?” she asked, demanding that Sanusi clarify the matter.
Indrani also said the individual in question had previously been charged by the Securities Commission for market manipulation.
FMT is withholding the name of the individual concerned pending comment.
Indrani said she would be lodging a report with Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) tomorrow.
FMT has also reached out to Sanusi for comments.
