The Declassification Of Documents Relating To Kg Buah Pala

The Declassification Of Documents Relating To Of The Chronology Of BN Penang EXCO Decisions Prove Beyond A Shadow Of Doubt That Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon And His UMNO, MCA, MIC And Gerakan Cohorts Had Robbed Kampung Buah Pala Residents Of Their Land Without Consulting Them.

The Pakatan Rakyat Penang State EXCO had in yesterday meeting decided after consulting and getting approval from the State Legal Advisor, to declassify and reveal the decisions behind the BN State EXCO led by the present Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon in alienating Kampung Buah Pala to Koperasi Pegawai Kerajaan Pulau Pinang.

The chronology of events prove beyond a shadow of doubt that Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon And His UMNO, MCA, MIC and Gerakan cohorts had robbed Kampung Buah Pala residents of their land without consulting them. The state government land of Kampung Buah Pala was approved to Koperasi Pegawai Kerajaan Pulau Pinang twice by the BN Penang state EXCO led by Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon on 18.8.2004 and 8.6.2005 with a premium of RM 6.42 million or RM 20 per square feet which was then subsequently reduced further to only RM 3.21 million or RM 10 per square feet. So far Koh Tsu Koon has not explained why he approved this project without consulting the residents or selling it to Koperasi at such a low price.

Instead of training their guns and questions on the land robbers of Kampung Buah Pala, collaborators of BN had orchestrated a smear campaign through the control of the mass media against the new Penang State government as being responsible when full assistance within the confines of the law had been given. If BN was in power now and not PR, the residents would have been evicted and Kampung Buah Pala would have been demolished since last year.

Will Continue To Try To Get The Kampung Buah Pala Residents To Meet Without Being Manipulated By Certain Irresponsible Targetting The State Government To Distract Attention From Those Who Robbed Their Land.

The refusal by some of the residents of Kampung Buah Pala to meet with me and the Penang state government yesterday is regrettable and displays an aggression, hostility and even arrogance that is puzzling. Questions are raised why one or two of the so-called leaders of the residents are now so defensive of BN and anti-PR, particularly anti-DAP. Why is this aggression targeted against the PR government that is trying to help them? In contrast not a single demonstration or action is taken against the BN land robbers who deprived them of their rights.

The refusal to meet me appears deliberately staged by using the flimsy ground of denying their lawyers to be present when their legal counsel, Cecil Rajendra was also present. Sadly this was also not published in the BN controlled media even though Cecil Rajendra was present with me at the press conference yesterday.

I wish to appeal to the residents not to be manipulated by certain irresponsible parties but to come and meet me for a heart to heart talks. By refusing to meet, the residents are playing into the hands of the land robbers who want to these talks to fail, the residents evicted, their houses demolished and PR blamed. Unlike BN, the PR government has not cheated the residents of a single inch of their land and will try out all legal avenues suggested by their legal counsel, Cecil Rajendra. Time is running out and the residents should distinguish between those who are sincere in helping them against those who are distracting attention from the real culprits who robbed them of their land.

  1. a bit out of topic but i just want to share my view.

    federal government doesn’t want to help? fine. but give back income tax paid by penang people to state government so that those money can be use to help penang people.

  2. It is a sad to see the latest developement of Kg Buah Pala issue.

    The whole thing is now looks more of a political issue than a land issue! The resident are now bitting the hand that wanted to help them! The more you help them, the harder they stab you…that is the scenario now!

    They refuse to acknowledge that if not for the state government intervation, their house would have been GONE by now!

    My suggestion is that, maybe the state government should concentrate on meeting those resident who are interested in solving the problem individually than in group as the “people” who have political agenda one might influence them.

  3. Mr. Lim
    You are unfairly held responsible for the Kg Buah Pala issue. The real culprit should be BN, particularly Koh Tsu Khoon who cheated the Kg Buah Pala residents and runaway, now has the cheek to blame you for not being able to solve the problem as a chief minister. This bustard deserve to be kicked out of Penang and dump into the Straits of Malacca.

    For a price of RM3.21 millions, if he had consulted the Kg Buah Pala residents before “lelong” to the Kooperasi, I think the residents would have no problem in buying up. For an initial total of 45 families in the kampung, RM3.21 millions only work out to be a miserable RM71,333 each family has to pay. Who in this world will not be willing to pay this “chicken feed” sum for such a choice area? I believe if every family in the Kg Buah Pala were offered the opportunity to purchase the land which they had been living for generations at such “dirt cheap” price they will not have hesitated to buy up even to the extent of pawning their trousers man! I think Tsue Khoon had committed the most heinous crime on earth in destroying the families of Kg Buah Pala. I hope the remaining residents in Kg Buah Pala keep their cool and remain rational in their fight for their survival. Never be fanned up the unscrupulous elements out to make use of them to gain their own popularity. Now “nasi sudah jadi bubur” by the great “chef” Tsu Khoon. We can only hope Guan Eng can strike an amicable solution to our Kg Buah Pala residents. Please Guan Eng a chance to get a good deal for the residents.
