Kampung Buah Pala: A postscript

128
529

The project details for the property development at the site of the demolished Kampung Buah Pala have been put on public display.


I am not quite sure how the compensation of double-storey terrace houses for the displaced Kg Buah Pala residents fits into the compensation details shown on the board above. And 53 units?

The board shows that the building plan was approved on 7 December 2006. The double-storey terrace-house offers were made to the residents last year.

The developer Nusmetro Ventures (P) Sdn Bhd’s main contractor is Wabina Construction & Engineering Sdn Bhd.

Who is behind Wabina? Have a look at the firm’s company profile on its website here.

Wabina’s current projects include the controversial Surin condominium project (developed by GLM Property Development Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bolton Bhd) in Tanjung Bunga.

Hi Anil,
Please provide an update on the Kampung Buah Pala issue. It looks like an encouraging ending.

MalaysianinNewyork@gmail.com

Yang, This is what it is isn’t it, your vindication, what do you really serve or shall i say who do you real serve, Steven and the 9 other who won’t get anything. Damn, you are so cock sure, how you can dictate the plight of the deprived. What has been or the struggle that has been or what has not been is no more an issue anymore but how materially it can benefit is the issue. Funny, what is the truth and reality as long as it is justified for your hope with expectation, but never the faith in… Read more »

Do you really put your trust in the words of those machais, MalaysianinNewYork?

The machais we see here are no better than the machais from Pekasa. Their first and only aim is to serve their respective master, rakyat be totally damned.

millipede

It is my fervent hope that people who made comments here will not be so ignorant in the future. Please do your homework, don’t just argue for the sake of arguement. Democracy demands responsibility. If you have time, please visit cj.my, a citizen journalism website. On KBP issue, you can check 3 video recordings on this issue on Feb 12 & 13, Apr 24, 2010. Some of the former KBP villages are my neighbours for now until their houses are completed. Please make intelligent and sensible comments. Thank you.

Hi millipede, As in my earlier comment, I requested that people out there should not jump the gun, i.e. let the developer and owner clarify details about the houses agreed on as compensation to some 24 residents or so, definitely not 53 residents as spinned by some! The residents would be the first ones to protest and take legal avenues if the developer and/or owner are to deny them their houses!! And, I’ll definitely join them in their protest if this is so. I was confident that they would not be so foolish as to renege on a high-profile deal,… Read more »

millipede,
Are you talking about Steven and the 9 other household that did not sign the agreement. Well if they are your neighbour, I can tell you now that they won`t be getting anything at all. Thats is for sure. But if you are talking of the 15 who have signed, just wait and see. They will soon be moving into their brand new home just before election if it is 1 1/2 years from now.

Anil, Let me introduce you to one of the MPPP building staff. After a lengthy discussion with him, they have said that KTK & team did a very good job LEGALLY to transfer the land to the current owners. There was nothing illegal about it. The only issue here was the entire deal was totally unethical. So the people who brokered this deal cannot be brought to court. Sellig State land at a lower price is mismanagement, and only when the element of bribery can be proven then there is a case. Otherwise you have to ACCEPT TOTAL MISMANAGEMENT, which… Read more »

Anil should be an independent candidate in the next GE.

As a MP he can act besides writing blog.

nkkhoo

Agree.

As a non-politician, we can see thing from a neutral, unbiased and without hidden agenda perspective.

Keep digging out worms without fear or favor regardless they are BN or PR.

mut

According to the Star report, there was agreement to the state government’s proposal for the houses to be built. But the details of that are rather sketchy:

1) where are the houses to be built on site? (in relation to the other planned buildings

2) who is going to foot the cost?

Nasir

From my analysis, Anil felt that the compensation is not enough. Maybe he wanted ‘kandang’ for the sacred lembu of Kpg Buah Pala?

I know anil is passionate about Penang. Why not ask Rais yatim when he could give the RM20 million to the Penang Heritage Fund.

kee

Still going on with the “circumstances surrounding the entire deal including who the players involved were and the drivers behind the deal” is like flogging a dead horse. Waste of time and resources. The KBP land scandal is not unique. Similar scams has been going on all over the country. Except for Penang and Selangor they don’t surface because the same crooks are still running the other state governments. We already know the circumstances surrounding (many) the land scams. Crooked politicians together with conniving civil servants alienate state land at way below market prices to their cronies in return for… Read more »

nkkhoo

I also start to learn how to use legality to scare people like you.

RM20 million promised to Penang by Pak Lah was entrusted to Khazanah for the purpose of heritage preservation in Penang.

Don’t lie. The money was given to Penang although not to state government directly. Please respect the rule of law because there is nothing wrong for such special arrangement made by Federal government.

maniam

aiyah!

We live in bolehland.

‘Circumstances surrounding any deal including who the players involved were and the drivers behind the deal’ is highly political and is hidden from public knowledge under OSA.

What do you expect to uncover?

The next thing you will be labeled a CIA agent.

Fancy the curry rice at kamunting?

nkkhoo

I thought PR opposes OSA before they were made government in Penang.

LGE could unclassified ex-BN government cabinet meeting minutes, but unable to release his own cabinet minutes. Why? This is selective disclosure.

Rakyat wants to know who put the final nail on the coffin?

It’s that difficult for LGE to answer a simple question?

kee

nkkhoo,

So you believe that giving money directly to the state government is the same as channeling it through a federal agency? Obviously you don’t know that when Trengganu was under PAS, a big chunk of the money that was channeled through a federal agency (allegedly) ended up in private pockets. The crook was arrested and charged only because unfortunately he offended some big-time UMNO politicians.

The same story in Kelantan except that the pilfering is (allegedly) still going on.

nkkhoo

I’m talking from legal aspect, that is absolutely nothing wrong for Federal Government to do so….

tan, tanjong bungah

Hi everyone, nkkhoo: ” … that is absolutely nothing wrong for Federal Government to do so….” It may be legally above board, but what about the devious intent of the BN Federal Govt? Why doesn’t the Federal Govt do the same to other states under BN control? Why not also channel all funds meant for these States direct to Federal Agencies? So, the idea is to sabotage the PR-controlled states using taxpayers’ money! Wouldn’t such moves hamper the states’ planning and execution of projects, and for Pg, to punish Penangites for their gall to bring in an opposition govt? The… Read more »

PR is no better than BN, PR has no higher moral standing than BN when it comes to policy execution.

PR copied BN for not allocating state funds to BN ADUN in states controlled by PR.

Ya, Anil, I agree with many of the readers here that DAP/LGE has done a great job for the Kg Buah Pala’s folk. If Penang is still under Gerakan/BN, they would end up in the five-foot-way. Anil, please rest the case, as i believe some of the residents would be very happy with the deal. A double storey terrace is a luxury not many of us now can afford. “O”, I agree with you absolutely, these greedy developers they just simply raise their price according to their whimps and fancy. For eg the controversial project, Surin in Tg Bungah, the… Read more »

Anil, It really does fascinates me with some of the respond that you get. Look at LIMBC, is he an authority what a government around the world can do or can’t do? Do you need always need some reassurance. Why bother with around the world when your own backyard needs assurance from its community? Why the reinforced reassurance when it is the truth and reality?. One simple question to date that is not answered, whatever happened to the State Land Committee land fraud investigation in Kg Buah Pala issue that was iniatiated. Can someone give me a straight and truthful… Read more »

Pearl

The straight and truthful answer to the whole mess would (probably) open up a big can of worm for Lim Guan Eng, that is why the finding (or findings) would never be released to the public.

That big can of worm is simply this, it was (the) Lim Guan Eng (administration) who signed away the land title to the developer.

Had (his administration) not put his signature on the land title transfer form, the land of KBP would still fall under the trusteeship of the State Government of Penang, and no development could be started.

SlogInM'sia

Reading the story, sensed you would receive a good number of hits labelling you as racist. Remember, whenever issues centring on Indian poor whose livelihood are threatened and, are highlighted it is always viewed as a racist issue in Malaysia, as correctly pointed by two posters here. This is unfortunate! Remember when you posted your articles on how the natives in Sarawak and Sabah, had the land or resources snatched away from them, no one admonished you did they? But I applaud you, for highlighting the plight of these natives, and I know you will continue to do so, as… Read more »

With all the comments, I can summarise that majority of the commentors would want the PR gov out of Penang.

Pearl

Whether it be a PR government or BN government or a 3rd party government, doesn’t matter.

All we want is a government which (is accountable to) the people.

So far what we got, the Lim Guan Eng administration is as bad as the one he replaces, the Koh Tsu Koon administration.

…. their machais everywhere to do the bullying…

nkkhoo

Don’t be so naive. Many of us hated BN more than you. The difference is I am not a machai with hidden agenda to serve my boss from any political parties. Let focus on the subject, not the parties. KBP fiasco is a gross injustice to its residents. People have to see this issue from the head to tail, and not be diverted by court order to justify an unjust event. No doubt ex-BN government is wrong in this case. LGE and his allies had given no demolition promise before GE12 because they knew BN is wrong to grab KBP… Read more »

Developers cannot arbitrarily raise the price of houses without the approval of the Ministry of Housing. When the developer applies for the developer’s license, the price list is submitted and the developer has to sell according to the price list approved. According to a Ministry official, developers cannot even sell lower than the approved pricelist. This may sound ridiculous but these are the rules stipulated by the Ministry. Hence it would be prudent to find out what is the approved price list and this can be done by calling the Ministry Licensing division ( KPKT in Malay).

LimBC

Dear Anil,
As I have asked you before what you or the state government can do if the land is not yours? Not a single goverment in the world will buy up the land just because your family have stay there for decades. NGO can only tslk because they are not the one going to be responsible at end of the day.

nkkhoo

You (grab) land from someone, and sell it to someone and then you ask why you should buy back the land and return it to its rightful owner….

Pearl

The land belongs to the KBP residents.

It was entrusted to the care of the State Government of Penang.

Koh Tus Koon (administration grabbed) the land and gave it to the private developer, but did not complete the process due to 308.

After 308, (the) Lim Guan Eng (administration) completed the … process by signing away the land title to the developer.

Both (the) Koh Tsu Koona and Lim Guan Eng (administrations) are guilty of the land grab.

kee

Pearl,

Once again, the saying “a little knowledge can be dangerous” applies to you perfectly.

The government approved the KBP land to KPKNPPB with certain conditions attached. Once KPKNPPB has complied with all the conditions they then applied to the land administrator for the land title to be issued to them. They cannot be denied the land title.

Who the CM was at the time of approval and the time of issue of land title is not relevant. It is only politicians and their ignorant followers who try to make what is irrelevant relevant.

Yang

pearl,
the land belong to the KBP resident. Do you know how pathetic your comment is….???? Check your facts right please.

Pearl

That word: “Pathetic”, belongs to the machais.

And I am giving it back to you, machai.

nkkhoo

Let machai hide behind the court order to justify unjust done on KPB residents.

We can say also jail term for LGE many years is a justice served on him.

Plain Truth

It is such an irony that the present state government who got such a good deal for the residents are painted as villians while the no question is being asked of the political eunuch Koh Tsu Koon who approved of this project in the first place.

Let’s face it. If KTK is still the Penang CM, all these families would have been kicked out into the streets long ago instead of having a brand new double storey house each.

Pearl

Why don’t you change your name to “Plain Lie” instead?

Trying to deflect the entire matter to Koh Tsu Koon … while it was (whose) signature on the land title transfer document?

Nice try, no cigar.

Plain Truth

spin spin spin.

No amount of spin is going to alter the fact that the state land was sold by KTK at a pittance.

The vast majority of Penangites have one thing in common with the likes of Ahmad Ismail :-

…….an absolute contempt for that political eunuch.

kee

Pearl, The saying “a little knowledge can be dangerous” applies to you perfectly. You won’t see and find the signatures, either of the previous CM KTK or the present CM LGE on the land title transfer documents. The only signatures are those of civil servants. If you have any knowledge at all of our land laws you will realise that civil servants put their signatures on the relevant documents based on decisions made by the state authority. The decision to alienate the KBP land to KPKNPPB was made by your hero Koh Tsu Koon’s previous state government. And if you… Read more »

nkkhoo

Agree, a little knowledge can be dangerous. But hiding the truth from public knowledge is more damaging.

There is a solid point highlighted by many of us. Can LGE explains to rakyat whom without knowledge about this fishy deal?

IF the buyer did not pay full amount in time, why LGE cannot instruct civil servant to cancel the deal?

I’m still awaiting answer for this simple question for over a year. Please stop spinning and dragging other issues.

Based on anil argument, we can all be squatters and get compensation from the government when the time is right.

He is advocating a lawless society.

I lost my respect for him to be a colored champion.

Anil,
First of all, isn`t the topic about KBP. And are not the folk being compensated with a double storey house and RM8,000/= cash for relocating. On top of that those who have sign on earlier not only get a double storey house but also get to keep the cash of RM60,000/ they have been given earlier. So please tell me what is proper and affordable housing.

Anil, I don’t understand why you always end up asking this one and the same question: “what was the outcome of the committee set up to investigate the deal?” The outcome as I read in both the MSM and internet news was that the highest court of the country had decided that the alienation of the land on which KBP was situated was legal and that KPKNPPB is the legal registered owner of the KBP land and that the state government has got no other choice but to honour the rights of the legal registered owner.

You “keep wondering what was the outcome of the State Land Committee’s investigation”. Just because you are not aware of the outcome does not mean that there was no outcome. First of all there was never a “land transfer”. A “land transfer” is a transaction where a privately owned land is transferred from the existing registered owner to a new owner. The land on which KBP Village used to be was STATE LAND, & not PRIVATE LAND. Koperasi Pegawai Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang Berhad became the owner of the KBP land not by a “fraudulent Land transfer”, but by an… Read more »

Pearl,
Have you forgotton about the Court order. ????

How much the land was worth at time of alienation, how much it is now worth and the price the land was alienated is not relevant to the fact that the alienation was done legally. The legality of the alienation was not decided by the present state government. Neither you, I or the whole population of Malaysia can decide on it’s legality. Our judges decided that it was legal and the state government had no choice but to accept that decision. Continuing to harp on the indecent way-below-market price the land was alienated serves absolutely no purpose. Once the judges… Read more »

Just because you are not aware of the outcome does not mean that there was no outcome.

Not everyone in Penang is low on conscience. Mr. Anil’s blog has attracted a lot of machais … of (the present Penang) administration that is why you see so many lies being spread here, all with the same theme – that the KBP residents are “squatters”, that “squatters” don’t deserve anything.

In this respect, these … machais are not that different from the BN machais, or are they?

The Penang Government is viewing the Kampung Buah Pala squatters problem as “just another rubbish”. What is happening to the Caring Government Concept? Or are they caring more for the developers?

The poors have been neglected by the past Barisan Government. And the Pakatan Government is nothing better! It is time that the NGOs start thinking about forming a third force to rubbish these nonsence Power Crazy… under the falsehood of CARING, CARING …..caring for who?
