Australian police have charged a property developer for allegedly paying A$4.75 million ($3.45 million) in bribes to Malaysian government officials.

The 68-year-old man is accused of selling a student hostel he developed in Melbourne to a Malaysian government-owned entity (MARA?) at an inflated price of A$22.6 million , with the bribes paid to arrange the sale.

Will our MACC investigate the Malaysian officials involved?

To attract rich and famous from overseas to create jobs for B40 in Johor?

So far little news on Iskandar project. Maybe less inflow of money from PRC?

Subang – no poorer voter staying? The poor need better facilities or better transport, How about subsidised food courts and reduced food price. Students can cari makan working part time instead employing migrants.

Should also provide libraries with free wifi for poor students from B40 families to study online, else more will climb trees for internet access. I suppose a reinstated library at Bayan Baru would not be considered a mega project.
