PUTRAJAYA – If the sales transaction for a piece of land by Tabung Haji in Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) can be cancelled, it should be done to avoid negative perception by depositors, said Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin.
“If it can be cancelled, please cancel it, (this) is not a question of investment, all kinds of investment can be done but this is a question of perception.
“Let us not raise doubts among the depositors, (they) ordinary makcik (aunty) pakcik (uncle) are ordinary folks who deposit RM100…RM200,” Khairy, who is also Youth and Sports Minister, told reporters after the ‘9 to 5′ Young Workers’ Run here Saturday.
In a statement yesterday, Umno Youth expressed concern on the purchase of the land by Tabung Haji from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) valued at RM188.5 million.
Khairy said he would also voice his personal views and concern on the matter to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Friday. – BERNAMA
