Nizar: Pakatan reps must declare assets - NST

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar says no deadline set

KUALA KANGSAR: May 30, 2008

All state executive councillors and Pakatan Rakyat state assemblymen must declare their assets, said Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin.

The deadline for submission has yet to be decided as the state government has not received the specific form for asset declaration, which was being distributed by the federal government through the Anti-Corruption Agency, he said.

"As soon as we receive the form, we will distribute it," he told reporters after visiting the Kuala Kangsar Land Office here yesterday.

However, he said the Perak state government had not made any official application to the ACA for the forms.

On other matters, he said Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad agreed to pay RM300 in monthly subsidies for two years to 500 families in Perak who were squatting on land which would be used for the Ipoh-Padang Besar double-tracking system.

Each family would also receive an additional RM1,000 for agreeing to the relocation.

The state government was now preparing suitable housing lots for the affected squatters to ensure that they would be relocated to a better living environment.

"We will speed up this process so that the double-tracking system will be finished quickly."

A surau and two temples would also be relocated, he added
