Kampung Buah Pala Scandal :: LGE should explain this mysterious event

LGE and his gang always argued with a half-truth fact that Penang state government has to pay out compensation if he canceled the land deal negotiated by the previous BN government.

The reality check is Lim Guan Eng had the golden opportunity to reject the land deal because the payment from the koperasi was not fulfilled as per 30-day grace period.

As a matter of fact no compensation to buyer is needed if the buyer defaults the purchase agreement.

Somehow, he chose to ink the deal for the reasons only know to him. LGE should explain to public members and Kampung Buah Pala residents on this mysterious event.

PENANG, Wednesday 26 January 2011 (Bernama) — A group of Kampung Buah Pala residents who had to evict two years ago, claimed that they have yet to receive compensation as promised.

Kampung Buah Pala Residents Association chairperson M. Sugumaran said he and nine other families were disappointed with the state government because it has claimed that the issue of compensation for Kampung Buah Pala has been resolved.

“We were surprised to see a banner with pictures of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Deputy Chief Minister II P. Ramasamy at Jalan Utama. The banner claimed Kampung Buah Pala were thankful to the state government for resolving the Kampung Buah Pala issue,” he told reporters here today.

Sugumaran said though the developers have not fulfilled their promise, attempts to discuss the plight of the villagers had also failed, since he was barred from entering the state government building.

Thirty three families living in the village for more than 100 years were forced to evict when the land was sold by the state government to a cooperative while the cooperative later sold it to a developer.

Kampung Buah Pala became an issue after the Federal Court issued an order for the 23 families living on the 2.6ha land, dubbed High Chaparral, to vacate it by 2 Aug 2009.
