POA was signed by Daim without the cabinet approval

POA was signed by Former Finance Minister, Daim without the cabinet approval according to Mahathir.

This is just another betrayal case from UMNO politicians who shamelessly sold off Malaysia. Other two cases are agreement to bring Batu Puteh dispute to International Court of Justice and signed off oil field to Brunei

Go figure out yourself the amount of money paid to UMNO politicians by some foreign countries.

POA solution on railway land historic: Lee

By Tengku Noor Shamsiah Tengku Abdullah

SINGAPORE, July 1 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong today attributed the successful implementation of the Points of Agreement (POA) on Malayan Railway land in the city state as a historic breakthrough in Singapore-Malaysia ties.

Lee said that with the closing of this chapter, “our countries can now move ahead to advance our many shared interests.”

“The amicable resolution of a bilateral issue which has remained outstanding for almost 20 years is of great significance,” he said when commenting on the implementation of the POA.

Lee said: “Today, we mark a historic breakthrough in our bilateral relations.

“I would like to thank Prime Minister Najib Razak for his leadership and determination, which has enabled us to work out a win-win deal and move our relationship forward.”

Lee also thanked ministers and officials on both sides, saying that their hard work and good cooperation led to the successful implementation of the agreement.

After 80 years of faithful service, the curtains came down on the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) Tanjung Pagar railway station here Thursday night.

It was a poignant scene at the station’s platforms when the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, himself drove out the last train from the station at 11 pm, marking the end of a long chapter in KTMB history.

The Singapore government will preserve the Tanjong Pagar railway station due to its deep historical significance.

At their Retreat on May 24 last year, prime ministers Lee and Najib announced in their Joint Statement that the KTMB station would be relocated from Tanjong Pagar to the Woodlands Train Checkpoint (WTCP) effective today.

Both leaders had also agreed that the Tanjong Pagar railway station passenger terminal building would be conserved, given its historical significance.

The old Bukit Timah railway station building at Blackmore Drive would also be preserved.

With the relocation of the KTMB station from Tanjong Pagar to WTCP, both the Tanjong Pagar and Bukit Timah railway station have ceased to operate as KTMB railway facilities.
