The two suspects being led out of the magistrate's court after they were remanded in Malacca on March 20
MALACCA: A Malacca DAP assemblyman's aide and a businessman have been remanded for three days over a dubious Kelantan land deal.
The duo, aged 54 and 29, were produced before magistrate Analia Kamaruddin at the Ayer Keroh magistrate's court Monday.
The two were remanded to assist in the probe under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property.
On March 8, former Malacca DAP chairman Goh Leong San dropped a bombshell at the Malacca assembly proceedings when he alleged that two former party colleagues, including the aide of an Opposition assemblymen, were involved in corruption and intimidation.
Goh, who is independent Duyong assemblyman, told the assembly that the alleged cheating involved about RM1mil.
He said a police report was lodged on Dec 14 last year by three Malacca smallholders who had lost their hard-earned money in the supposed 220ha land deal in Kelantan.
Goh said the victims paid almost RM1mil to a DAP assemblyman’s aide and a Kelantan PAS Youth leader in the deal made in 2012.
