SETIU: The Anti-Corruption Agency has been urged to investigate all cases of abandoned police housing projects which have caused the Government to suffer major losses, said Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Noh Omar. 

He cited as an example the abandoned RM12.6mil Setiu Police District Headquarters project, which was supposed to be completed in December 2000. Works on the project to provide housing to 179 police personnel began in 1998. 

“With the contractor's failure to complete the project, we incur losses up to RM2.1mil as we have to pay about RM30,000 a month in rent for the Setiu headquarters,” he said after visiting the abandoned project here yesterday. 

Noh said the contractor only completed 45% of the project, causing the Government to incur losses of nearly RM10mil comprising RM7.5mil payment to the contractor and the RM2.1mil in rent. – Bernama
