GEORGE TOWN: Businesswoman Phang Li Koon spent almost four hours in the George Town District police headquarters, assisting in the investigation over her statutory declaration (SD) about the sale of her bungalow in Pinhorn Road to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

She left the police station located in Petani Road accompanied by two men at around 1.05pm Friday after her statement was recorded.

She earlier arrived in a luxury car at the police station at around 9.30am. 

On Thursday, state police chief Comm Datuk Abdul Ghafar Rajab said besides Phang, police had called four other indivi­duals including the Commissioner of Oath who prepared the SD to give their statements.

Police have so far received more than 10 reports, claiming that Phang's SD was fake as the contents contained some inaccurate information.

It was reported that on March 22, Phang’s SD was read by state executive councillor Phee Boon Poh, who claimed to be a distant relative of Phang and the adviser to the Phang Clan Association.

In the declaration, Phang said she did not survey the market when she decided to sell the house to Lim as she did not think it was necessary.

Phang also said that she had no business relationship with the state government.
