GEORGE TOWN: Businesswoman Phang Li Koon (pic) has arrived at the George Town district police headquarters to assist in the investigation over her statutory declaration (SD) about the sale of her bungalow in Pinhorn Road to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.  

A video journalist spotted Phang, 39, arriving in a luxury car at the police station located in Patani Road at around 9.30am Friday accompanied by a man, who is believed to be her lawyer.  

George Town OCPD Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid confirmed that Phang was at the police station to assist in the probe.  

Meanwhile, another press conference was held in front of the police station by Penang Umno Youth vice-chief Jasmin Noordin.

In his press conference, Jasmin said he had lodged a police report and urged the authorities to investigate the relationship between the appointment of Tan Chiew Choon, a senior manager of a firm in which Phang had 20% stake, and his appointment as municipal councillor in 2015. 

On Thursday, state police chief Comm Datuk Abdul Ghafar Rajab said Phang’s statement would be recorded today.  

He said besides Phang, police had also called four other indivi­duals, including the Commissioner of Oaths 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. 

She also said that she has no business relationship with the state government.
