Guan Eng dismisses report that his office was 'closed'


GEORGE TOWN: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has denied that his office at Komtar was closed for a few hours on Thursday (Jan 11) due to a raid by the Malaysian Anti- Corruption Commission (MACC).

"My office was open as I was meeting PKR and Amanah leaders and the report saying it was closed is false and slanderous," said Lim at Komtar on Friday.

He was referring to an article in a Malay news portal which reported that his office was "closed" temporarily following a raid by the MACC over the Penang undersea tunnel project.

Lim claimed the report was aimed at tarnishing the name of the state government but added that he would not take any action against the portal.
