PETALING JAYA: Mayor Tan Sri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz said full cooperation will be given to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers following a raid on the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) headquarters on Tuesday (June 5).  

"We were not informed about the raid, but MACC officers do come to DBKL to check from time to time," he said.  

Asked if the raid was related to an investigation involving the sale of 64 parcels of land by DBKL, he merely said, "most probably", and declined to reveal more.

"I have instructed my officers to provide all the necessary documents and assist MACC officers in their investigations," the KL mayor added.  

It is understood that MACC officers had loaded a truck with documents allegedly linked to the sale of 64 lots of DBKL land to the Federal Territories Foundation (YWP) between 2014 and 2018.  

Several Kuala Lumpur MPs filed a complaint with MACC on May 16 to investigate the land deals involving a total of 170ha and transactions worth RM4.28bil.  

Previously, Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng claimed that 25% of the land sold by DBKL - 16 out of 64 parcels - went to a single property developer for RM785mil for 37.24ha.

Two other companies, he said, were also involved in deals totalling five parcels at RM858.36mil and four at RM68.17mil.
