PORT DICKSON (Bernama): Port Dickson MP Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has warned that he will cancel any projects in the constituency found to have elements of corruption or kickbacks by developers.  

The former Finance minister said this was among the things he had pointed out to the parties involved in a proposal to build resorts in the area.

He said if all parties complied with the rules, the implementation of the projects could be carried out much faster, apart from being more cost-effective.

"If I hear of someone giving or receiving commissions, I will cancel the project. Don't take other people's money," he said during a dinner with 200 military veterans at the Bagan Pinang Hall near here today.

In the meantime, Anwar, who is also PKR president-elect, said he had set three conditions for companies looking to develop hotels in Port Dickson.

These are: cleaning up the beach area near the hotel, creating job opportunities for locals and providing accomodation for employees . -- Bernama
