THE SUTERA HARBOUR RESORT PROJECT, SEMBULAN
Kota Kinabalu, 13th October 2011:- Datuk Edward Ong, President of Sutera Harbour Resort today released a press statement in response to Datuk Yong Teck Lee’s statement in the local newspapers dated 12 October 2011. Read the statement here.
Datuk Ong expressed his regret over Datuk Yong’s claim for having introduced amendments to Sabah’s relevant laws to curb the Chief Minister’s powers over land, forest and mining matters in order “to prevent abuse by future CMs”.
Datuk Ong elaborated ‘Datuk Yong had made a similar statement in the local papers in 1996 pertaining to this matter when he was the Chief Minister to which I had publicly replied immediately. Datuk Yong was the then Chief Minister and he certainly had the authority to take the appropriate action if he felt that the alienation of the land was not above board.’
Datuk Edward Ong in his press statement to the media stated that the documents and previous press clippings of Datuk Yong’s claim are being made available for the media to obtain a copy.
