SEREMBAN: The Pakatan Harapan candidate for the Rantau by-election called on Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan to explain how did he get RM10million to purchase his apartment in London, United Kingdom when he was the Negri Sembilan mentri besar in 2008.
“How did he get the RM10mil? Why didn’t he go through a proper channel such as a bank?
“Can he prove to us how he managed to obtain the money and what his source of income was?” said Streram.
“He says the MACC has let him loose but I think the MACC also has to come out with an explanation now.
“How can the moneychanger involved be charged and asked to close shop,” Dr Streram was quoted saying when met by reporters in Kuala Sawah near here on Monday (April 8).
MOHAMAD Hasan has earlier claimed he did no wrong when transferring RM10 million to London via a money changer in 2008.
He said he was investigated and cleared by the authorities 10 years ago, when the issue first surfaced during his time as Negri Sembilan menteri besar, according to the Malaysian Insight
The matter that has been raised again in the Rantau by-election campaign by Pakatan Harapan condidates.
Dr Streram said that Mohamad should also clear the air about the luxury house in Seremban.
“I have seen pictures and videos of the house but I don’t know whose house it is.
“But it has been broadcast through the footage that it’s supposed to be his house.
“He’s (Mohamad) been saying all along that he forgot to buy a house in Seremban because he was too busy working but at the same time, he managed to buy an apartment in London.
“Where is he staying now? Is it in a rented house or his own house? Let him come clean because this involves his character,” The Star quoted him saying.
Mohamad is the Barisan Nasional candidate in the coming Rantau by-election. The Rantau polling day will be on April 13.
