MACC arrests Khir Toyo, faces land fraud charge

UPDATED SHAH ALAM: Former Selangor Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and is expected to be charged over alleged land fraud.


He was arrested this morning. Also taken in by the MACC was Ditamas Sdn Bhd director Shamsuddin Haryoni.

He was brought to the Shah Alam court at about 11.40am. Also present was Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail.

Khir is expected to be charged with Shamsuddin for allegedly committing a land fraud for the purposes of building a mansion.

Khir is alleged to have accepted two land lots from Shamsuddin for RM3.5mil in May 29, 2007 when the said lots were bought by Shamsuddin for RM6.5mil in 2004.

The charges against the two men carry a two-year jail term, fine or both.

The issue over Khir's Balinese-style mansion in Section 7, Shah Alam was first raised by Sekinchan assemblyperson Ng Suee Lim who questioned Khir's extravagance in the contruction of the mansion and the price paid for the land.

Ng claimed that Khir had contructed the mansion at a cost of RM20 million and had purchased the land for RM3.8 million, claims which were denied by the former Selangor Umno strongman.

Ng's accusation also saw Khir suing him for defamation.

It is believed that both Khir and Shamsuddin are presently being questioned by the MACC at its state headquarters in Shah Alam.
