Sarawak Report has found documentary proof that a huge area of 700 acres of valuable state land at 13th Mile Kuching, which had formed part of the Rajah Brooke Memorial Hospital site next to the Semengok National Park, has now been absorbed into the Taib family property empire.
The Chief Minister himself holds substantial shares in the property. In his guise as Chief Minister and Chairman of the LCDA, he himself would have approved and overseen the deal from which he has so directly profited.
A deal marked “CONFIDENTIAL”!We have established that the land was originally ‘alienated’ from the Hospital and placed under the ‘custody’ of the State in in 1984. Three years later in 1987 the LCDA then saw fit to transfer the custody of this land, which forms an extension of Semengok National Park, to a company called Lanco Plantations.
