Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin today said she had letters proving that she was not involved in the projects awarded to her ministry through direct negotiation under the Pakatan Harapan (PH) administration.

She said she had compiled these documents and would hand them over to the investigating authorities if necessary.

“If the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) or any other authorities want to investigate, I have no problem and am ready,” she told reporters after an event in Kuala Lumpur.

On Aug 24, Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz told the Dewan Rakyat that the PH government had approved 101 projects and procurements worth RM6.61 billion via direct negotiation during its 22-month tenure.

Zuraida, who also held the housing and local government portfolio in the PH Cabinet, said she was not involved in any direct deals and that two such projects under the ministry were awarded without her knowledge.

Last Saturday, former finance minister Lim Guan Eng challenged Zuraida to publicly disclose the letters related to one of the two projects approved via direct negotiation under the PH government.

Lim claimed that the ministry had applied to the finance ministry for the Taman Beringin solid waste project worth RM170.3 million.
