KUALA LUMPUR, July 24 (Bernama) -- Malaysian Malay Network Organisation (JMM) president Azwanddin Hamzah has urged Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) general manager, Othman Omar, to clarify its takeover of Talam Corporation Berhad's (Talam) debt.
According to Azwanddin, PKNS, which previously was tasked to help the poor, had taken over Talam's debt amounting to RM392 million from Permodalan Negeri Selangor Berhad (PNSB), Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Berhad (KHSB) and Universiti Selangor (Unisel).
"I want Othman to explain why he approved a resolution to take over the debt. Was he willing or forced by certain quarters to agree to this?" he told reporters here.
