Would you want the party and its leaders to lead the nation? They can't even get their act together and try to hide their failure to pay rents on the premises they rented.
Something so trivial and yet too big to handle.They don't even know who is the actual landlord.
PETALING JAYA: In the latest twist to the PKR headquarters saga, the building located in Tropicana here will not go under the hammer tomorrow.
FMT learnt that on June 6, the building’s “real” landlord and beneficial owner Butiran Nyata Sdn Bhd obtained an ex-parte injunction against Ainb Tech Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Affin Bank from carrying out the auction until the inter-parte hearing is disposed of on June 27.
Previously, party leaders named Ainb-Tech as the building’s landlord, who they said failed to service the bank loan.
“PKR leaders, including treasurer William Leong, secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail and vice-president Tian Chua, got their facts wrong,” said a source.
“The lease agreement is between Butiran Nyata and PKR. The bank is taking action against Ainb-Tech and not Butiran Nyata,” he added.
Ainb Tech was the original owner of the building and sold it to Butiran Nyata in 2008.
The latest information confirmed an earlier FMT report where a party insider claimed that PKR leaders named a different landlord from the one on the lease agreement.
“They don’t seem to have a clue about the lease details of the premises they are occupying. I don’t think they know who they are renting the building from and even how much money they have to pay for rental,” he had said.
The party’s five-storey headquarters in Merchant Square was scheduled to be auctioned off at the auctioneer’s office in Brickfields tomorrow afternoon.
PKR entered into a five-year lease with the landlord beginning July 2008 for RM20,000 per month. However, the party only paid rental until November 2008 resulting in arrears of RM600,000. Read more.
