KUALA LUMPUR, May 4 — The Attorney-General’s Chambers will not pursue charges of making a false declaration against the woman who sold her house to Lim Guan Eng, Penang police said today.

According to Penang police chief Abdul Ghafar Rajab, deputy public prosecutors decided that the case required no further action several days ago.

When asked why the case was discontinued, he told reporters to seek clarification directly from the DPPs involved.

“After investigations by police in Bukit Aman and Penang, the Attorney-General’s Chambers in Putrajaya has decided that the case of Phang Li Koon be classified as ‘NFA’,” Abdul Ghafar told reporters in Penang today.

A recording of the press conference was made available to Malay Mail Online.

Phang was investigated over the statutory declaration she made regarding the sale of her house in George Town to the Penang chief minister for RM2.8 million, which Lim’s rivals claim was significantly below the market value of the home.

They also claimed that Phang was linked to a firm that successfully bid for state land in Taman Manggis.

Lim is still under investigation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission over both sales.
