IT has been more than two years since their homes were dam­aged or de­stroyed in the mas­sive floods that hit Ke­lan­tan at the end of 2014, yet, there are some who have not re­ceived their promised new houses.

The com­plaints of sev­eral vic­tims in Felda Aring 2 and Kam­pung Li­mau Kas­turi in Gua Mu­sang have gone vi­ral on so­cial me­dia web­sites and ap­pli­ca­tions.

Now, the state Malaysian Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion (MACC) is urg­ing those who sus­pect there had been mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion of funds in the re­pair of their houses or the con­struc­tion of re­place­ment homes, or any sort of hanky-panky in the mat­ter, said she was un­aware that her hus­band had been de­ported.

She said she had vis­ited As­lan to lodge re­ports.

State MACC di­rec­tor Datuk Moh Sam­sud­din Yu­sof said those who were not happy with the qual­ity of work on their new homes or re­pairs done to their old ones should also lodge re­ports.

Moh had been asked to comment on re­ports on so­cial me­dia plat­forms say­ing sev­eral flood vic­tims in Felda Aring 2 and Kam­pung Li­mau Kas­turi have yet to re­ceive their new houses al­though it had been more than two years since the floods.

He said the state MACC did not re­ceive any re­port on mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion or wrong­do­ings in­volv­ing con­trac­tors of the project or other par­ties.

“I would like to call on flood vic­tims to pro­vide ex­act de­tails or spe­cific in­for­ma­tion if they be­lieve

“When we vis­ited him, he thought he would be re­leased soon,” said the mother of three, that there are of­fences.

“MACC, as an anti-graft body, will def­i­nitely give full co­op­er­a­tion to the flood vic­tims and oth­ers,” he said. adding that she later re­ceived a call from her fa­ther-in-law say­ing As­lan had ar­rived in Ankara.
