Tamrin sends legal letter to Zuraida over claims on direct tender project


Former Batu Berendam MP Tamrin Abdul Ghafar said he has sent a notice of demand via his lawyer to Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin over her remarks tying him to the direct tender of a solid waste transfer station project.

“A notice of demand dated Oct 13, 2020 has been sent by my lawyer Ramkarpal Singh to Zuraida and was accepted by her political secretary on Oct 14, 2020,” Tamrin said in a statement today.

He said he also sent similar notices of demand to Umno supreme council member Mohd Puad Zarkashi, “bloggers" and others who he claimed have cast aspersions against him including Bersatu supreme council member Aziz Yassin.

“I will continue to pursue legal action against them if they fail to fulfil my demands.

“I am ready to cooperate with the police and the MACC if necessary,” Tamrin said.

Previously, Zuraida had claimed that Tamrin, as an adviser to Bumi Segar Indah, had approached then finance minister Lim Guan Eng to directly negotiate the solid waste transfer station project in Taman Beringin, Jinjang Utara on Nov 26, 2018.

The Ampang MP claimed Lim had advised Bumi Segar Indah to present her ministry with a formal proposal and that he eventually approved the project through a letter dated Feb 20, 2019.

Tamrin later denied this and said the project was actually awarded through direct negotiations under BN in 2017 and that the minister in charge at the time was Mohd Noh Omar.

The solid waste transfer project was among 101 direct negotiation contracts which Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Abdul Aziz claimed was approved by the Pakatan Harapan government.

However, most of the projects on the list were approved during BN’s tenure in Putrajaya. - Mkini
