KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 5 — The  Malaysia United Democratic Alliance (Muda) has today been served with a letter of demand from Prasarana Malaysia Bhd chairman Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.

In it, the Umno MP demanded Muda apologise publicly within 48 hours for allegedly slandering him in public or to face action, following the party’s press conference this morning to highlight discrepancies within the government-linked public transport company.

“We have reveived a letter from the lawyers. I repeat, the main thing we want is an explanation as Prasarana are responsible for 1.5 million users.

“The company belongs to the government. If our accusations are wrong we are ready to go to court,” Muda co-founder Amir Abdul Hadi said on Twitter, with the letter attached.

 

 

Earlier today during the press conference, Muda had highlighted alleged conflicts of interest involving Tajuddin after Prasarana awarded compensation money, among others to a company, Detik Utuh Sdn Bhd, with links to his family.

Detik Utuh’s directors include Tajuddin’s daughter Datin Sri Rahayu Tajuddin, and its majority shareholder Tindakan Juara Sdn Bhd is also linked to the family.

Tindakan Juara’s directors and shareholders include Sri Rahayu, Tajuddin’s wife Datin Seri Rokiah Abd Samat, and Tajuddin’s son Firdaus.

The party said Tajuddin was abusing his power and wanted him to explain his actions.
