KUCHING: PKR Sarawak lodged a police report against the state government over the purchase of a 'Diamond DA424M-NG' plane for RM35mil, which they said is overpriced.

Its state vice chairman See Chee How made the report at the Kuching Divisional Police Station here on Saturday (June 9).


He said a similar complaint would be lodged with the Malaysian Ant-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Monday (June 11).

The Batu Lintang assemblyman said he made the report after reading an article titled Forest Department Sarawak will be able to fly soon in the Dayak Daily portal on Friday (June 8).


See claimed the purchase of the fixed-wing four-seater plane used an allocation for the Federal Natural Resources and Environment Ministry and that it would be parked under the state Forestry Department.

"The police and the Transport Ministry must investigate whether there is/are individuals) or private person(s) and or private/public companies involved in the transaction of this 'DA42M-NG Diamond' plane.

"And what is/are their arrangements with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the Forestry Department Sarawak in supplying this allegedly hugely overpriced fixed-wing four-seater DA42M-NG Diamond' plane?" See told reporters after lodging the police report.

See said the purchase of the plane was widely reported in all the newspapers in Sarawak on Oct 26 and 27 last year.

"From our findings, it appears that the government paid an excessive sum for this light twin-engine utility and trainer aircraft, albeit a special mission variant with modification from the standard DA42 aircraft," he said.

According to the Great Lakes Diamond Aircraft Sales Inc. website, the price of the latest variant of the aircraft, the 2016 DA42-VI model, is not more than RM850,000 (RM3.4mil). – Bernama
