Penang PKR to wrap up probe on leaders in four days.

The state PKR panel plans to wrap up its probe in three to four days claims that two senior party leaders here are involved with local quarry operators to cover up illegal activities in the state.

Panel chairman Abdul Halim Hussin, who is also the state state assembly speaker, said the panel which started its probe on Monday, would record statements from the two leaders.

We are working on a fast track basis. Perhaps in three or four days, we will wrap up the probe,” he said when contacted.

Abdul Halim declined to elaborate.

PKR Youth executive council member Amizudin Ahmat, who made the allegations during a Seberang Prai Municipal Council meeting when he was a councillor, was the first to be called by the four-member panel.

One PKR state executive councillor denied that he was among the two leaders involved.
Another said that it was better for the investigations to take its course.

There are three PKR leaders in the state exco. They are Deputy Chief Minister I Mohamad Fairus Khairuddin, Abdul Malik Abdul Kassim and Law Choo Kiang.
