GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government has called off the sale of a plot of industrial land in Batu Kawan to a private company, following a change in shareholding in the purchaser’s company. State agency Penang Development Corporation (PDC) said it has since given UMECH Land Sdn Bhd a three-month notice, following a board meeting yesterday.

“The change of majority stake in UMECH Land Sdn Bhd, to an extent the controlling stake, without PDC’s prior approval is a serious issue and a matter that was unacceptable to the PDC board,” it said in a statement. The land sale became controversial following claims it was sold below market rate, with the company later being acquired by a major property developer.
