Pemakan Detdak Mahathir, Kadir Jasin mahu mainkan sentimen Melayu dengan menggunakan satu transaksi niaga sebagai contoh dan dikait ke isu 1MDB tetapi sebenarnya pertahan kroni Mahathir, Vincent Tan.
Lim Sian See menulis:
A Kadir Jasin is very angry that the land used by Vincent Tan in a lease given since Mahathir's time has been taken back by DBKL and resold to another person.
He actually wrote an article about this case which he also try to spin to defend DAP.

"Saya tergerak menulis rencana ini setelah membaca berita akhbar The Star milik Cina MCA pada 30 September mengenai penutupan Desa Water Park di Taman Desa, Jalan Klang Lama, mulai 1 Oktober. Kalau berminat boleh baca di sini.
Inti patinya, taman tema air berusia 16 tahun itu ditutup mulai 1 Oktober dan tuan punya tapaknya, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) dah jual tanah itu kepada seorang tauke Cina bernama (Tan Sri) Chai Kin Kong. Dulu tanah itu dipajak kepada syarikat Berjaya milik tauke Cina (Tan Sri) Vincent Tan.
Nama syarikat Chai Kin Kong ini ialah Aset Kayamas yang baru diasaskan pada tahun 2011. Satu nama yang sangat tepat kerana tanah Desa Water Park itu sangat bernilai - macam emas – dan sesiapa yang dapat tentu jadi kaya.
Orang Umno lah yang kata kalau pembangkang menang, DAP akan perintah negara dan habislah orang Melayu."
Perhaps A Kadir Jasin does not realize but I think everyone in Malaysia knows about the very close ties between his boss Mahathir and Vincent Tan.
Who did Mahathir. just one month before retiring directly award the exclusive 20 years sports betting license withou ttender and without informing cabinet for just RM25mil but then the person turned around and sold the same license for RM760mil just 3 years later? Vincent Tan.
Who was the person who sold the Pantai Hospital group to Mahathir's son? Vincent Tan.
Who threw a mega birthday bash costing millions for Mahathir's 90 year old birthday party? Vincent Tan.
Who keeps letting Mahathir use his private jets? Vincent Tan.
I understand that A Kadir has a duty to defend Mahathir (and by extension, his cronies), but your article is way too obvious-lah.
Tambah lagi, rupanya Vincent dulu dapat tanah itu "free" dari Mahathir:
During Mahathir's time, DBKL agreed in 1989 to rent 69.845 acres or 3.04 million sq feet of DBKL land to Vincent Tan's Berjaya group for the Bukit Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort.
The lease is for 70 years and the .yearly payments to DBKL by Berjaya iis RM1,768,593.00 for quit rent and rental of RM291,000.00
This works out to annual leasing cost of only 68sen per square feet payable by Berjaya to DBKL.
Or monthly rental of the land of 6 sen per sq feet for 70 years in a very prime location.
Bukit Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort is a favourite destination of Mahathir and is where he keeps his 30 horses too.
When DBKL tried to take back part of the land in 2010 to build a park, they were sued by Berjaya and DBKL lost due to the "oral agreement" given during Mahathir times.
All these details were only revealed in the court documents where DBKL lost due to this oral agreement.
I really wonder what are the terms of the deal when DBKL also leased land to Berjaya for the Desa Waterpark also during Mahathir times in the year 2000?
Luckily, Berjaya won the court case against DBKL.
Had DBKL won instead and part of the land taken back from Berjaya, A Kadir Jasin will probably also complain.
