Kuala Lumpur, Oct 14 - Kampar Member of Parliament Datuk Lee Chee Leong today slammed Malaysia Chronicle for publishing an article that contained false and untruthful allegations of him having a hand in the decision to reject a RM 30 million donation offer to Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR).
Lee said that he was neither consulted nor took part in any discussions with UTAR regarding the donations.
"I also don't own any property, investment or have any direct personal interest in the UTAR development," he added.
Lee also said that he is considering taking legal actions to protect his reputation after lodging a police report.
Malaysia Chronicle had published an article on September 27 this year entitled 'Koon's RM30mill offer: MCA protecting rental income of cronies?' that had allegedly linked Lee to real estate investors in Kampar who were supposedly speculating the rental rates.
In that article, former Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin allegedly told Malaysia Chronicle that MCA had close ties with the Kampar real estate developers near the UTAR campus

The ongoing saga about the MCA and Utar’s shocking decision to reject a RM30 million donation to build hostels took a fresh twist with revelations of a real estate ‘scam’ by investors alleged to have links to MCA leaders including Kampar MP Lee Chee Leong and his predecessor Hew See Tong.
“It is an open secret that almost all the terrace houses, the semi-Ds, bungalows and shop-houses around the Utar campus were developed by towkays with connections to MCA strongmen. Apparently, MCA wants to brand Kampar as an MCA township,” former mentri besar Nizar Jamaluddin told Malaysia Chronicle.
