Aussie police seize property in Mara building purchase scandal

Modified 3 Sep 2020, 11:56 am

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) last month seized properties worth A$1.6 million owned by a relative of a Malaysian – a central figure in the purchase of student accommodation by Mara Inc, in Melbourne five years ago.

On July 7, Boon Lye Teen, also known as Dennis Teen, was charged on July 9 with bribing a foreign official and on four counts of false accounts related to the sale in 2013 of a student accommodation block called Dudley House in Melbourne to Mara Inc.
