Still no sign of treasure on Pulau Nangka, says Malacca CM – Bernama
Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron (pic) said today the four-month contract beginning January, given to Smart Partnership International (M) Sdn Bhd would end at midnight.
Tomorrow, the task would be continued by another firm, he said.
"Actually, the search for the treasure on the island by numerous parties has been carried out since 25 years ago but to date, it has not been found," Idris told a media conference after chairing the state exco meeting today.
On Monday, state public works, public utilities, transport and project rehabilitation committee chairman Datuk Abdul Ghafaar Atan said work to drill through a rock wall, believed to be a door leading to the treasure chamber, was expected to be fully completed today.
Idris said the state government planned to turn Pulau Nangka into a tourist attraction if the fabled treasure was found.
