KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 — PKR’s Azmin Ali demanded in Parliament today a full disclosure of the deal offered to former Ferrari Formula One team boss Jean Todt for becoming Malaysia's tourism ambassador.

The Gombak MP alleged that Todt's annual fees amounted to RM593,400 while he was also paid RM388,000 for his holidays in Malaysia.

Azmin also wanted to know the land premium which had been offered to Todt and his Malaysian fiance Michelle Yeoh when they built their home in Pulau Besar near Kuala Terengganu.

Todt was given approval this year to participate in the Malaysia My Second Home programme which allows him to buy property and live in Malaysia.

He was also appointed Malaysia's tourism ambassador, and has pledged to organise familiarisation tours and tap into his wide network of contacts to help promote the country as a tourism destination.
