He [Koh Tsu Koon] requested that all files and documents pertaining to the case in the Chief Minister's office and the various state departments be declassified and made available to him so he could prepare for the debate.
"Such information is needed by both sides to prepare for arguments in the debate. It will not be fair if he has access to information and I don't," he said.

in case Koh Tsu Koon has forgotten,
All official executive documents on land dealings in Abdul Rashid’s Komtar office were among the files that had allegedly gone missing from most executive councilors’ offices before the new state government was sworn in.
The present state government learnt about the land scam when perusing documents available at the state and district land offices, and state secretariat.
Insiders said initial random checks on previous land dealings had disclosed improprieties worth more than RM100 million.

note : KTK = Koh Tsu Koon, LGE = Lim Guan Eng
Lulu would not be surprised if the list of files which KTK wants made available to him will be returned with a "Fail Tidak Dapat Dicari", and if anything, confirms to the Pakatan government that the those files exists and have since Mar9th, mysteriously disappeared.
LGE, his team in Penang and the external auditors, with whatever little they have, have tried to dig into and understand the land transactions that have taken place, especially those in the last 5 years. LGE has tried to meet up with KTK on a more private basis having asked many times, writing to him, SMS-ing him and talking to his people but KTK has refused to meet him for many months now.
Hence the offer for an open debate as a last resort.
Hopefully, in this "debate", KTK will come out looking like the better informed person, able to explain clearly and simply how some of those dubious looking transactions took place.
Afterall, he is the better informed person, having been the Chief Minister when all this was taking place.
In the meantime, Lulu strongly urges KTK to contact his UMNO "buddies" for the files and more information. They have the info and the files. lol! they may even be related to the people who "bought" the land.
KTK should also make that set of information to the Penang government. That would be the right thing to do.
