MACC probe on Tiong’s allegation against Tee Keat draws a blank

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has not found any evidence to indicate that MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat received RM10mil from Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd CEO Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing for party activities.
It is learnt that investigations by the commission have so far drawn a blank, and nothing has been uncovered to back Tiong’s allegations.
Tiong himself is being investigated by the police and the MACC for fraud, including overcharging and unsubstantiated claims in the construction of the controversial RM4.6bil Port Klang Free Zone project.

Sources familiar with the investigations said the commission interviewed more than seven witnesses, including Tiong and Ong, who has vehemently denied the allegations.
(Ong has since filed a RM500mil suit against Tiong for unfounded and defamatory remarks by Tiong following the Port Klang Free Zone disclosure. The High Court has set Nov 4 to hear the suit.)
Sources said MACC officers, besides questioning all those allegedly involved, also checked their bank accounts.

It is learnt the MACC was expected to submit its findings to its legal and prosecution department, and to the Attorney-General’s chambers for advice.
Tiong, the Bintulu MP and treasurer-general of the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP), made the allegations after a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory Services (PwC), which was commissioned by Port Klang Authority (PKA) to look at the PKFZ project, was released.
The report by the Special Task Force formed by the Transport Ministry on June 10 alleged that Kuala Dimensi, the main developer appointed as the sole turnkey contractor for the project, was involved in possible fraud, including overcharging and unsubstantiated claims which could run up to RM1.6bil.
PwC estimated that based on current projections of revenue and costs, including interest costs, the project could eventually cost RM12.45bil.
Ong, in his statement of claim, demanded that Tiong fully withdraw his defamatory remarks and publish an apology in major Malaysian newspapers of all languages.
The purpose of such remarks, he said, were to tarnish his name.
He said they were published with the element of mala fide by Tiong to obstruct fair and just investigations into the misuse of funds in the PKFZ issue and the role played by Tiong’s company in the controversy.

本人无党无派,对最近华社政坛风波略有些意见。马华双10特大进入倒数一天,双十之后,“双死”或“一生一死”都将对华社政坛起着一定的影响。308马来西亚政治大海啸后,马华失去大片江山,只在40个国会议席赢得 15个国会议席。马华党员士气低落。黄家定及陈广才纷纷宣布不蝉联党职。翁蔡也因此当选马华总会长及署理总会长。马华在全国大选大败后,一直说要改革。翁诗杰更发表他所谓的“三拼”即“拼民生”,“拼经济”和“拼种族和谐”。但是,本人发现有“一拼”忘了把它放进去,拼“党争"意指拼内乱,把马华拼到荷兰去了。
