RM12.5 billion PKFZ scandal – the great expose in Parliament

Part 1 — Najib’s achilles heel

Part 2 — BN’s crisis of confidence : BN leaders have eyes that see not, ears that hear not, mouth that speak not or talk rubbish. Read the rest of this entry »


RM12.5 billiion PKFZ scandal – Parliament entitled to know the reasons why the Cabinet chopped and changed week-by-week its decision in October/November 2002 on the PKFZ land issue

Today’s Star under the report “PKFZ probe under wraps for now” reads:

Malaysian Anti-Corruption (MACC) is not obliged to disclose the progress of investigations into the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

PAC member William Leong (PKR-Selayang) said MACC Commissioner had informed the PAC that the PKFZ issue was still under probe and Section 29 of the MACC Act 2008 does not allow the commission to disclose any information about the investigation to the PAC.

Unfortunately we were unable to get any information as to the situation of the investigation, when the investigation will end and whether any action would be taken against anyone,” he said.

Leong said he was disappointed with MACC’s reply, adding that several reports over the PKFZ were lodged with MACC, or ACA, since w2004.

52 years of nationhood, 1Malaysia smashed into smithereens by Najib

Kit Siang mocks Najib over Malay unity plea to PAS
By Shannon Teoh
The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 — The DAP’s Lim Kit Siang challenged what he feels is the absurdity of Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s call for Malay and Muslim unity, and mocked the prime minister by asking today if Umno would give the nod to Chinese unity talks or similar discourse for other communities as well.

“Is he saying it is okay for Chinese unity talks? Indian, Kadazan, Iban unity talks?” the DAP parliamentary leader questioned.

The Pakatan Rakyat (PR) man was commenting on Najib’s plea yesterday for PAS to revive the idea of a unity government with Umno for the sake of Malay and Muslim unity.

PKFZ scandal – Is OTK so useless he cannot ensure that the 300 copies of PwC report and appendices on RM12.5 billion PKFZ scandal are tabled in Parliament on Monday

My three questions (No.79 to No. 81 on the 27th day in the current series) to Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat on the RM12.5 billion Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal today are:

Question No. 1: This is the end of the second week of Parliament, which will adjourn next Thursday on 2nd July following a two-day extension.

Ong, who had absconded to France for the Paris Air Show instead of being Parliament when it met on June 15 to give an accounting of the PKFZ scandal, has now put up a great show of his commitment to the principles of accountability, transparency and integrity by claiming that 300 copies of the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) audit report and appendices on the PKFZ scandal have been sent to Parliament for MPs – but not a single MP whether from Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat has received it.

Ong may be trying to become a David Copperfield in Malaysian Parliament – conjuring up 300 sets of the PwC report and appendices which MPs cannot touch, see or read!

Is Ong so useless as Transport Minister, but good as Minister for Air Shows, that he could not even ensure that MPs and the media are instantly given copies of the PwC Report and Appendices?
