Lee claims conspiracy in PKFZ scandal

PUTRAJAYA: Port Klang Authority chairman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng revealed there was possible conspiracy among five parties in connection with the Port Klang Free Zone scandal.

The five are Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd, its CEO Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing, former PKA general manager Datin Paduka O.C. Phang, BTA Architect and the consultant for development work Bernard Tan Seng Swee.

He also revealed that some of the parties had made unsubstantiated claims amounting to about RM1.5bil.

Lee revealed this in his report to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Com­m­ission against the five here yesterday.

Various organisations welcomed Lee’s move, saying the MACC should probe the matter because it involved public funds.
