About Turn

The Malaysian Insider reported yesterday, here, that the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will summon the transport minister, his two predecessors and the attorney-general to testify over the RM12 billion Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal, in an investigation which could have serious political consequences for MCA and the Barisan Nasional administration.

PAC Chairman Azmi Khalid said that all of them, including Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) CEO and BN Backbenchers Club (BBC) chairman Tiong King Sing (photo), will be called in to testify in two weeks’ time. This was after announcing a couple of weeks ago that four key players in the debacle, which include the 3 MCA politicians, have been let off the hook and will not be called in for questioning.

Quite obviously, public outcry and constant lambasting from the Opposition parties must have played a major part in this about turn and also the decision to withhold payment of monies due to KDSB by the Port Klang Authority.

My fervent hope now is that none of them, unlike a former prime minister, will choose to do a Ronald Reagan: I don't remember.

Meanwhile, other MPs have yet to receive complete copies and appendices of the PriceWaterhouse Cooper report on PKFZ despite the exertion of pressure on the Dewan's secretariat and the Transport Minister to do so. They are expected to receive copies only after PAC has completed its investigation on the matter.


  1. Scoundrels investigating/judging criminals... It's going to be another circus and little else... And at the end of the day, the circus will fold their tents and move on to another town and the public will be left holding a worthless ticket.

  2. Captain,

    It would be interesting to see how this investigation pans out. i hope your hardwork finally has closure.

    Anyway, amnesia is a by-product of ageing. Most to be called to testify are quite advanced in their years. Also, watch out for the drool at the corners of their mouths. Either they feign it well or it's a sure sign of the debilitation.

    Good luck.

  3. I think Shahrir Samad's credibility sudah betul betul kena C4-ed now that all the worms are crawling out of the PKFZ scandal which he initially supposedly have already investigated and semua A-OK !

  4. Dear Captain

    Just look at the face in the picture. This is a classic crooked rapacious villain. I definitely would not buy a second hand car from him.

    He was reported to have finance the frog searching trip to Taiwan for the BN MPs. He taught he could use that money to buy influence to cover up PKFZ.

    I say! Blast this fella. Expose his evil doings.
