PKFZ: Report to be Released

In a breaking news, Malaysiakini reported yesterday, here, that the government has given the go-ahead for the controversial Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) audit report to be released in its entirety.

Klang Port Authority chairperson Lee Hwa Beng would be calling a press conference at 3.30 p.m. today to reveal the report, an independent audit done by PricewaterhouseCooper (PwC).

In his latest blog posting, here, Transport Minister Ong Tee Kiat suggested that he had fought a hard battle in his quest to get to the bottom of the controversy. “That journey does not end with the release of the report, which I have now directed Klang Port Authority to do so as soon as possible, once everything is in order."

"We have a lot of work to do to make sure that the findings of the report are acted upon and the interests of the people are protected,” he added.

Now this I have got to see.

UPDATE on Thursday May 28 2009 at 2000hrs:

The PwC report can now be viewed, here.

As the appendices are voluminous, they will only be made available for public viewing during office hours at Port Klang Authority at Jalan Pelabuhan, 42005 Port Klang for 2 weeks till 10th June, 2009.


  1. These fellahs are just too good with words. Not that they appreciate the power of language but like everything else, it will be used for their own ends.

    Note his statements which are loaded with safety valves primed and ready to go, to wit: "as soon as possible"; "once everything is in order", and "the interests of the people are protected."

    Well, as you say, lets see. Maybe cows can fly, after all.

  2. The interest of what people. Chan Kong Choy etc etc. I think all these people should be made to jump in the sea in Port Klang at high tide. Yeah, make them walk the plank. A fitting end to the pirates of Port Klang.

  3. This 'akan datang' has been going on forever.

    What I have been waiting to hear from PKFZ, Ong and Beng Hwa are:-

    1. What action are they taking to clearly identify the fraudsters and take them to court, recover and mitigate the losses, especially against those who flipped and made huge profits (about $1 billion) on the land despite the AG's advise the land could be acquired by the Govt. for $3-5 psf.

    2. How are they going to immediately stanch the cost from ballooning to $8 billion and $12 billion.

    3. What action will they be taking aagaint Ling Liong Sik, Chan Kong Choy and Ong Ka Ting for taking no action and issuing illegally letters of support.

    4. Is the project currently generating profit and if so, let's have the full details, instead of Ong Tee Kiat's 'revenues have increaded xxx% and things are positive'.

    Everything else is of secondary importance
