In what is going to be another major embarrassment to the UMNO led government, the former head of the Port Klang Authority tasked to clean up the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) mess by the ousted former MCA President, Ong Tee Keat, will be releasing his version of the debacle in a book he co-authored and entitled, “PKFZ : The Nation’s Trust Betrayed”.

One could safely presume too that Ong Tee Keat’s ‘removal’ as MCA President subsequently was primarily due to his decision, as Transport Minister, to push through with the clean up of the fiasco at PKFZ.

As a side note, I do wonder if the Xian Leng fiasco recently would seriously damage current MCA President, Chua Soi Lek, when the EdgeWeekly reported that one of the main suspect, Chua Chong Seng, is a brother of Soi Lek.

Back to the PKFZ story……to add insult to injury, grapevine has it that whilst MCA is bearing the brunt of the fall-out, the major beneficiary may be their counterparts within the Barisan Nasional gang.

Don’t you recall Azim Zabidi, the then UMNO Treasurer holding positions in the various relevant entities including Wijaya Global Berhad?

Let’s not forget that the Treasurer’s position in UMNO is all powerful. After all, Daim Zainuddin also held that position.

It also had a ‘gotong royong’ element in that Tiong King Sing …….. the Bintulu MP…… from a minor BN party from Sabah…..who became the ‘facilitator’ for the exorbitantly priced project.

Let’s not forget Tiong is the reported owner of two private passenger jets (Lear and a Gulf Stream) and a mansion at the Mines Resort that would put Mahathir’s mahligai (Malay for palace) to shame!

It is interesting that Lee Hwa Beng was quoted as being disappointed with the government set up and its pre-occupation of only having yes-men.

Is it no wonder that the country is in it’s current predicament………being at the precipice of a financial fall-out!

All should read Lee Hwa Beng’s book that is due to be released next Tuesday.
