BN versus BN

With both MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Sarawak People’s Democratic Party (SPDP) treasurer-general Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing who is also the BN Backbenchers Club president openly at loggerheads now over the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) irregularities, it is Barisan Nasional versus BN now.

The MCA president who is also transport minister lodged a police report recently against Tiong over the latter’s allegation that he had given RM10 million to Tee Keat to support MCA’s divisional spending.

According to Tiong he had donated RM10 million to the MCA president last year after he was requested to do so by Tee Keat. The money was also alleged to have been paid in cash in three stages during a meeting between the two men at Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur respectively.
Both Tiong and Tee Keat are now exposing one another about their previous ties, relationship, friendship and their deals as well.

When Tee Keat pledged to tell all about the PKFZ scandal which caused the massive losses in billions of Ringgit, the core player of the project Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) of which Tiong is also the chief executive officer was frequently mentioned as part of the scandal.

Tiong who is the CEO of KDSB is definitely very hot up against Tee Keat by now for making KDSB a scapegoat to this scandal. Due to this, Tiong decided to expose and tell all about his deals with MCA previously which may in turn affect the credibility of Tee Keat as both MCA president and transport minister.

Apart from the RM10 million claim that help to strengthen MCA, Tiong’s deputy CEO in KDSB had also claimed that Tee Keat had also used his personal air transport several times to travel to certain locations.

In this case, will the MACC be interested in having this case probed and bring those who are responsible to justice? Maybe MACC is only interested in cases that involve only a few hundred Ringgit and cases that are fabricated against opposition party leaders and members.

Even though the PKFZ scandal cost the BN federal government about RM12 billion in losses, it is merely a BN case and the MACC would not take its initiative to intensify its investigation on those wrongdoers and prefer to investigate non-existence cases involving opposition parties.

In this event, the MACC cannot even demonstrate its effectiveness and professionalism as claimed by MACC officials all this while. It only serves the purpose and interest of their political master, Umno.

And since this scandal involves corruptions practically, why didn’t the Port Klang Authority (PKA) lodge their report with MACC against KDSB but instead did its report at the police commercial crime investigation department?

Well, even the PKA did not trust the MACC now as they knew that organization is merely an Umno’s political tool. That is why PKA preferred the police commercial crimes investigation department to investigate the case.

In conclusion, both Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing should resign from their positions respectively as these two men’s reputation has been tarnished politically and ethically by their own doings.

But we could see these two men are not brave enough to face the facts. Can they face the people and the voters then?
