Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) dispatched three officers to Kuala Dimensi Sdn. Bhd CEO Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing office in Kuala Lumpur a news report said.
“It is learnt that three MACC officers went to Tiong’s office here on Thursday at 2pm and grilled him for more than four hours. His lawyers were also present as Tiong had been given notice of the MACC’s arrival,” national daily The Star reported.
The officers left at 6.30pm, taking along several files and documents pertaining to Tiong’s allegations that he had given RM10 million to Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.
The MACC commenced the investigations following reports lodged last week by Port Klang Authority chairman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng alleging that Tiong’s Kuala Dimensi – the turnkey contractor for the construction of the PKFZ – was allegedly involved in possible fraud, unsubstantiated claims and overcharging amounting to hundreds of millions of ringgit.
Besides Tiong, who is also the Backbenchers Club chairman, the MACC officers also questioned and recorded statements from Kuala Dimensi deputy CEO Datuk Faisal Abdullah who alleged that Ong had travelled on the company’s jet without making any payment.
