The Star (owned by MCA) portrayed Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing as ‘mob leader’ – selling diesel illegally before making it big time during Abdullah’s premiership.
… an anonymous person who claimed to be close to Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.
In the letter, Tiong was described as a powerful person in Sarawak and as the “boss of Umno and MCA”.
The blog said those involved had links with Selangor bigshots and that Kuala Dimensi had bought the land cheaply from Koperasi Pembangunan Pulau Lumut Berhad (KPPL).
The report also claimed that Tan Sri Onn Ismail, who was then with KPPL, was the father-in-law of Kuala Dimensi deputy CEO Datuk Faisal Abdullah and that a part of the 202ha land of was bought for only RM3.1mil.
Kuala Dimensi eventually sold some 404ha of land to Port Klang Authority (PKA) for a whopping RM1.088bil.
There were also allegations of PKA staff being bullied by their superior and the hurried manner in which they were told to pursue matters relating to the purchase of the land even at a high price.
The writer of the blog posting who questioned the astronomical price paid for the land at RM25 psf said sarcastically that it took him two weeks to deliberate on all aspects before purchasing his car although it cost only RM45,000.
What intrigued us is that – why they quoted anonymous blogger?
