Possible Conspiracy among five parties in connection with PKFZ scandal exists.

In his MACC report lodged on August 27 2009, Lee, the newly appointed PKA/LPK chairman, claimed there was an additional amount of RM720 million in unsubstantiated claims, bringing the total to RM1.4 billion in 'possible conspiracy'.

Polis Beku Beberapa Akaun Milik Kuala Dimensi, Kata Musa


PETALING JAYA, 4 Sept (Bernama) -- Polis telah membekukan akaun syarikat Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) dalam membantu siasatan berhubung kegagalan projek Zon Bebas Pelabuhan Klang (PKFZ).

Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Musa Hassan berkata beberapa akaun syarikat pemaju projek itu dibekukan kerana dianggap menjadi satu fakta siasatan.

"Siasatan masih dijalankan jadi saya tidak boleh memberi (komen) lebih lanjut lagi," katanya kepada pemberita selepas menyerahkan bungkusan kuih raya untuk diserahkan kepada anggota polis yang bertugas semasa musim Hari Raya di Subang Jaya, dekat sini, pada hari Jumaat.

Musa bagaimanapun enggan mengulas lanjut mengenai perkara itu.

KDSB menjadi perhatian dalam kegagalan projek itu selepas syarikat itu didakwa mengenakan caj berlebihan terhadap Lembaga Pelabuhan Klang (LPK) sehingga menyebabkan projek berkenaan menanggung kerugian.

Sementara itu, Timbalan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif KDSB Datuk Faizal Abdullah dalam kenyataan hari ini mengesahkan bahawa beberapa akaun syarikat telah dibekukan.

"Akaun-akaun itu dibekukan sejak petang semalam. Kami anggap ini sebagai sebahagian daripada proses siasatan dan kami memberi kerjasama penuh kepada polis," katanya.

Faizal berkata KDSB sedang mendapatkan nasihat mengenai kesahihan perintah pembekuan akaun syarikat itu.

Kos keseluruhan projek PKFZ di tapak seluas 405 hektar di Pelabuhan Klang telah menimbulkan pelbagai tanda tanya selepas kos pembangunan projek telah melonjak dari RM2.5 bilion kepada RM4.6 bilion.

Berikutan pendedahan skandal itu, Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM), Polis dan Jawatankuasa Kira-Kira Wang Negara (PAC) sedang menjalankan siasatan.

Police freeze accounts of KDSB


PETALING JAYA (Sept 4, 2009): Police have frozen several bank accounts belonging to Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) turnkey developer Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) as part of an investigation into a Port Klang Authority report filed on Aug 11.

In a brief press statement this afternoon, KDSB deputy CEO Datuk Faizal Abdullah confirmed that several accounts had been frozen late yesterday afternoon.

"We regard this as part of the investigation process and we are giving our fullest cooperation to the police," Faizal said.

He also said KDSB is taking advice on the legality of the freezing orders.

Faizal, however, added that KDSB was "very disturbed" by news published in an online portal which revealed detailed and confidential information contained in the freeze order.

The report said that more than RM140 million in the account of the company was frozen, and that Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan had briefed Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak on the matter.

In the Aug 11 police report filed by PKA chairman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng, Lee claimed irregularities in notices of payment amounting to RM657 million based on findings of a special task force set up to identify weaknesses in the RM4.6 billion PKFZ project that the PKA cannot afford.

On Aug 27, Lee also lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) claiming possible conspiracy among five parties in connection with PKFZ scandal. In his report, Lee claimed there was an additional amount of RM720 million in unsubstantiated claims, bringing the total to RM1.4 billion in 'possible conspiracy'.

Lee's report named Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd, its CEO Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing, former PKA general manager Datin Paduka O.C. Phang, BTA Architect and the consultant for development work Bernard Tan Seng Swee.

Over in Putrajaya, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) Special Task Force briefed Najib in an hour-long meeting which started at 11am at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) today.

The task force, established on June 10, is headed by senior lawyer Vinayak Pradhan from Skrine and Co, assisted by company partner Lim Chee Wee, Pricewaterhouse Coopers Advisory Services (PwCAS) managing director Chin Kwai Fatt and PwCAS senior executive director Lim San Peen.

Ong did not stop to talk to reporters who were waiting at the entrance of the PMO building.

Earlier, at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) where Ong was questioned for the second consecutive day over the PKFZ and an alleagation of a RM10 million gift from Tiong, Ong confirmed the briefing, saying: "I have said before that whatever findings of the task force’s investigations will definitely be communicated to the relevant groups, including the Prime Minister."

Ong was at the MACC headquarters at 8.30am before going to the PM's Office. He was at the MACC office yesterday to have his statement taken. "The session yesterday had to be postponed as I had to rush to Kelantan," he said.

He added that the MACC had also taken his statement pertaining to the claim that he received RM10 million from Bintulu Member of Parliament Tiong.
