MACC hasn’t approached Tee Keat

Written by Sharon Tan, The Edge

MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has not approached him with regard to the allegation that he received RM10 million in donation from Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.

Ong, when met after a briefing for MCA delegates on the RM10 million donation and the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) issues today, said there were sharp questions from party members in the interactive session.

Asked if the delegates accepted his explanation, he said he left it to them to make their conclusions.

Missing from the briefing was deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

When asked about Chua's absence, secretary-general Datuk Wong Foon Meng said perhaps Chua had his reasons for not being able to attend.

When told that Chua had claimed that he was not informed of the briefing, Wong said: "We have informed everyone. SMS has been sent out."

However, he said attendance was not compulsory, and that he had received many calls from division leaders who could not attend because of prior engagement but they sent their representatives instead.

About 700 delegates attended the three-hour briefing at Wisma MCA today.
