PKFZ scandal: Big fish hooked?

(Free Malaysia Today) – A “big fish” is likely to be charged  in the Klang Sessions Court  today in connection with the RM12.5 billion Port Klang Free Zone scandal.

The suspect is either a former cabinet minister or a prominent politician serving as a member of parliament.

However, no one in authority is confirming the widespread speculation.

Some sources say there is a high possibility that another person will be charged along with the VIP.

If one of them is charged today, he or she will be the fifth person brought to court in connection with what opposition politicians have called the “mother of scandals.”

The highest ranking among the four already charged is former Port Klang Authority general manager Datin Paduka Phang Oi Choo @ Phang Ai Tu, 63, better known as O.C. Phang. She is accused of committing criminal breach of trust in payments worth RM254.85 million to the project’s developer.

The others are architect Bernard Tan Seng Swee, 48; Steven Abok, 51, the chief operating officer of Kuala Dimensi, the company appointed to develop  the PKFZ project; and Kuala Dimensi engineer Law Jenn Dong, 51.
