DAP sacks Klang municipal councillor Tee Boon Hock

By WANI MUTHIAH

KLANG: DAP has sacked Klang municipal councillor Tee Boon Hock, who allegedly misused a Selangor exco member’s letterhead to secure contracts for his cronies, from the party, sources said.

Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim had asked him to go on leave, pending the outcome of a state government investigation into the allegations.

Tee has denied all the allegations.

On July 27, The Star reported that a municipal councillor had allegedly used a state exco member’s official letterhead and seal by writing his own letters of support to obtain contracts for his cronies and a family member.

It is alleged that the councillor, a DAP veteran, had secured contracts worth more than RM1mil for 20 companies from the council where he had been serving since July 2008.

Although the man — who has strong party connections — has no access to the exco member’s office now, he has, however, been reappointed as a councillor for a third term.

The councillor sits on several important committees — including the tender board — at the council, one of the biggest in the state.

Exco member Ronnie Liu has confirmed that his letterhead had been misused and that the local councillor was now being investigated by the party.

However, members claimed internal action was “not enough”.

*************

Few says ago, Tee went on national TV denying the allegations and threatened to sue the report. Apparently, Tee did what he denied on air.

The question now looms; is the expulsion adequate? Will the Pakatan Rakyat Selangor State Government do the right thing and report the matter to the MACC, so that formal investigations are being carried out and if there is a case, the perpetrators be charged in court?

Many people believed that Tee is just a small fry in the web of corrupt practices amongst Pakatan Rakyat leaders in Selangor, now dubbed ‘Pakatan Rasuah’. So many believed that the expulsion of Tee is just a cover up. The bigger fish is DAP State Exco Ronnie Liu, who is Tee’s boss.

Ronnie Liu

Liu is a name that consistently crops up whenever the issue of why political aide Teoh Beng Hock died, right after the interview with MACC a year ago. A lot of contracts which trails lead to Liu was uncovered upon Teoh’s demise. In fact, the manner of how Liu reacted when Teoh’s body was taken for autopsy at Klang Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital illustrated on how he is seen to be ‘trying to cover something up’.

Suddenly, anonymous blog ‘Truth for Teoh Beng Hock’ becomes very credible, although it stopped posting.

The recent sand mining operations by Kumpulan Semesta Sdn Bhd is a good illlustration of a State Government cover up. The amount of sand being extracted from the ground compared to the proceeds that the Selangor State Government really got, the KSSB scheme and how the company monopolise the sand mining operations in the state and where all the sand went because of the sheer volume extracted did not commenurate any huge construction projects (which include land reclamation) lead pointing towards the cover-ups.

The MACC should investigate not only Tee’s case but also Liu. The focus should be on contracts issued, new license for ‘massage parlours and karaokes’ increase since Pakatan Rakyat took over and of course, on illegal factories growth and non action against them.

Selangor Rakyat have been short changed with all these corrupt and organised-crimes-protected-by-State-Government far too long. They should know who they voted in on 8 March 2008.

  1. Bravo DAP for the quick action! I don’t think any of the BN parties will do that. Pots just won’t call the kettle black. The toyol who used rakyat’s money for his Disneyland trip plus his unexplained source of finance for his multi-million Bali bungalow till now still couldn’t explain these to the Rakyat Selangor.

    • So, you mean don’t say anything? Just leave the DAP with what they want to do? Mengaku sikit lah. You call yourself 2nd Class simply because you don’t respect the Constitution fully. What a fella.

    • Hello 2nd Class,

      “Bravo DAP for the quick action!” Pooodah…why action only after MCA exposed this Ronnie scam? Is MCA a party within DAP?

      Ronnie only knew now after 2 years of the scam? Try to hide under the carpet eh?

      And by using Ronnie’s letterhead recommendations, those contracts were awarded, see how POWERFUL RONNIE IS, USE HIS CRONY TO DO DIRTY WORKS FOR HIM, and when scams exposed quickly find a ready-made to act as SCAPEGOAT.

      The scapegoat SACKED from party? Is that enough to be clean? How about making report to MACC together with the bundle of evidences (based on sacking decision)?

      Surely “potong jari” will not do that, coz surely will implicated the man behind all these corruptions and abuses of power, MR RONNIE DAP.

  2. Ha ha, what a show! Nothing to boast about when Tee is nothing but a small fry. Try catching the big fishes like Ronnie Liu & gang and the biggest fish of all, the angelic devil Anwar.

    Bet DAP and PR will go to town screaming they are pure and clean!

    Be warned BN, they are getting emboldened by the day.

    • Could Tee be merely a pawn in the game? I hope he is not going to fall from some tall building and MACC gets blamed when they investigate him.

      Isn’t Ronnie the feller accused by the PKR ADUN and the PKR MP of dealing with “the Underworld” in the offices of the Selangor State Government some time back? Isn’t he the one one who went banging on MACC doors and the Klang Hospital mortuary doors concerning Teoh Beng Hock’s death?

      Someone pointed out elsewhere that he attended the Tee press conference but left in a hurry and that there appeared something fishy. Fishy is one thing but if it’s something rotten, he sure should be investigated on, even if there’ll be another distraction that would hijack it like TBH’s death and inquest had hijacked the previous investigation into his DAP colleague’s case.

  3. Correction last para:

    Be warned BN, they are getting emboldened by the day with their saintly ‘sandiwara’ and devilish behind-the-scene plots.

  4. [...] the difference I’ve long noticed between them and the so-called Umno bloggers like Big Dog, Syed Akbar Ali, Bujai and A Voice who’d lynch their own leaders for alleged corruption just [...]

  5. DAP and PR should bring the matter to MACC for them to handle the case. It is because the existance of MACC are form their ideas for a clean and transparent gov. hehe
