DAP chiefs want Khalid to act
SUPPORT LETTER ISUE: Selangor menteri besar's inaction amounts to double standard say his critics
SHAH ALAM: DAP leaders have added their voice to the clamour for the Selangor menteri besar's political secretary to be punished for issuing a support letter for her niece's company.
Klang DAP Parliamentary Liaison Committee secretary, Teh Teong Guan, said yesterday former Klang Municipal Council (MPK) councillor Tee Boon Hock had lost his job two years ago for a similar offence.
Tee had issued a support letter for his son's company to obtain a contract from MPK.
"The menteri besar had, on Sept 8, 2010, told reporters that he (Tee) had been sacked for breaching the ethical code despite not sitting in the MPK's tender board, when the support letter was issued," Teh said at a restaurant in Bukit Tinggi, here, yesterday.
Teh, along with 18 DAP party members who had gathered at the restaurant, said they had sent a letter on Friday to the menteri besar's office demanding that Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim provide a detailed explanation on both issues.
In August 2010, Tee was sacked from the council and from DAP after he was found to have issued a support letter for his son's company, using state executive councillor Ronnie Liu's office letterhead and seal to obtain a contract from MPK.
Sri Muda assemblyman Shuhaimi Shafie, the state PKR information chief, had already criticised Khalid for stalling over the issue, drawing a reaction from Faekah Husin, who is Khalid's political secretary.
"What is his agenda and many want to know what he is up to?
"The party is keeping mum on this. He is openly defying party directives.
"Even the MB has to answer to the party, but Shuhaimi is immune?" Faekah had told the New Straits Times last week.
The central argument of Pakatan Rakyat critics of Khalid was that swift action was taken previously in cases were family members were involved in state-linked transactions.
DAP group sees red over MB’s inaction
KLANG: A group of disgruntled DAP members gathered at a restaurant here in protest of Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim’s handling of the support letter issue involving political aide Faekah Husin.
They want the Selangor Mentri Besar to act in the same way that he did to former Klang municipal councillor Tee Boon Hock two years ago.
Tee was expelled after he had used the letterhead and seal of the office of state executive councillor Ronnie Liu to issue support letters to various companies, one of which belonged to Tee’s son.
Tee was also at yesterday’s anti-Khalid demonstration.
Faekah had reportedly influenced a state government-linked company to appoint a certain law firm to its panel of legal advisers.
She had allegedly used a letterhead of the Mentri Besar’s office to support the law firm, in which her nephew reportedly has a stake.
Defending his political secretary, Khalid had said that it was not wrong for government officials to forward letters of support to any state GLCs.
“If Tee was punished for breaching the code of ethics, why not sack Faekah? They both did the same thing,” said Klang DAP division secretary Teh Teong Guan.
“Why are there no investigations into Faekah’s support letter to her relative’s company?
“Does the MB still remember what he said about practising transparency and accountability in governing the state without compromising with those who abuse power?” he asked.
Saying DAP grassroots members were angry with the double standards practised by the state government, Teh demanded that Khalid provide a detailed explanation on the issue.
“We are not seeking for my reinstatement. We want the MB, as leader of the state government, to walk the talk, come clean and repair the damage done to my reputation,” Tee said.
Tee reiterated that he was sacked as councillor in an unjust manner despite being cleared by the police and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.
“The MB sacked me because I did not state in my support letter that my son was one of the directors of the company,” he said.
“As for Faekah’s issue, it is the same. She, too, did not declare anything about her relative.”
