Politicians Needs Money..
When politics and business mix, you get all kinds of shit at the expense of the rakyat's money, and here what is RM10 million when there are billions being thrown around at the Port Klang Free Zone.
Read on below:
Initially the KDSB CEO Tiong King Sing was reluctant to comment on the matter and referred Malaysiakini to the MCA president.
However, when pressed repeatedly, Tiong conceded that the 'rumors were true'.
"Last year, Ong asked me to support him. As a new leader, he needed some funds for activities. We are politicians, we need funds to sponsor our activities.
"I was supposed to return the money to some other people. But in order to help each other, I let Ong use the money first," he said.
"He (Ong) said that he wanted to give the money to all MCA divisions. But I have no idea if he did so. This is up to MCA members to ask him.
"If he didn't give the money to the MCA divisions, then he is lying to me, I want him to return the money back," added the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) treasurer.
Stating that since he regularly 'donated millions' to people, Tiong claimed that it was difficult for him to recall the dates when he gave the money to Ong.
Although there was no other MCA leader present at the meetings, the business tycoon-turned-politician said he had a friend who could be a witness.
"If Ong dares to say that he did not take the money, then ask him to come and see me, I will clearly tell him from where he took the money.
"He (Ong) had even promised to give me a receipt, but I have not received anything," he added.
Tiong, however, remained adamant that the money was not a form of corruption or that it had anything to do with the PKFZ issue.
"If I had bribed you, why didn't you (Ong) make a police report?" he asked.
