DAP man defends aide over ‘inaccurate’ report

 | February 14, 2012

Sri Serdang assemblyman Ean Yong has corrected 'unreliable' reports accusing Kajang councillor Lee Kee Hiong of having a 'clash of interest'.

PETALING JAYA: Selangor state exco Ean Yong Hian Wah has come to the rescue of Kajang municipal councillor Lee Kee Hiong and two companies – WSK Services and Hong Chae Enterprise – alleging that news reports published on Monday were “unreliable and inaccurate”.

He debunked allegations that Lee is a co-director of WSK and had received funds from the DAP Serdang Aman branch.

“In fact, Lee Kee Hiong has never owned any company directly and indirectly that received projects from the Selangor state government.

“Besides, WSK Services is owned by Wong Siew Keng and Hong Chae Enterprise is owned by Wong Hong Chae.

“Thus, the allegation that Lee Wye Wing is the co-owner of these two companies is untrue,” said Ean Yong, who is also Sri Serdang state assemblyman.

It was reported yesterday that Lee was found “guilty” by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) of having “a clash of interest” as she was also the co-owner of WSK Services.

A FMT report meanwhile , quoting a source, noted that the disclosure was made during the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into the death of Teoh Beng Hock in June last year.

The source claimed that Lee’s testimony in the RCI revealed that WSK Services deposited money to Serdang Aman DAP branch’s bank account after obtaining it as an upfront for a business transaction.

Lee claimed during the RCI hearing that she obtained the money from the party as upfront cash.

Who leaked out RCI documents?

Speaking to reporters here today, Ean Yong said  Serdang Aman branch had no monetary transactions with any contractors and suppliers.

“I wish to stress here that the DAP branch have never received any cuts or kickback or provided loans to any of the contractors or suppliers,” he said.

He also slammed the administrators of Teoh Beng Hock for Justice website for publishing photocopies of the transaction between the branch and the companies.

He said he had lodged a police report against the site but todate there has been no action.

Describing the website administrators as  “black blog”, Ean Yong said: “There is also an unanswered issue as to why MACC remains silent until today although a police report had been lodged in 2009 concerning the black blog (website) that appeared immediately after the death of Teoh.

“It (website) accused DAP of murdering Teoh and (is) using this accusation to distract public attention from the real cause of his death,” he said.

Ean Yong also queried how documents tabled at the RCI into the death of Teoh were leaked out and accused MACC officials for the leakage.

“I view these leakages seriously. These are part of the important evidence which should be kept confidential by an enforcement agency that is suppose to protect public interest.

“But instead they created an unfounded story by attacking the DAP as an attempt to cover up its own shortcomings.

“The relevant question is, who in MACC is responsible for the leakage?

Labeling the people who raised this issue, as an ‘anonymous crowd’ Yong stressed that they should stop making baseless attacks against DAP.
