RPK a ‘liar’, says Dr M on tunnel probe claims

KUALA LUMPUR: Dr Mahathir Mohamad today rubbished a blogger’s allegation that several Penang state executive councillors were implicated in investigations carried out by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

“Raja Petra Kamarudin is a liar and you still believe him,” the prime minister told reporters before walking away.

Raja Petra had recently published several blog posts on the MACC investigation papers into the tunnel and related road projects, estimated to cost RM6.3 billion.

Several Penang state executive councillors were implicated in the investigations, according to these blog posts.

Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng had yesterday said he would respond to the allegations today.
