Lee Hwa Beng lodges report against Kuala Dimensi and BTA Architect (Update)
By CHRISTINA TAN
KLANG: Port Klang Authority (PKA) chairman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng has lodged a police report against Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd and BTA Architect over the controversial Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) project.
Kuala Dimensi is the contractor for the PKFZ project while BTA Architect is the appointed consultant of the project.
Lee arrived at the Klang district police department in Jalan Gedung Raja Abdullah with his lawyer and several officers at about 10.15am.
He said he had filed the report based on the directive by PKA’s board of directors who met on Monday pertaining to the PKFZ issue.
“I cannot say much further, I leave it to the police to investigate,” he told reporters at the police station here.
It was reported earlier that PKA board of directors had decided to lodge the report against Kuala Dimensi for alleged overbilling and fraud.
Lee added that he had mentioned most of the points during the press conference held on Monday after the PKA board meeting.
“There are so (many) details, if I say anything further (then) you report, you and I will be sued for defamation,” he said, adding that it is the first time PKA has lodged a report against Kuala Dimensi.
He also said that PKA planned to sue Kuala Dimensi and this would be decided during the board meeting next Tuesday at 10am.
“We have not made the final decision yet, we have already asked the lawyer to look into it,” he said.
When asked if PKA would lodge a similar report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Lee said he would bring it up with the board on Tuesday and at this juncture, he was only asked to lodge a police report.
