Make the Port Klang Free Zone report public
DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw reiterates that the PricewaterhouseCoopers report on the Port KlangFree Zone (PKFZ) should be made public.
Dr Tan feels that it is puzzling why the report has not been released. Apparently, it has been held back on technical ground.
The PKFZ saga makes people wonder what actually happened to the project to convert Pulau Indah into a free trade zone. At about 2002, once Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd knew of the intention of the Government to create the free trade zone, it bought the land of 999.5 acres at RM 3 per square foot from a cooperative. On 12.11.2002, it sold the land to the Klang Port Authority at RM 25 per square foot, totalling RM 1.9 billion. We need the report to verify the actual amount involved.
What was the part played by the previous state Government in 2002? Who are shareholders of Kuala Dimensi?
Usually, the government acquires the land for development such as the KLIA. Why did the Government not acquire Pulau Indah?
Let us overcome the 'technical issue' and make the report public.
