MCA Selangor urges Selangor MB to carry out a fair & thorough investigation on the implicated EXCO

MCA Selangor Secretary Sdr Lee Wei Kiat urges the Selangor state government to be fair and transparent in handling the claim that a certain Selangor executive councilor’s office has been used as a meeting place for people connected with “underground business activities.”

Wei Kiat who is also the MCA Subang Division Chairman pointed out that the Selangor Menteri Besar has the responsibility to reply to the claim made by PKR Member of Parliament YB Wee Choo Keong that he has received many complaints from Pakatan Rakyat grassroots and businessmen that one executive councilor from Selangor had abused his position and allowed his office to be used as a meeting venue for people involved with underground business activities.

“The claim against this Selangor EXCO is very shocking and worrying especially this involved traders using government offices as a meeting place. If such a claim is true, then the action by the EXCO is tantamount to abusing his position in having connections with illegal business operators. This is a very serious matter,” Wei Kiat emphasized.

Wei Kiat also urges the Selangor Menteri Besar to seriously look into this matter and conduct an open and thorough investigation to explain to the people.

“I hope that Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim will not treat this matter lightly and sweep it under the carpet. MCA Selangor also urges the concerned EXCO implicated in this matter to relinquish his position quickly to ensure that a fair and thorough investigation could be carried out smoothly on him so that that the interest of the Selangor people will not be jeopardized,” he stressed.
