Khir Toyo grilled over protest against Sultans - Sun

SHAH ALAM (March 11, 2009) : Selangor opposition leader Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo(pic) was grilled by Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen over the protest by Umno against the Sultans in Kedah and Terengganu over the choice of Mentri Besar after the 12th general election when he brought up the issue of disrespect for the Sultan of Perak’s decision not to dissolve the state assembly.

"We fought at first but then we obeyed, we have had differences with the Sultans but we learned from history and are obedient now," he said.

Complaining about the time when he was questioned by the Anti Corruption Agency (now the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) for 10 hours over allegations of abuse regarding the transfer of funds from Balkis to its federal equivalent Bakti, he said, "I have been cleared, I’m not afraid of anything but I will not forgive some people for creating this perception."

Ng Suee Lim (DAP-Sekinchan) meanwhile called on the MACC to investigate the abuse of power pertaining a contract to manage a multi level car park in Kota Kemuning which was given to Sani Tanjung Bunga Sdn Bhd by the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA).

Ng also mentioned three projects which were possibly given out without open tender by MBSA on Dec 15, 2008 to three different companies.

He said the contracts should be terminated if there is proof of abuse.
