Nice Barrel Roll!

Pua Says He Merely Sought Justification Over Vessel Purchase

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 12 (Bernama) -- DAP national publicity secretary Tony Pua will not file a report to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commision (MACC) over the defence ministry's purchase of six offshore petrol vessels (OPV). He said this was because his article on the issue which was posted in his blog recently, only wanted the minister, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, to justify the RM6 billion purchase. "My statement did not accuse the ministry over the purchase but requested the ministry to justify its purchase by giving detailed specifications on the type of OPVs which was being acquired," he said in a statement Saturday. Hence, the Petaling Jaya Utara member of parliament said, the MACC call to him to file a report with the commission over the issue was irrelevant at this point in time. On Friday, MACC sources were quoted by Bernama as saying that the commission required a report from Pua before commencing any investigation into the purchase. Recently, Ahmad Zahid announced the order for six units of offshore patrol vessels for RM6 billion from Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd. -- BERNAMA
