At a press conference in Kuala Lumpur today, (Friday May 14) , Wee claimed that the Selangor Select Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) and the recent statement made by Kuala Semesta Sdn Bhd (KSSB), which is wholly owned by Menteri Besar Incorporated, is a political ploy by the little napoleons within the party to intimidate Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam.
Wee said he is disappointed that none of the top PKR leaders has come out to intervene in this matter.
"YB Manikavasagam, MP for Kapar, had been calling for an investigation into the sand mining scandal involving the officials in Kuala Semesta Sdn Bhd, which is wholly owned by Menteri Besar Incorporated, and Pakatan Rakyat high ranking elected representatives in Selangor but it fell on deaf ears for some time.
"In fact, this scandal had been and continue to be an open secret amongst the PR MPs and State Assemblymen for some time, too. The sand mining activities had been taking place in the Dengkil area," Wee wrote on his blog (http://weechookeong.wordpress.com).
