DAP yesterday sacked Klang municipal councillor Tee Boon Hock for alleged misuse of power involving recommendation letters to secure Klang Municipal Council (MPK) contracts. Selangor DAP chairman Ean Yong Hian Wah, when contacted by Bernama, confirmed the sacking but refused further comment.
On Tuesday, an English daily reported that a municipal councillor had allegedly used Selangor Local Government, Study and Research Committee chairman Ronnie Liu's official letterhead and seal to produce his own letters of recommendation to get MPK contracts for his cronies and family members.
Meanwhile, Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the search done on MPK's office yesterday did not find any letters of recommendation alleged to have been produced by the councillor.
He said although Tee had been called to give his statements to the police, the councillor had yet to do so.
DAP, at least, did not try to defend its 'corrupt' member unlike other parties. The stern action is probably the most harsh ever taken against its member but the MACC is not left with lesser burden in investigating the case, should they want to.
Shall we commend this move by the DAP?
