KUALA LUMPUR: Even though all technical issues have been cleared for the Port Klang Authority to release the controversial Port Klang Free Zone report, the PKA board meeting had on 21 May resolved that PKA chairman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng cannot make the report public since it is now being deliberated in cabinet.
Lee said he now no longer has the power to make public the report.
On the issue of letter of indemnity that PwC had sought from PKA, he said it had also been resolved and that PKA would issue that letter when releasing the report.
“The opinion from Skrine is that we can give the letter of indemnity because in the event PwC is sued, we would also be able to counter-sue PwC,” said Lee.
PKA board in its one-hour meeting also accepted general manager Lim Thian Shiang’s resignation. Lim’s letter dated 7 May stated personal reasons for the resignation.
