Besides PKFZ, nine other graft cases saw acquittals as well

The decade-old Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal hit the headlines again when former Port Klang Authority (PKA) general manager OC Phang was acquitted on three counts of criminal breach of trust totalling payments of RM254.85 million.

This came as almost no surprise, following the acquittal of two former transport ministers, Dr Ling Liong Sik and Chan Kong Choy, in October 2013 and January 2014 respectively.

Thus far, no one has been found guilty for alleged offences committed in connection with the PKFZ scandal.

Besides Phang, Ling and Chan, three others from the private sector - PKFZ's turnkey contractor Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd’s former chief operating officer Steven Abok, former project manager Law Jenn Dong and project consultant BTA Architect's Bernard Tan - were slapped with various charges.
