KUALA LUMPUR, July 18 – The recent suit brought against the government by business tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan for the cancellation of a Letter Of Intent (LOI) during the administration of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is a serious matter that clearly has also exposed the non-compliance to tender processes during the period, said former chairman of the Public Accounting Committee (PAC) and Taiping Member of Parliament Wong Kah Woh.

The LOI that had been offered to a joint venture company between Berjaya Group and Naza Group was cancelled after Muhyiddin took over the government in March 2020.

The contract was for the supply of vehicles to the government.

Vincent Tan in his suit has also alleged that the contract subsequently offered to SPANCO was RM700 million higher.

Calling for an investigation into the case by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency (MACC), Kah Woh in a statement today said apart from why the LOI was cancelled, the result of the tender committee at that point must also be probed.

MACC must also investigate the justification given by the administration of Muhyiddin to subsequently give a contract allegedly RM700 million higher.
