More than 120,000 hectares, yes, 120,000 hectares, almost twice the size of Singapore (the size of Singapore is about 646 sq kilometers, equivalent to 64,600 hectares) of prime timber land is awarded to his cronies. Most of them are using proxies to shield investigations. As a matter of fact, the said land was designated for the China Pulp Project, but was hijacked by Chong Kah Kiat, and this has caused Sabah the investment opportunities in Billions.
This company is linked to YB Datuk Shafie Apdal, a Federal Minister who is from the east coast of Sabah. His areas have a mysterious increase in voters and constituencies. (No one dare to ask , why?). In the name of anti-illegal immigrant, Chong Kah Kiat could have legalised or help to legalised them. Todate, the new deal is - Shafie Apdal will come back to Sabah to be the Chief Minister of Sabah, taking over from Musa Aman. Then, Chong Kah Kiat will be appointed as YB, assume the post of Deputy Chief Minister and Minister of Finance! You scratch my back, I scratch yours, indeed.
TAN SRI CHONG KAH KIAT claimed to be the cleanest Chief Minister, anti-logging, anti-fish bombing ... See for yourself ... He is certainly one of the richest CM as he does not spend his money. He has not donated anything to the Chinese communities..
This is proof of how vast the power of the Sabah Chief Minister. We have many questions, why everything about logs should go through Chief Minister ONLY, and not through the whole Sabah cabinet? Does Chong Kah Kiat when agreeing to the price and/or conditions & requirements, gets due professional & consultative information and advice? Were there any concrete and sound foundations to base on when making such decisions?
The big question mark is : where is the cleanliness? where is the transparency??!!
