PUTRAJAYA, May 21 2016 : Barisan Nasional (BN) Strategic Communications director Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan wants the Penang Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Report to be made public.

He said heated debate in the Penang State Assembly revealed that the release of the PAC Report was postponed twice.

“This proves that the answer given is incomplete,” he said in a statement, here today.

On the invitation by the Penang DAP government to look at documents of three major road projects and the undersea tunnel project, Abdul Rahman said he had to decline as it did not give many advantages.

“There is little to gain from just looking at the documents.”

The Minister of Housing and Local Government said the Penang DAP government should offer the same deal to the others.

They include the Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4), the Penang Citizen Awareness Chant Group and the Consumers Association of Penang (CAP).

“At least two DAP state assemblymen in Penang and five PKR state assemblymen have also raised questions about the tunnel project.

“So far, none of them have received a satisfactory answer,” he added. – Bernama
