Translated version from Sinchew Daily:
Former MCA Vice President Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek said that he started to hear about a “secretive 2-man group” in 2006 and it was not a “3-man group” and further said that he did not hear the President, Dato’ Seri Ong Ka Ting’s name being mentioned.
He said that from what he knew, the people involved in the “secretive 2-man group” was Tee An Chuan and another individual who used to be a deputy minister but has since been promoted to become a full Minister.When further asked about the identity of the Minister, Chua said “he used to be deputy minister on the 16th floor but is now a Minister…you (reporters) are all very smart, you all know who that is.”
Chua was speaking to the press after the hearing session held in MCA headquarters earlier today but he did not reveal the name of the person who “used to be a deputy minister but now has been promoted to a minister”.He said that since 2006, some grassroots warned him and told him that Tee An Chuan had approached them to remind them not to work closely with Chua Soi Lek because he was not a person favored by the leadership and that Tee was working for a deputy minister.
He said that he had told the independent investigation committee the above information and admitted that at that time, he thought that those statements were used to launch personal attacks against him, so he did not bother about it.He expressed that he had informed the committee the names of party members who were willing to provide relevant information and news but he hoped that the hearing session could be held under two circumstances, one is to have the hearing session in private and that the witness’ identity should remain confidential when the report of the snoop squad is handed over to MCA’s Presidential Council.
He pointed out that after he had been informed of the existence of snoop squad, he faced a lot of challenges including the sex dvd matter and this made some supporters started to suspect that the matter is connected to the snoop squad. However, he said that he is not willing to make any assumptions since the police has been unable to confirm who is the culprit behind the sex dvd, so as to be fair to the party involved. Chua also said that he had proposed to the committee to clarify Tee’s doubting statement in the interview with Special Weekly:
1) Why does a 70 year old man, although with rich 'experience' become a Youth advisor?
2) Tee kept saying that he went to the relevant deputy minister’s office often but because he needed to wait for long time, so he requested for an office in the deputy minister’s office. As a result, his request was permitted, this statement raises doubts;
3) Tee claimed that he knew very well MCA’s organizational struture even up to personal details of delegates and this is very suspicious as even as a VP, Dr Chua had no access to these details.
4) Why those members who wanted to become candidates must speak to Tee?
“I have been a division chairman for over 20 years and vice president for nearly 5 years and yet I do not hold any organizational information, but then, why can an outsider obtain information that is unknown to even many high-level party members? How did this outsider get this information so easily? Why did party members who wanted to become candidates have to meet up with this outsider and not me (a vice president)?” he said.
He revealed that he received a 5-page anonymous report and the content basically said detailed Tee's activities, of who he met up with including the venue and time.“There is very detailed information in the report, including which branches or divisions support who and whoever that wants to become MPs or ADUN cannot support me,” he said. He said that the report was in Chinese and that it was sent to his house and he found out about it from his family. He said that he has handed the anonymous report to the committee in order to assist the investigation.
