KUALA LUMPUR: A key witness appearing in the MCA's investigation into the alleged existence of a "political assassination squad" walked out of the meeting yesterday, claiming that the panel lacked locus standi.

The witness, MCA Petaling Jaya Utara division adviser Wong Leong, added that he felt the panel was insincere.

"They called me up and I was more than happy to testify. However, the three-man committee, which was supposed to be headed by party veterans, turned out to be just two life-long members.

"They were not party veterans and both were not eloquent in Mandarin."

The committee was reported to be led by Tan Sri Sak Cheng Lum and assisted by lawyers Roger Tan and Teh Hock Kee. However, according to Wong, only Sak and Tan were present.

The hearing, which started at 2pm at Wisma MCA yesterday, lasted 15 minutes.

The committee was set up to investigate allegations that party president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting has three henchmen whose job is to gather dirt on his rivals.

"I told the committee that I wanted to co-operate but since both of them were English-educated, my session with them would be like 'duck and chicken talk'," the party veteran said.

Wong said he would expose all if the committee included party veterans who were righteous and spoke Mandarin.

He suggested party elders such as Tan Sri Michael Chen, Tan Sri Lee Kim Sai, Tan Sri Dr Ting Chew Peh and Ng Chung Keat.

Wong said he knew the identity of the three-men "political assassination squad" and had concrete proof and witnesses to back up his claim.

"When the committee shows itself to be sincere, then I will tell all. After that it is up to them to investigate."
