KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA presidential council has unanimously appointed party veteran Tan Sri Michael Chen Wing Sum to replace lawyer Teh Hock Kee as one of the members of a three-man panel.

The independent committee to probe the alleged spying on political enemies of party president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting failed to conduct its first hearing last Wednesday after Teh declined his appointment due to personal reasons.

Petaling Jaya division adviser Wong Leong, who was called to attend the hearing, submitted a letter to the council to express no confidence in the panel and suggested four party veterans be selected for the committee.

Chen was one of the names suggested for the panel, led by Tan Sri Dr Sak Cheng Lum. The other person is lawyer Roger Tan, a senior Bar Council member.

Tan was one of three international legal jurists appointed by the International Bar Association London to investigate the state of the judiciary and rule of law in Fiji.

Wong declined comment on the new appointment.

MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said he recommended Chen to the council after a meeting with him, adding that Chen had accepted the appointment.

On another matter, Chan said the party’s disciplinary council would meet soon to discuss complaints on matters regarding the 12th general election.
