KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 (Bernama) -- MCA Youth Chief Datuk Liow Tiong Lai Monday described the alleged existence of a "snoop squad" on certain MCA leaders as baseless.

He nevertheless said that he would attend a hearing scheduled on Wednesday called by a three-member panel headed by Tan Sri Sak Cheng Lum. The other members are Tan Sri Michael Chen and Roger Tan, a lawyer.

In an interview with Bernama, Liow, who is also the Health Minister, said he would leave everything to the panel to investigate the allegation.

Using an analogy, he said: "If the water is clear then it is clear. The same can be said when truth cannot be turned into an untruth or an untruth to become a truth." He hoped that the panel would come to a conclusion as soon as possible for the party not to waste so much time on such an allegation.

"It is more important for the party to be united and use all its energy to face external threats," he said.

Liow also said that the MCA always needed people with talents and leadership qualities and it was baseless to suggest that the party wanted to get rid of certain people.

He reminded members that their president, Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting, had always stressed the party practised democracy.

"Whenever there is an allegation, we will investigate," Liow said.

Asked whether he would take legal action against those who had alleged that he was behind the formation of the "snoop" squad, he said he would leave it to the investigating panel to complete its findings.
