PETALING JAYA, July 31 — The DAP today sacked Klang municipal councillor Tee Boon Hock as a party member over allegations of corruption in securing contracts worth RM1 million from the council.

Tee was earlier asked to go on leave by party disciplinary committee chairman Tan Kok Wai when The Star daily first reported the allegations.

Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim had said the state had begun investigating the claims more than two weeks ago and regretted that the news had leaked.

Tee has been accused of forging state exco member Ronnie Liu’s signature and using his letterhead to secure contracts worth RM1 million from the council for 20 companies.

The allegations against Tee were first reported by The Star on Tuesday but he denied he was corrupt, and is considering suing the daily.

The third-term local councillor had also said that he would ask the Klang Municipal Council to set up a task force to determine the truth.

Liu also denied that his letterhead had been misused.
