PETALING JAYA: The future of the much delayed Skudai Camp project remains in question as the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) conducts its probe.

The Defence Ministry refused to release an official statement on the issue until the PAC had completed its investigations and its findings announced at the Dewan Rakyat in March.

In an email response to The Malay Mail, the Ministry’s head of Corporate Communications Division Rozitah Idris said as the camp project was under investigations, the ministry could not issue any clarification on the matter.

“The PAC is expected to give a statement early next year,” she said in the email responding to a query by The Malay Mail on the steps taken by the ministry on the project which also involved a land swap deal for the Tebrau Camp.

The Paper That Cares reported on Dec 15 Mindef was the latest government agency to come under the spotlight by the PAC following discrepancies noted in the 2009 A-G’s report which was released on Oct 25.

The report had cited several ministries and departments for wastage and unnecessary spending. It also revealed several irregularities at a number of government agencies on the spending of their respective allocations.

This was the second time Mindef had been summoned before the PAC this year. The first was in January where top brass from the Royal Malaysian Air Force were summoned to explain the events surrounding the disappearance of two jet engines.

The PAC probe on the Defence Ministry focused on the RM400 million army camp projects in the Seventh Brigade Complex at Skudai Camp, Johor Baru, and the land-swap deal of Tebrau Camp.

The project was reported to had been halted over the past 10 years due to various issues including the changing of contractors, a court battle and a land swap-deal that turned sour. The legal owner of Tebrau Camp had also come into question as the developer had mortgaged it to finance the Skudai Camp project.

PAC had called up Armed Forces Chief General, Tan Sri Azizan Ariffin, and Mindef secretary-general, Datuk Dr Ismail Ahmad, on Nov 30 to provide explanations over the escalating cost and failure to complete the project.

PAC deputy chairman, Dr Tan Seng Giaw, had told The Malay Mail that the committee was troubled the camp project had dragged on for years and as a result the cost had skyrocketed.

“The PAC is interested to know why the various appointed contractors were allowed to defer on the progress and yet, the ministry’s senior officials did not take early measures to curb the problem,” he had said.

Tan said the PAC would carry out site inspection visits at the camp early next year.
