PETALING JAYA: Former deputy defence minister Liew Chin Tong has urged the government to investigate the missing RM1 billion linked to six warships that were ordered by the navy.
Liew, who is also a senator, said the missing funds were a serious matter and should be returned so that the littoral combat ship (LCS) project could be completed.

“Once the parties involved are brought to justice, the government should consider injecting funds to ensure the project can be completed for the navy’s use, to continue protecting the sovereignty of our waters,” he said in a statement today.

Liew told the Dewan Negara in September that Putrajaya’s special investigation committee on procurement, governance and finance, had discovered that RM1 billion of the RM5.94 billion paid for the warships could not be traced.
