SOMEONE admits to being part of the SPY SQUAD, at lastPosted: May 23, 2008
I first wrote about the MCA Spy Squad on May 13 2008, exactly 10 days ago. And God knows how long the investigations on the Spy Squad started before I wrote about it here.
I’m still finding it rather ticklish to think that Ong Ka Ting would actually set up a SPY SQUAD to curb his political enemies, and ‘take care of them’. And I’m still shaking my head at the absurdity of it.
But the issue hasn’t been swept under the rug. In fact, investigations HAVE been going on! That’s a surprise! I always thought investigations that involve the people-up-there would automatically get the “No Further Action” approval. I guess Ong Ka Ting isn’t really that “up-there” anymore.
Well, someone has finally admitted straight out that he was approached by one of the SPY SQUAD members.
(NST) KUALA LUMPUR: Former Damansara Utama assemblyman Datuk Lim Choon Kin admitted that he was a member of the MCA “snoop squad”.
He made the bombshell admission when he testified before a party panel set up to investigate allegations that such a squad was formed to spy on rivals of MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting.
“I told the investigating committee that what Wong Leong said is true because I also met Tee seven times to discuss how to ‘strengthen the party’,” said Choon Kim, adding the first meeting took place on Nov 4, 2007.
Choon Kim also claimed that in their meetings, Tee told him that the squad operated from the 16th floor of the Youth and Sports Ministry building in Putrajaya.
When asked if there was a possibility that Tee was bluffing, Choon Kim said “No”.
On how he helped the snoop squad, Choon Kim said his role was to set up meetings and introduce different MCA members to Tee, purportedly so that they could be screened by the latter.
The meetings supposedly took place at the A&W restaurant and Overseas Restaurant near Amcorp Mall in Petaling Jaya.

Snoop Squad, Spy Squad, they’re the same.
Well, well, whaddya know. They actually have a “proper office” from which to operate from! And in a government building too! Woot! What prestige!
Okay, I’m laughing now, but seriously, how ridiculous is this scenario?
Assuming this is all true, then it would mean that Ong Ka Ting ordered for the setting up of a “secret” team of people to help him in ousting his political enemies from within the party so that these enemies wouldn’t get to him. But it was so secret that their secret hideaway was smack in the middle of Putrajaya. “The safest place is the most dangerous place” logic, I presume?
What is this? A badly-made Hong Kong action flick?
But one thing to note though, both Wong Leong (the guy who burst the whole SPY SQUAD bubble), and now Choon Kim only admit to having contact with Tee An Chuan. And surprisingly, or maybe not so surprising, Tee was the only one that the Star couldn’t reach when they asked the alleged members of the SPY SQUAD to respond. Read here.
Why? Is there more dirt to discover? Was Tee the only one involved? Did the other two do nothing? Was Tee the lone guy doing all the work, and now getting all the blame? Poor guy…
And once again, I can’t help but laugh at this.
