SHAH ALAM: An MCA coordinator and a DAP assemblyman bumped into each other and engaged in a war of words at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office here over the Sungai Way football field issue.
Barisan Nasional coordinator for Kampung Tunku constituency Kelvin Chong Seng Foo and Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San had emerged from the same lift Tuesday.
They were seen arguing and engaging in verbal jabs. The encounter lasted about 15 minutes in front of reporters.
Chong later walked into the MACC office.
He told reporters later that he had lodged a report with the MACC calling for a probe into a plan to implement a commercial project on a football field.
Asked about Lau's presence, he said, he welcomed the move by the DAP assemblyman to come to the MACC over the issue.
"I think all politicials should take what happened today as an example where both sides present their evidence so that action can be taken," he said.
The issue came to light following a plan by a developer to implement a commercial project where the field is located. The area is being used by pupils from a Chinese school.
Lau said he would hand over documents to the MACC on the same issue. BERNAMA
