PETALING JAYA: A former Tourism Malaysia chairman continues to raise questions about the “Speedy Gonzales contract”, including why a mega-million deal went to company with an office that is converted from a house.
Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd’s address in Petaling Jaya leads to a two-and-a-half storey corner unit terrace house in a residential area.
In a blog posting yesterday, Wee Choo Keong wrote that the place looked like an empty house and “definitely has no character of a business premises of a company” capable of handling multi-million ringgit worth of digital marketing.
On May 31, Wee highlighted how Geeko Tech and Tourism Malaysia inked a RM99.693mil deal in just one day, which led him to label it as the “Speedy Gonzales contract”.
Wee also revealed the contract was signed by the 31-year-old CEO of Geeko.
Wee urged the Auditor-General and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate and call for a revamp in Tourism Malaysia and the Tourism and Culture Ministry.
Meanwhile, Tourism Malaysia director-general Datuk Seri Mirza Mohammad Taiyab confirmed that the MACC had seized documents from its office in Putrajaya.
He spoke to reporters after attending a meeting with the Council of Eminent Persons.
Sources familiar with the investigations said the MACC was still studying the documents and might call people in for questioning if needed.
