The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report presented to Parliament on Aug 4 said some RM1.4bil in government allocation for the LCS project was used for other purposes, including cost overruns.

The two-year probe by PAC also revealed that the RM9bil project was done through direct negotiations with Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd (BNS) and was inked in 2014.

The sixth ship, he said, has yet to start construction.
