Eurocopter Deal To Be Tabled In Parliament In Shortly - malaysiakini




KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 -- The Public Accounts Committee's (PAC) report on the RM1.604 billion Eurocopter deal is expected to be tabled in parliament in a day or two, PAC chairman Datuk Seri Azmi Khalid said.

"We have asked for the report to be completed speedily. As in previous PAC reports, it is being prepared in verbatim form," he told reporters at the parliament lobby on Tuesday.

The PAC, at its meeting in Nov 3, concluded that there was no procedural irregularities in the deal to purchase 12 Eurocopter's EC725 helicopters.

The committee, in its two-week scrutiny on the technical and financial aspects of the deal, found that the procedures followed were in accordance with internationally-accepted procurement practices.

Azmi said the committee had carried out its task and made recommendations where necessary.

"Let's now wait for the report to be tabled in parliament," he said.

Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timur) had raised the matter in and outside the Dewan Rakyat, saying the PAC should table the findings in a proper manner so that members could debate it accordingly.
