Former Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng made no prior disclosure of having earlier discussion with a company executive over the proposed island state’s undersea tunnel project, the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court heard today.

Former Penang state executive councillor Lim Hock Seng testified that prior to the state government’s exco meeting on Jan 26, 2011, Guan Eng did not make any disclosure to him or the exco in relation to Zarul Ahmad Mohd Zulkifli.

Zarul was a senior executive director of Consortium Zenith Construction Sdn Bhd, the main contractor for the project. He is a key prosecution witness in the trial.

The third prosecution witness Hock Seng was testifying today in former finance minister Guan Eng’s corruption trial linked to the Penang undersea tunnel project.

Previously on July 14, the Sessions Court had heard Hock Seng’s testimony that Guan Eng had directed him to contact Zarul and Lee Chee Hoe, another senior executive of Consortium Zenith Construction.

The witness then had testified that Guan Eng directed him to contact Zarul and Lee during a Penang state exco meeting on Jan 26, 2011.

Hock Seng today was replying to a query from deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin during examination-in-chief.

Wan Shaharuddin: Has Lim Guan Eng declared he had (prior) discussion with Zarul in January 2011 over the project?

Hock Seng: He did not declare.

Wan Shaharuddin: Has Lim Guan Eng officially declared during an MMK (Penang state exco meeting) that he discussed with Zarul in early March 2011 regarding the project?

Hock Seng: He did not declare he met them (Zarul and Lee) but it was clear the project was raised at the MMK (in early 2011).

However, during cross-examination by lead defence counsel Gobind Singh Deo, Hock Seng conceded that it was normal to be asked to meet parties with proposals that are in line with the witness’s then exco portfolio.

Gobind: So the matter of being given the telephone number (to contact Zarul) is a normal occasion, hence the need to telephone?

Hock Seng: Yes.

Gobind: You agree that as an exco, there are many tasks that need to be done.

Hock Seng: Yes.

Gobind: So, therefore, telephone numbers are given (to Hock Seng) to contact them (Zarul and Lee), otherwise one cannot run a state (Penang).

Hock Seng: True.

Gobind: Then being given the direction to contact (Zarul and Lee) does not contain any cynical meaning.

Hock Seng: Yes.

The prosecution witness also conceded that the RFP (request for proposal) of the project involving Zarul had been carried out properly, and that there were no complaints on the corporate man’s role in meetings linked to the RFP.
