LP Multi Terminal should have been port operator, says witness

THE Sessions Court in Kuala Lumpur was today told that LP Multi Terminal Sdn Bhd should have been appointed as the operator of the new Labuan Federal Territory Merdeka Port Terminal.

However, former Transport Ministry deputy secretary-general (Management) Chua Kok Ching, 64, said that the matter was shelved following a recommendation by former Labuan Member of Parliament Rozman Isli because of political implications as the 14th general election was expected to be held then.
