PKFZ: A Nation's Trust Betrayed


This book is a comprehensive documentation of the sordid affairs of the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) which began in the early 1990s with a co-operative that comprised primarily of ordinary people living on Pulau Indah near Port Klang. The co-operative, led by a few high state level officials from Selangor Umno, successfully obtained 1,000 acres of land from the Selangor state government to be developed purportedly for the benefit of its members.

A few years later, however, this piece of land was sold to Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) for a total price of RM96mil. KDSB went on to resell this same piece of land to the federal government at a hefty price of RM1.088bil.
