Langkawi New City project developer issued warrant of arrest

Langkawi New City project developer Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing was issued a warrant of arrest to secure his future attendance in court on June 29.

Ting has since indicated that he will comply with the order to be present in court following his failure from doing so  on June 7.

Ting said the court appearance was “just a small matter” and claimed that certain quarters were trying to embarrass him after he announced that he was embarking on a RM30bil development project in Langkawi.

KUCHING: Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing will comply with an order to be present in court on June 29 after an arrest warrant was issued against him for failing to appear on June 7.

“They want me to be there on June 29, I’ll be there. I haven’t received the notice but I saw it in the papers.

“If I don’t come on that day, they will arrest me,” the Sarawak-born tycoon told reporters here on Friday (June 8).

Ting said the court appearance was “just a small matter” and claimed that certain quarters were trying to embarrass him after he announced that he was embarking on a RM30bil development project in Langkawi.

He also said he could not attend court on June 7 as he was busy with the Langkawi project and only received the order to appear three days beforehand.

He said he wrote a letter to the Kuala Lumpur High Court to explain why he was unable to appear on June 7.

“People are trying to embarrass me. I’m not a murderer, I’m not a criminal.

“But I will be there at the end of the month. I will not run away from them,” he said.

It was reported that Ting was due to appear in court to answer questions by creditors on June 7 but did not turn up. The warrant of arrest, issued under Section 28 of the Insolvency Act 1967, is to secure his future attendance in court on June 29.

According to The Edge Financial Daily, the order to attend a public enquiry hearing was issued for Ting and his wife, Puan Sri Wong Sui Choo, after it was revealed that the bankrupt businessman had planned to embark on the Langkawi New City project.
