KUALA LUMPUR: PKR lawmaker Rafizi Ramli owned up to wrongly identifying a woman he had previously linked to a firm lobbying the US government allegedly on behalf of Putrajaya.
The Pandan MP admitted that Florence Goh Siew Boy from IT firm CRT Insights Technologies Sdn Bhd is not the same Florence Goh that heads the US firm, Godfrey Group Ltd, he had previously named and said he was sorry.
He attributed the case of mistaken identification due to the similarities in two Johor Baru addresses registered under the name “Florence Goh” from his personal investigations on the alleged lobbying contract.
“The difference in the addresses was only one number which is ‘/1’ compared to ‘/3’ and that has caused the confusion, what more when we are tracking an individual that used a BVI company for this contract.
“Nevertheless, I take full responsibility on this error and apologise to Goh Siew Boy and CRT Insights Technologies Sdn Bhd for publishing their names. I had asked that they step forward and provide clarification, so I appreciate their clarification that they are not involved and I do not hesitate to apologise because they are not involved in this case,” he said in a statement.
