Sng Chee Hua, the high-flying Sarawak politician notorious for his party-hopping antics, has been made bankrupt by his younger brother.
A bankruptcy search at the Department of Insolvency showed Sng Chee Kian had on March 24 filed a petition in the Kuching High Court to have his millionaire businessman brother – and father to Julau MP Larry Sng – declared a bankrupt.
There were no reasons stated in the Department of Insolvency search result on why Chee Kian wanted his brother declared a bankrupt.
The court made the adjudication order on the petition, case number KCH-29NCC-388 /10-2020 (HC4), on March 26 – just 10 days after Chee Hua celebrated his 74th birthday.
Chee Hua was a two-term Pelagus assemblyman in his hometown of Kapit between 1991 and 2001, and a one-term MP for Julau from 1995 to 1999.
He was then vice-president of the predominantly Dayak party, Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS), which was deregistered in December 2003, following a leadership tussle in which he played a key role.
With then political ally, former PBDS information chief James Masing, they moved on to form Parti Rakyat Saraw (PRS). – TMI
