1. She found out that 5 lorries belonging to her uncle’s company were registered in the name of her company.
2. RTD was informed and the lorries were re-registered with her uncle.
3. However, the five lorries she actually owned are now registered in the name of her uncle’s company.
A business owner has accused the Road Transport Department (RTD) of transferring the ownership of several commercial vehicles without her knowledge and consent.
Siong Ho Kee Chicken Resources owner Ang Chen Nee said that five lorries that belonged to Pembekal Ayam Siong Ho Kee, her former partner’s company, was illegally transferred to her.
“Last year, we received a police compound for an accident involving my former partner’s lorry. We were curious and decided to check on the matter.
“When we went to the Banting RTD branch to enquire about the lorry, we were told that the vehicle was registered with the Wangsa Maju RTD branch.
“We then went there and found out that the ownership of five lorries that belonged to my former partner were transferred to my company. We checked the status of the vehicles’ grants and found that it was transferred to us without our consent.
“We were shocked that RTD could make the transfer without our authorisation. We then lodged a complaint with the RTD but they did not rectify the matter,” she said at a press conference at the Klang DAP branch today.

Wholesaler gets RTD roundaround
KLANG, April 26 — A chicken wholesaler was left spitting feathers recently after getting the runaround by the Road Transport Department (RTD) over ownership of lorries.
According to Ang Chen Nee, 27, the ordeal began when she received a letter from the police in December about an accident involving a lorry owned by her company, Siong Ho Kee Chicken Resources, based in Jenjarom.
However, she realised the registration details did not tally with any of the lorries she owned.
When she checked with RTD, she discovered five lorries she never purchased were registered to her business.
She also found out the lorries belonged to her uncle’s company, Pembekal Ayam Siong Ho Kee, also based in Jenjarom, and were mistakenly registered to her company instead.
“I went to the police to make a report and went to RTD to inform them of the mistake, but nothing was done,” she said.
She then met Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng, who approached RTD about the issue.
The attempt proved fruitful and all five lorries were re-registered with her uncle.
However, Ang was shocked to find out the five lorries she actually owned had also flown the coop to her uncle’s company.
“I went back to RTD to reclaim the ownership of my lorries, but they told me to have Lim write another letter,” Ang said.
Lim said he would not be writing another letter to RTD.
“However, I will be writing straight to the Transport Minister to ask how this incident could have happened,” Lim said.
