RONALD Kiandee today defended the integrity of the Public Accounts Committee, insisting its hearings were neither unfair nor biased, following the resignation of members from the opposition.

“Why question if it’s unfair? A meeting (of the PAC) only needs a quorum of the chairman plus three members. We never have a full quorum anyway,” Kiandee said in the Parliament lobby today, when asked if the PAC was able to conduct hearings objectively now that three of its members from BN and PAS have quit.
