Jamal denies Najib gave RM3m cheque to red shirt rally

Published:  |  Modified:

Malay non-government coalition chairman Jamal Md Yunos has refuted the allegation that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak gave a cheque of RM3 million to organise the United People's Gathering.

He stressed that the organisers of the gathering, which was held in the national capital on Wednesday, did not receive any allocation from the prime minister or government.

"I want to deny the statement and this news. I want to stress that the United People's Gathering has no connection with Najib and has never received any allocation from he himself or the government," he said in a statement tonight.

Jamal said the claim was libellous and was a baseless news disseminated by irresponsible quarters.

Held at Padang Merbok in the national capital on Wednesday, the gathering, which was headed by the National Silat Federation, was organised in protest of the Bersih 4 gathering around Dataran Merdeka on Aug 29 and 30.
