'Minister went golfing, shopping with orphans' money'

An Umno minister's trip to the United States costing RM410,978 was allegedly paid for by Yayasan Pembangunan Ekonomi Islam Malaysia (Yapeim) through a subsidiary fund meant for orphans and poor children, the National Oversight & Whistleblowers (NOW) centre claims.

Citing invoices billed to Yayasan Pembangunan Anak Yatim/Miskin (Pemangkin) that it obtained, NOW’s director Akmal Nasir said the trip to Washington DC, Iowa and Minnesota from May 21 to 29, 2014, involved golf, and trips to shopping malls.
