Why fear if nothing to hide, Nur Jazlan asks NGOs
Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamed said civil society organisations should not be concerned over police investigation over their funding if they have nothing to hide.
He also rubbished Lawyers for Liberty executive director Eric Paulsen's claim that the probe on foreign funding recieved by NGOs is part of a "post-Umno annual general meeting witch-hunt".
Several NGO leaders have been called for questioning as part of police investigations into Bersih for alleged funding from American billionaire George Soros-linked Open Society Foundations.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
