NewGen Party lodges police report against former office-bearer
Parti Generasi Baru (NewGen Party) today lodged a police report against a former office-bearer of the political party, alleging that the official had committed criminal breach of trust to the tune of RM105,000.
Its acting secretary-general Mohamad Zaini Jaafar, speaking to reporters after lodging the police report at the police headquarters in Sepang, Selangor, alleged that the office-bearer concerned had diverted party funds into the account of a company.
"The party's coffers are empty," Mohamad Zaini said.
NewGen was founded by Gobi Krishnan, a former PKR leader in 2013. It has since been taken over by former Umno leaders Mohd Ezam Mohd Nor and Khairuddin Abu Hassan, who are seeking to change its name to Parti Bebas Rasuah (PBR) or Corruption-Free Party.
The Registrar of Societies on Wednesday announced that it was investigating PBR because it allegedly had a dubious registered address.
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/opposition 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.
