KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 25
Teresa Kok’s former aide hopes the Registrar of Societies (RoS) will look into allegations that the Seputeh member of parliament had abused the 13th General Election campaign funds.
In describing the RoS as a “last resort”, Tony Tan toldThe Rakyat Posthe decided to get its help after the party failed to take action against Kok.
“I hope the RoS can suspend her,” he said when contacted this evening, admitting he was unsure of the body’s scope of power.
Tan, who was Kok’s aide between 2004 and 2005, had, earlier today, gone to Putrajaya to submit the related documents to the RoS.
In a brief to the RoS, Tan said the Seputeh DAP branch bank account should be signed by the branch chairman, treasurer or the secretary.
“Most cheques were signed by her. At that time, she was holding none of the posts mentioned, thus violating the party constitution clause 19, chapter 10.”
Kok has been accused of misappropriating RM186,000 in election funds, a charge she has denied. Kok has also lodged a police report against Tan.
Earlier this month, Tan and DAP member Danny Leong submitted documents to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
