THE Malaysian Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion (MACC) should look into the is­sue of funds in con­nec­tion with two or­gan­i­sa­tions led by PKR vice-pres­i­dent Rafizi Ramli.

Umno Supreme Coun­cil mem­ber Datuk Seri Dr Ir­mo­hizam Ibrahim said MACC should in­ves­ti­gate if there was truth to PKR Youth leader Datuk Adam Rosly Ab­dul­lah’s al­le­ga­tions about the funds.

“I be­lieve that the peo­ple wish to know where and how pub­lic do­na­tions for the or­gan­i­sa­tions are be­ing spent.

“By right, the money should be used for noble causes and not to fund pro­pa­ganda pro­grammes and slan­der,” he said.

On Fri­day, Adam Rosly had re­port­edly urged Rafizi to re­veal the source of funds for In­voke Malaysia and the Na­tional Over­sight and Whistle­blow­ers Cen­tre pro­grammes.

In re­sponse, Rafizi pro­vided the in­for­ma­tion on the in­come and ex­penses of the two or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Ir­mo­hizam said this showed that the bick­er­ing be­tween Rafizi and Adam Rosly could not be hid­den from the pub­lic any­more.

“All this while, Rafizi has been vo­cal with al­le­ga­tions against oth­ers as if he is in­fal­li­ble.

“Peo­ple should re­ject PKR as the party is ir­rel­e­vant and moves in the wrong di­rec­tion with its false strug­gles,” he said. Two men from Kam­pung Ki­tapol show­ing the fish they caught dur­ing the Ta­gal har­vest­ing fes­ti­val in Ki­ulu, Sabah, re­cently.
