KUALA LUMPUR: Six government agencies have been tasked to investigate allegations that Suaram received funds from an American organisation linked to currency speculator George Soros.
"We will look into the status of Suaram which is not registered under the ROS as well as the allegations that it has been receiving foreign funds, whether it has breach the Companies Act 1965," said Companies Commission of Malaysia (CCM) chief executive officer Mohd Naim Daruwish.
The agencies are CCM, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), Bank Negara, Registrar of Societies (ROS), the police and Home Ministry.
