PUTRAJAYA: A former aide of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok together with a disgruntled DAP member want the Registrar of Societies (RoS) to suspend her membership over alleged violations of the party’s constitution.
Tony Tan, who was sacked from the party in 2007, and DAP member Danny Leong Eng Tiom were at the RoS office here yesterday to follow up on a report they lodged with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) last week.
The two men said they had submitted to the MACC documents that allegedly show a misappropriation of RM186,000 by Kok in election funds.
Quoting Clause 19 of the DAP constitution, Tan said the party liaison committee should meet at least once a year but the Seputeh committee had not held any meeting.
“Each time a meeting is called, there is no quorum,” he said, alleging that Kok had made one RM8,000 withdrawal and three RM5,000 withdawals from the bank when Clause 23 of the constitution states that petty cash withdrawn should not exceed RM400 each time.
Last week, Kok, a DAP national vice-president, reportedly said that Tan and Leong had been attacking her since 2006.
She alleged that after Tan’s termination of service, he had interfered in her campaigns in the 2008 and 2013 general elections.
Last month, she demanded an apology and RM10mil in damages from Leong for allegedly tarnishing her reputation by accusing her in the media over the alleged misappropriation of funds.
