PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Dental Association has been deregistered, following a notice dated June 6 from the Registry of Society, the association announced on its website Thursday.
It said that activities in relation to the association would be suspended with immediate effect, until further notice.
"We are making every possible effort to resolve this unprecedented crisis," said its president Dr Teh Tat Beng urging members to stand firm with the association during this testing time.
When contacted, Dr Teh said that the association believed the deregistration could be technical in nature.
"However, we regret that we cannot comment in detail about the matter pending appeal to the authorities concerned," he said.
Asked if the deregistration was related to the issue of purchasing of their new building, he replied, "yes".
The association was scheduled to hold an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) in Kuala Lumpur on June 22, which was later cancelled, to decide on the purchase of a building.
This was in pursuance to its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 31, where the association was directed to defer purchase of three adjoining shoplots in Kelana Jaya, Selangor, and come up with new resolutions to approve and purchase a new building within its financial capabilities.
The AGM mandated the MDA council to convene an EGM with appropriate resolutions on the purchase of the new building.
