PUTRAJAYA: PKR is in the process of furnishing documents to the Registrar of Societies (ROS) to prove that there were no elements of misconduct in its decision to expel Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.
PKR disciplinary bureau chairman Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong said this to reporters after a one-and-a-half-hour discussion with ROS enforcement director ASP Akmal Yahaya yesterday, a meeting which was prompted by a complaint lodged by Khalid.
Dr Tan said the PKR central leadership council was standing by its Aug 9 decision to sack Khalid from the party.
“The ROS is just doing its job because there was a complaint. As far as we are concerned, there was no misconduct.
“We have received a letter from Bon Advocates (a law firm representing Khalid) dated Aug 10 addressed to me as (the disciplinary board) chairman and (PKR president) Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah (Wan Ismail) as president, stating that his client ‘has little choice but to accept PKR’s decision and to move on’.
“This indicates that he had asked for his lawyer’s advice and had accepted the decision,” he said.
He said the party had given Khalid ample time to respond to the party prior to the expulsion.
Dr Wan Azizah, he said, had requested to meet Khalid “many times” over three weeks but Khalid had refused.
He added that Khalid did not appeal against his expulsion although a stipulated 14-day grace period was given.
