SEKINCHAN: Sekinchan DAP has lodged a report at the police station here alleging that Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos (pic) offered RM25,000 as a cash prize to a lucky draw winner in return for votes.
In the same report, it also alledged that the Sungai Besar Umno division chief has also committed another offence by promising to give fishermen here RM2,000 each if they vote for Barisan’s Sekinchan candidate Lee Yee Yuan.
The report was lodged on behalf of Sekinchan DAP candidate Ng Suee Lim by hotel manager Kwi Ai Mei, 36, at about 4.30pm yesterday.
Ng claimed the offers were made on two separate occasions on Monday.
The report also mentioned that in both incidents, Jamal had asked the voters to vote for Barisan.
The officer-in-charge of the Sekinchan police station, Insp Abdul Rahman Khalid, confirmed receiving the report.
When contacted, Jamal denied that he had broken any election law “because I am not a candidate or agent to a candidate”.
“I am only conveying the contributions from certain individuals and they are not from Barisan or Umno,” he said.
