THE Registrar of Societies (ROS) has deregistered Dong Zong’s Johor chapter, which had been operating for 60 years, Sin Chew Daily reported.
In a statement on Tuesday, Dong Zong (United Chinese School Committees’ Association of Malaysia) said it would appeal against the decision and discuss the matter with the Home Minister.
It was reported that Dong Zong was unable to provide a satisfactory explanation to the ROS over the repeated changes of its constitution, thus causing it to be deregistered.
According to the statement, the society’s Johor chapter had been facing disputes over its constitution since January but claimed to have cooperated fully with the ROS’ demands.
Former Dong Zong deputy chairman Chow Siew Hon has made a public call for the current chairman Tan Tai Kim to resign over the fiasco.
> What was supposed to be a happy reunion among classmates in Bangkok turned into a tragedy when a retired navy sailor killed his former bully out of revenge, China Press reported.
The 69-year-old, known only as Thanapat, shot his former classmate Suthud in the abdomen on Saturday for burying him alive some 53 years ago.
The ordeal nearly killed Thanapat and it reportedly left him traumatised for life.
He left school soon after the incident and harboured a hatred for the bully for more than half a century.
Suthud was rushed to hospital but died on the way.
The killer reportedly sat down, lit a cigarette, and waited for the police to arrive. He surrendered himself along with his weapon.
Police have classified the case as murder.
