Fahmi rubbishes allegations of royalties credited into PKR accounts

PETALING JAYA: Fahmi Fadzil has rubbished allegations that the royalties due to Kelantan and Terengganu states were credited into the accounts of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

The Communications Minister, who is also PKR information chief, said that he has ordered that a police report be filed and a complaint be made to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) against the individuals who made such a "slanderous post".

He stated that the PKR party accounts were always audited by accredited auditors and no such large sums were ever credited into those accounts.

"An individual had uploaded a fake post and defamation of the worst kind. PKR publishes its accounts at every annual PKR congress and these accounts are audited by accredited auditors.

"There has never been such amounts as alleged into the PKR accounts, I have ordered a police report to be filed and a complaint be made to MCMC against the individual who posted such a slanderous post," said Fahmi on Facebook on Sunday (April 13).

He was responding to a Facebook post on April 12 that stated that Kelantan and Terengganu apparently did not receive their royalties which were announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

On April 8, Anwar had announced that the Federal Government had disbursed goodwill grants amounting to RM172.3mil to Terengganu and RM58.6mil to Kelantan to finance the state governments’ emoluments.
