MP claims French lawyers given false info on Suaram

(Bernama) – A law firm in the capital was alleged to have furnished false information in a letter to lawyers in France stating that Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram) was a registered organisation under Suara Inisiatif Sendirian Berhad (SISB).

The matter was raised by Member of Parliament Wee Choo Keong (Independent-Wangsa Maju) who also alleged that Suaram had received millions of ringgit.

“The law firm appears to have a grand design to tarnish our country’s image,” he said during the 2013 Supply Bill debate in the Dewan Rakyat Wednesday.

He also questioned why there has been no legal action against Suaram despite the investigation on the NGO which started a month ago.

Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob then replied that his Ministry was informed the Attorney-General (AG) had wanted to obtain a report from the Registrar of Societies first.

“The AG said there was a link between Suaram and SISB and wants to establish the link to prove claims that monies received by SISB was channeled to Suaram,” he said.

Parliament continues its session tomorrow.
