The Seputeh MP’s former aide insists that she had abused party funds and has lodged a report with the ROS today

(FMT) – A former aide to Seputeh MP, Teresa Kok has upped the ante against his ex-boss over allegations that the DAP leader had abuse funds and should be suspended from party positions.

Tony Tan Chee Chong, the ex-aide filed a complaint to the Registrar of Societies this morning, accompanied by NGO leaders, AKS Ramesh Rao and Abdullah Rani Kulup Abdullah.

“She has abused party funds meant for the GE13 campaign. That is why I have urged the Registrar of Societies to suspend her from her party positions,” he said at a press conference held here.

Kok is currently the party’s national vice chairperson whereas Tan joined the DAP in 2002 and left in 2007.

Along with the complaint, Tan also submitted a post-mortem report of the 13th general election, allegedly done on June 21 last year at the party’s office.

According to the report she said that her friend had collected the funds as donation to the party on his own and should be given a free hand in the way the funds were managed.

He also commented on the police report that Kok lodged against him on Feb 12 for defaming her.

“She is trying to use the police to shut me up. I will still voice out.If I have defamed her, sue me in court instead of lodging police reports,” he said.
