Stop speculating on ‘sedekah’ issue, let MACC conduct its probe


PAS is hoping that the public will stop speculating on the ‘sedekah’ issue which has become a hot topic of late.

PAS vice president Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said the party would leave it to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to probe the case.

“MACC should carry out its duty once a report (regarding the issue) is lodged.

“Let MACC do their job and the public should stop making speculations by saying that Pas is guilty,” he said.

Mohd Amar said many liked to make their own judgment when it involved PAS but reminded the public that one is innocent until proven guilty.

The deputy Menteri Besar told this to reporters after presenting mandarin oranges in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration at Kota Bharu on Thursday.

PAS President Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang recently said those caught on video handing out money to voters in three Terengganu constituencies during the 15th General Election were just ordinary people giving out charity.

The Marang member of parliament said there was nothing wrong with such an act as electoral laws stated that only candidates and their representatives were not allowed to give any form of handouts.
