Acting secretary-general of NewGen Party says it is believed Gobi Krishnan deposited RM150,000 into the account of a company he owns.
PETALING JAYA: The acting secretary-general of New Generation Party (NewGen Party) has lodged a police report against its former secretary-general Gobi Krishnan for alleged breach of trust.
In a report in the New Straits Times (NST), Mohamad Zaini Jaafar claimed that Gobi received RM105,000 meant for the party but never deposited the money into the party’s account.
The money was allegedly handed to him by the party’s former president G Kumar Aamaan and several other individuals although internal investigations found that the party’s bank account had been inactive since 2013.
“The money is believed to have been deposited into a bank account of a company owned by Gobi.
“I made this report because I want the police to investigate him and find out what happened to the money,” Zaini was quoted by the NST as saying after filing a police report at the Sepang Police headquarters, today.
He told reporters Gobi had been suspended from the party on suspicion of embezzling the party’s funds.
He also addressed questions about the party’s headquarters, which according to the Registry of Societies (RoS) did not exist in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur as previously claimed.
“This is another issue. How come the party cannot have its own office when it has received money contributed by several individuals?
“Where is the money? How come the office turned out to be a ceramic tile shop?” Zaini said.
Recently, the RoS warned NewGen Party that it could face de-registration if found to have given false information about the party.
