KOTA BHARU: The alleged transfer of RM2.5 million, supposedly from Umno to PAS with the possible source being money misappropriated from 1MDB, is just an assumption and slander, said Kelantan PAS commissioner Ahmad Yakob.

Ahmad, who is also Kelantan menteri besar, said the allegation was aimed at creating an unhealthy environment, especially as Umno is losing power in the current political arena.

“What I want to say is that PAS has never received funds from Umno. We are working alone and the money is obtained from supporters’ donations.

“If (as claimed) the funds are from Umno, it is not right,” he said after launching the Agricultural Expo and Green Expo at Dataran Stadium Sultan Muhammad IV here today.

Ahmad was asked to comment on Terengganu Amanah Youth lodging a police report last Sunday urging an immediate investigation after the spread of a copy of the so-called transaction document.
