PKR leader lodges police report over abuse of grants claim

MIRI, May 17: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Hulu Rajang chairman Abun Sui Anyit lodged a police report, here, this afternoon concerning a recent claim by Sarawak Report that rural grants had been abused to fund an online news portal.

He urged the relevant authorities to probe the allegation.

“This police report has nothing to do with any news portal,” he emphasised when met by reporters outside Miri Central police station (CPS).

Abun said he would also lodge a similar report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Miri branch.
