RM90 million fund suit: PAS refuses to interrupt legal process
PAS vice-president says Nik Amar Nik Abdullah says those who made the allegation have not been able to provide any evidence that PAS had received the money.
PAS vice-president Nik Amar Nik Abdullah says the decision was made upon advice from the partyâs lawyers.
KUANTAN: PAS leadershipâs move in not making any clarification on the allegation that the party had received funds of RM90 million from Umno was because the party does not wish to interrupt the legal process involving the partyâs lawsuit at the London High Court.
PAS vice-president Nik Amar Nik Abdullah said the decision was made upon advice from the partyâs lawyers as the lawsuit filed by party president Abdul Hadi Awang against Sarawak Report was scheduled for trial on April 30.
He said, so far, those who made the allegation had not been able to provide any evidence that PAS had received the money, allegedly given by Prime Minister Najib Razak to gain support from the party.
âWe are contesting all Umno seats â¦ why would Umno give us money to fight them?
âWouldnât that be ridiculous?â he said at the âYou Ask, PAS Answersâ talk here last night.
Meanwhile, Pahang PAS commissioner Rosli Jabar confirmed that no outside candidate would be brought in to represent the party in the state in the upcoming general election.
PAS will contest all 14 parliamentary seats and 40 state seats in Pahang, he added.
