NewGen Party lodges report against former sec-gen, claims RM105k missing


PUTRAJAYA: The New Generation Party (NewGen Party) today lodged a police report against its former secretary-general, S. Gobi Krishnan, for alleged breach of trust.

NewGen Party acting secretary-general Mohamad Zaini Jaafar claimed that Gobi Krishnan had received RM105,000 from its former president Datuk G. Kumar Aamaan and several individuals, meant for the party – but the money was never deposited into the party's account.

"We conducted our own internal investigation and found that the party's bank account has not been active since 2013.

"The money is believed to have been deposited into a bank account of a company owned by Gobi Krishnan.

"I made this report because I want the police to investigate him and find out what happened to the money," Zaini said after filing a police report at the Sepang Police headquarters, today.

He said Gobi Krishnan has been suspended from the NewGen Party on suspicion of embezzling the party's funds.

On the matter of the party’s non-existent headquarters, which was revealed by the Registry of Societies (RoS) this week, Zaini said he leaves it to the RoS to conduct an investigation.

"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?" he said.

RoS director-general Mohammad Razin Abdullah had said on April 20 that the party's headquarters, which was said to be located in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, does not exist.
