Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:01 AM

IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said it was against the law to receive funds from foreign entities that have an agenda against the government. ― Picture by Choo Choy MayLocal groups may accept foreign funds but may not use these for illegal or unconstitutional purposes, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said today.

Khalid also asserted that it was against the law to receive funds from foreign entities that have an agenda against the government.

“It depends for what purpose the funds are for….. you are looking for trouble if it is used for illegal and unconstitutional purposes,” he told Malay Mail Online when contacted.

Khalid was asked to comment on DAP MP Tony Pua remarks yesterday, in which the latter questioned the need to criminalise foreign funding to is used to protect and improve the country’s democracy.

In his speech at the Free Maria campaign launched, the Petaling Jaya Utara MP said that like Bersih 2.0, “hundreds and thousands” of other NGOs and government-linked agencies have also received foreign funding.

The police recently detained Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah using the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma).

Khalid linked this to funds Bersih 2.0 previously received from the Open Society Foundations (OSF) that he alleged was out to topple the Malaysian government.

Police raided Bersih 2.0’s office in Petaling Jaya ahead of the Bersih 5 street protest last week, and said they seized documents on the foreign funding.

The police, according to Khalid, have received more than 15 police reports regarding Bersih 2.0 activities and alleged foreign funding.
