Former DAP vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim said his ex-party leaders should reveal their source of funding as all attempts to get such information had been futile.
He said when he was a DAP member and part of its top echelon, only those in the inner circle knew where the party got its money from.
Tunku Abdul Aziz claimed DAP’s financial report had never detailed its source of funding and if there was any issue raised over the matter, party leaders would deny every allegation thrown at them.
“The proof is, for as long as (I) was a DAP member and part of its top echelon, only those in the inner circle would know where the party gets its money from.
“Every time (I) took a look at the party’s treasury and asked from where did it get such funds, the CEC would never give an answer. But the party could purchase a building to be made its headquarters.
“From where does DAP gets its money?” he questioned.
Tunku Abdul Aziz claimed he wouldn’t be surprised if tycoons such as Robert Kuok had also been discreetly channelling political funds to DAP and the transaction was only known to a few within the party’s central executive committee (CEC).
He claimed that with such confidentiality, DAP leaders could publicly deny each and every fund made which could link the party and the “Sugar King”, or any other millionaire in the country.
He was commenting on claims made by blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin that Kuok harboured an agenda to replace the government with one led by the Dap.
Raja Petra had claimed that to realise such an ambition, Kuok aspired to spark a wave of change among the Malays.
The blogger claimed that when the New Economic Policy (NEP) was launched in 1970, Kuok was said to have protested the move before Umno leaders, as reported by Singapore’s The Straits Times on Dec 4 last year.
