20 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) nationwide are being probed by police for allegedly receiving foreign funds to topple the government.
Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamed said the NGOs are registered under the Registrar of Societies (ROS) but are receiving international funding to topple the government which is a threat to the national security.
“We have identified about 20 NGOs allegedly involved in the deceitful activities but at the moment we can’t name them as investigations are ongoing.
“We just need to let the police complete their investigation,” he told reporters after launching Muslimah Young Entrepreneurs Icon Search 2016 at the Berjaya Waterfront Hotel in Johor Baru on Friday, Dec 16.
Nur Jazlan singled out Bersih, which he said is a company registered under the Registrar of Companies (ROC) as an advertising company.
“It is an advertising company but it is instead involved in rallies and demonstrations.
“They also allowed Opposition leaders to become involved in their rallies, which are clearly motivated by a political agenda,” he said.
Nur Jazlan said that once the investigations are completed, a case report will be handed over to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for prosecution.
