Examine NGOs’ activities and financial status regularly, home minister tells RoS amid spotlight on Aman Palestin

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 4 — Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail has reportedly directed the Registrar of Societies (RoS) to periodically examine the activities and financial status of registered organisations.

“If there are 70,000 to 80,000 organisations registered under RoS. From time to time, they can conduct random periodic checks,” he was quoted as saying by Free Malaysia Today.

Last week, the MACC said it froze 41 bank accounts linked to charity group Aman Palestin and several other related companies, and had also raided the group where several gold bullion were seized.

Aman Palestin later demanded the release of the accounts, and threatened to sue to regain access.
