MCA has denied allegations that a division leader was involved in collecting money in exchange for citizenship for a Chinese national.

Deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said none of the party members was involved in unscrupulous activities.He warned that action will be taken if members are found to be abusing party positions.

“If anyone abuses his or her party position, either to ask or apply for citizenship and get money in return, we will take stern action,” Wee said.

“There is no such thing in MCA,” he said at a press conference after attending the Malaysia-China Teens Calligraphy Competition “Qi Gong” Cup 2017 on Sunday.

Wee was responding to allegations by DAP and to a police report that a person claiming to be an MCA division member had asked a Chinese national for RM165,000 to secure a Malaysian citizenship, The Star reported.

The person is believed to have lodged a report at the Damansara police station on Aug 5, alleging that an MC division member had promised him in January that he could obtain Malaysian citizenship and a blue identity card for his Chinese national friend for a fee of RM400,000, with RM165,000 to be paid first as a deposit.
