KUALA LUMPUR – MCA is not involved in any racket offering Malaysian citizenship in return for money, the Barisan Nasional party’s deputy president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong said today.
He was responding to allegations, purportedly by political rival DAP and 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 for a friend, The Star Online reported today.
“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.
“There is no such thing in MCA,” Wee was quoted telling reporters after attending the Malaysia-China Teens Calligraphy Competition here.
Wee was also reported telling the federal Opposition to investigate thoroughly before making allegations that could confuse the public.
