It appears that the Registrar of Societies (ROS) has a new mission: to contribute RM10000 to societies for their contribution to social development, says our correspondent.

At least, that was the reason given for dishing out cheques of RM10,000 to various societies in Sarawak in the recent elections (see, picture of one instance above).

Surely the Registrar of Societies was not engaging in illicit campaigning on behalf of the BN! Although one naturally wonders where did the Registrar of Societies get the funds to dish out such amounts. An earlier report had the ROS giving out RM200,000 to 20 societies in Miri.

Nevertheless, all societies should take the Registrar of Societies at its word – that it is giving out these contributions in recognition of the contribution of societies to social development – and promptly queue up for the contribution owing to them.
