Star: PETALING JAYA: About 40 medical practitioners, led by Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) past president Datuk Dr P. Krishnan, will petition for an emergency general meeting (EGM) tomorrow to discuss issues raised by the Registrar of Societies (ROS).
“This meeting is to justify the issues raised by the ROS and to take necessary action against the office-bearers for wilfully contravening the constitution which is against the Societies Act, and for putting the association into public disrepute,” Dr Krishnan said yesterday.
He added that the MMA Council had not acted at all on the issues.
“The current office-bearers intend to hold a council meeting only in January and that is simply too late.
“I feel they are not at all bothered by the seriousness of the accusations that the ROS has made against them,” Dr Krishnan said.
The association could be deregistered if it did not explain the violations to the Societies Act 1966 by Dec 28, said Dr Krishnan.
“This is a serious matter and we will press for the EGM to resolve this matter before the deadline,” he added.
