The foreigners at a Bangi resort charged by PAS to be candidates for citizenship were actually attending an "entrepreneurship course", according to a report in today's Sinar Harian, quoting the Sepang OCPD.
Supt Imran Abdul Rahman said: "The information we received showed that all the foreigners at Desa Pinggiran Putra were there to attend an entrepeunership course."
According to the Malay daily's report, Imran confirmed that he had received a report claiming that some 240 foreigners were brought to the National Registration Department (NRD) for the purpose of getting them citizenship, enabling them to vote.
However, following an investigation, the claim was found to be untrue, the report said.
"They (foreigner) weren't brought to NRD as claimed by the parties involved," said Imran
Yesterday, the NRD had also shot down the allegations yesterday, stating that it was unaware of any programmes being held by it over the last few days.
On Wednesday, PAS supporters kept watch outside the resort, claiming that some 240 foreigners were being granted citizenship inside.
Six buses arrived to ferry the foreigners, under police watch , a few hours after the PAS activists left.
