Controversy

The president of Parti Perpaduan Rakyat Sabah identified as Mohd Arshad Abdul Mualap, 48, has been detained with another man – Mohamad Amkah Ahmad, 46, in Subang Jaya on 22 June 2022 and were charged in court for allegedly being the mastermind of an identification document scam syndicate.
