Lajim issued bankruptcy notice
The notice, which was published in Sabah newspaper Daily Express today, said Lajim, the founder of Parti Harapan Rakyat Sabah, has seven days to settle his RM160,951.81 debt with CIMB Islamic Bank Berhad.
He could also opt to obtain a court order to set aside the notice issued by Messrs Wong & Shim, or counter claim an amount to the bank.
Lajim, who is also former Sabah PKR liaison chairman, told The Star Online that his lawyers were handling the matter which would be resolved soon.
He added that the debts were from delayed payments on his credit card.
Lajim joined PKR in 2012, but quit the party last year. Before that, he was with Umno where he was a supreme council member.
He also served as the federal deputy minister of housing and local government.
According to Lajim, the bankruptcy notice has helped clear him of allegations such as that he received money from the Barisan Nasional (BN) government to create a rift among the state’s opposition parties, The Star Online reported.
“They spread all kinds of stories that I had received RM30 million or RM60 million from Umno to form my party.
“If I had that kind of money, would this (bankruptcy) be a problem,” said the Klias assemblyman.
