    I do hope that the patients will not suffer because of this.
    But her comments are made after the NKF CEO himself admitted that there is nothing defamatory with the report. $600k is not peanuts when it comes from donations.

    If the patients suffer because of this than we will have seen the true colours of NKF since they have enough in their reserves ( $260m at last count I think )to last the next 30 years.

    Why is it peculiar. Why would I give money to a charitable organization that will only use my money 40 years later when I can help those who really needs it now?

    I just find NKF these day become too commercial and really go for money.
    Some of the movie recently at channel 8, 9pm starring Christoper Lee as Youfu, I think the movie really over emphasis on the cancer and I am not sure if NKF is behind this movie. But it just give me a very fake feelings about NKF behind all this movie.
    However I have to admit the message from the movie is very good.

    I hope NKF not become too Commercialize and money minded.

    i think enough have been said, our stand is very clear and we don't have to explain anymore. let's see what NKF got to say after this saga, the ball is in their court.

    - Does that someone has the rights to do so?
    - will CCD acts on his lodgement?
    - if eventually CCD finds no fault in their investigation, is that someone liable to another "sue" by NKF?

    How can a organisation be allowed to sue a person for lodging an official complaint with CAD, and if CAD takes up the complaint and further investigates, won't that also pull CAD into a world of perjury and party to supposed defamation claim by NKF?

    If CAD chooses to investigate, it means there is something worth their time.If they do not, in what way would you be sued?By talking about NKF to a stat board?Whoa there..this is the NKF,not NSA and their Echelon system

    yeah, I guess it's ok to pay an OSCENE salary because they've built up OBSCENE reserves by denying legitimate claimants from receiving aid. That makes sense.

    The patients suffer? Stop making it sound like NKF will die overnight. They can run for more than 5 years if they receive NO DONATIONS, continue to run ALL their normal programmes, and on top of it STOP CHARGING patients as well.

    You seem to be extremely pro-NKF.

    Well, do (I mean 'DO') remember to check your statement(s) every month just to make sure they don't re-link it back again. Cos this happens to my friend debit/credit card after he recieved a new one. Cheers dude.

    Why are we talking abt CAD? Is there any fraud committed? Guys, don't get overboard and let the incident cloud your judgement....
