So, who received cheques from Najib’s AmIslamic accounts?

What is it: The Centre for Strategic Engagement Sdn Bhd is a private consulting firm established in 2010, specialising in public policy research with a special interest in media, policy and political communications.
On its website, Cense boasted a client portfolio of MPs, ministers and policymakers.
It was co-founded by Rita Sim and Rose Ismail, both currently holding the rank of directors with Fui K. Soong holding the post of CEO and director.

Later in August that same year, The Edge Malaysia Weekly reported that Cense had started another radio station: Chinese-language business-centric CityPlus FM.
