Settlers want to know what happened during the administration of Shahrir Samad which caused Felda a huge financial burden of RM6 billion.

The Council of Eminent Persons has agreed that there is a need to establish a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate Felda’s alleged misappropriation, said Persatuan Anak Peneroka Felda Kebangsaan.

Its chairman Mazlan Aliman, who was met after a briefing by the Council at the Ilham Tower, said this was one of his many concerns which were voiced out during the 40-minute meeting.

“Felda settlers are clueless about what happened during the administration of Tan Sri Shahrir Samad that caused Felda to have a huge financial burden of some RM6 billion.
