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.
“I have urged for an RCI to be established so that all misappropriation can be exposed, and the Council agreed that there is a need,” he told reporters when met at the Ilham Tower lobby earlier. – Malay Mail
