PORT DICKSON – Former Chairman of Felda Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad is ready to cooperate with the police on issues surrounding the dubious Jalan Semarak FELDA land deals.
However, as reported in a local Malay newspaper, Berita Harian, Mohd Isa said, as of now, the police have yet to contact him to record any statements, he said after the current Chairman of Felda Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad lodged a police report.
“As of now, the police have yet to call me. Let the police do their work. I’m ready to give my cooperation to the police and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) when they need my assistance.
“I do not want to comment further as I do not want this issue to become a political polemic,” he said when met during the Teluk Kemang Parliamentary Warriors’ Day 2017 Fund Campaign at Batu 4.
Earlier, Mohd Isa, who is also the Patron for the Port Dickson Division of Malaysian Armer Forces Veteran Association said in his speech that he was not running away from the media. On the contrary, he needed to attend many programmes.
“Many said that I was running away. I did not. I have to attend many programmes such as here, Jempol and Seremban,” he said.
Felda is at risk of losing its rights over a strategic land in Jalan Semarak at the capital of Kuala Lumpur worth RM270 million when it changed hands through dubious transactions since 2015.
The transfers were believed to happen when Felda Investment Corporation Sdn Bhd (FIC) appointed a local company as the main developer since 3 June 2014, giving it the full power of attorney to develop the parcels of land.
Following that, the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) had established a special taskforce to investigate the transactions involving the transfer of ownership of the stated land. They also did not deny the possibilities that Mohd Isa may be called to assist in the investigation. – MalaysiaGazette
