MACC rapped for refusing to take action in NFC saga

PAS central committee member Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad said the inaction on the part of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) over recent revelations of mismanagement of government money by the embattled National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) had only confirmed its double standards.
“Why until today there has been no action from MACC? If this issue were related to PR, an immediate investigation would have been launched,” lamented Dzulkefly.

The Kuala Selangor member of parliament said the NFC saga was a clear failure of prime minister Najib Razak’s much publicised national transformation programme to battle wastages and corruption.
What is there to be defended when even the Auditor General’s report says so? Najib has lost both credibility and qualification to bring the reforms he lauded,” stressed Dzulkefly.
In a statement on its website, MACC said the Commission was powerless to act against NFC, a company owned by the family of Wanita UMNO head Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, on the allegation of abusing public funds to purchase a RM9.8 million condominium.
Saying the complaint fell falls under the Penal Code and not under the MACC Act 2009, it said the matter should be handled by the police.
Yesterday, the NFC drew criticism from a BN backbencher, Kinabatangan MP Bung Mokhtar, demanding Shahrizat's resignation.
“My stand is clear, like the Feedlot issue, I agree that this is not the work of UMNO, this is an individual, and this individual must be responsible. Although she is a UMNO minister, but who is she? If she’s wrong, it’s better to resign than to be a liability for UMNO and BN,” he said.
