Nazri: Government not delaying prosecuting NFCorp

KUALA LUMPUR, March 3 – Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz today denied claims the federal government was dragging its feet in prosecuting the National Feedlot Corporation (NFCorp) directors, insisting the police were still investigating the case.

“We are recommending to the Attorney-General’s Chambers that all NFCorp directors be charged,” he told The Malaysian Insider on February 25.
NFCorp, which operates the National Feedlot Centre (NFC), is chaired by federal minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil’s husband, Datuk Seri Mohamad Salleh Ismail. Their three children also hold executive posts in the company.
It has denied CBT in its RM250 million loan agreement with the government and has accused the police of “unfairly” pre-empting the charge.
Yesterday, deputy Inspector-General of Police, Datuk Seri Khalid Abu Bakar confirmed news that the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) had sent back the investigation papers to the police, purportedly for further investigation without disclosing the details.
Nazri, who is the de facto law minister, also advised NFCorp executives from making any more statements pending police investigation.
“The (NFCorp) management should remain silent and not interfere in the police investigation or decision of the Attorney-General (AG). The company may or may not be prosecuted,” the national news agency quoted him saying.
The NFC hit the headlines after it made it into the Auditor-General’s Report last year, and has continued to hog the limelight after it was linked to Shahrizat and her family.
