Ultimatum to Shahrizat: Answer charges or else

Opposition group visits National Feedlot Centre’s farm in Gemas.

(Free Malaysia Today) – PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli claims he has more information than already revealed about Shahrizat Abdul Jalil’s involvement in the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) and has threatened to expose them unless she responds to allegations made in recent days.

Rafizi visited the NFC farm here yesterday, a day after he alleged in a press conference that most of the beef produced by the centre is supplied to luxury restaurants owned by the family of Shahrizat, the Minister for Women, Family and Community Development.

Agriculture Minister Noh Omar had earlier confirmed that members of her family manage the luxury restaurants.

“We want to know how much exactly was spent for this farm,” Rafizi said after his visit.

“How many head of cattle are bred here and how many are slaughtered per day?”

He posed the questions in front of more than 70 people outside the farm. Most of them were journalists and publicity officials of opposition parties.

“Based on the information I have, they are supposed to breed 60,000 cows per year but I learnt that only 8, 000 cows were produced over a period of three years” he said.

Rafizi was accompanied on his visit by five Negeri Sembilan state assemblymen—Mohd Taufek Abdul Ghani (PAS-Paroi), M Ravi (PKR-Port Dickson), Aminuddin Harun (PKR-Sikamat), P Gunasekaran (DAP-Senawang) and Ng Chin Tsai (DAP-Temiang). Also in his delegation was Fariz Musa, the chief coordinator of Jingga 13, a PKR-linked NGO.
