‘I’m not involved’: Shahrizat says it again

Quizzed on the latest revelation by PKR concerning a luxury condo in Singapore, the minister says that she is merely the wife of the NFC chairman.

(Free Malaysia Today) – Shahrizat Abdul Jalil today dodged questions on the latest RM10 million Singapore condominium revelation by PKR and reiterated her non-involvement in the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal.

Bombarded with questions from reporters at a charity event here, the women, family and community development minister again said she has no ties with the national cattle farming project apart from being “the wife” of its chairman.

“I’ve said it before… legally and professionally, I am not involved in the NFC. I am just the wife of the NFC chairman. Don’t all women and families have husband,” she said.

In the latest assault against the Umno Wanita chief, PKR leaders claimed yesterday Shahrizat had used taxpayers’ money meant to finance the NFC to purchase a luxury condominium in Singapore.

The unit was purchased under her family’s name.

Although the paper trail to prove that the purchase was made using NFC cash was not available, PKR leaders said the presence of several of Shahrizat’s private businesses in the island state allegedly connected to NFC’s funds was strong enough to suggest a link.
