NFC case suspect remand extended

(Bernama) – The businessman detained to facilitate investigations on the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) case has been remanded for a further three days starting yesterday.  

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigation director Datuk Mustafar Ali said the 45-year-old man was initially remanded for two days, until yesterday. 

“The remand was extended to complete and facilitate the case under the MACC Act 2009,” he said to Bernama when contacted today.  

The issue on NFC surfaced following the 2010 Auditor-General’s Report in October, which stated the centre had failed to comply with the objectives of its formation and when opposition parties alleged misappropriation of its funds, particularly in relation to the purchase of a luxury condominium in the city. 
Meanwhile, NFC chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Salleh Ismail said in a statement today that the businessman was not related to him or other members of his family.

The individual was also not and has never been an employee of NFC, he said.
