Idris Jala has expertise to probe FGV issue: Paul Low

(The Sun Daily) – President and chief executive officer of Pemandu Associates Sdn Bhd, Datuk Seri Idris Jala has the expertise and experience to probe the issue involving Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV).

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Paul Low Seng Kuan believed the FGV issue was related to governance adding the FGV board of directors have a duty to ensure accountability.

Asked to comment on the issue, he said “I do not want to comment further. You have to ask them (FGV) what occurred and how they made decisions,” he told reporters after opening Tangkak District Drug Rehabilitation Centre at Bukit Kangkar, here today.

The Exit Centre (drug rehabilitation centre) was built in 2009 and had rehabilitated 71 drug addicts.

On June 6, FGV chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad issued a directive forcing four senior officers to go on leave so that internal auditors could probe the backlog of payments by Afghan-owned company Safitex to Delima Oil Products Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of FGV.
