PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission director of investigations Datuk Mustafa Ali is heading a special team to focus on the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) issue.

The MACC said in a statement that it has received a new report against the NFC and would investigate the allegation without fear or favour.

"We have acted accordingly by collecting evidence and statements since the issue was reported in the Auditor-General's Report.

"A large part of the issues brought up in the latest complaint (against NFC) had already been acted upon,” said the statement.

The MACC stressed that it could not divulge details of investigations as stipulated under Section 29(4) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009.

“We call on the parties to give their full co-operation by not politicising the issues which could affect our investigation,” the statement said.

The NFC had come under fire after the Auditor-General, in its 2010 report released in October had highlighted the shortcomings of the cattle breeding project.

The NFC's executive chairman is Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail, whose wife is Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.
