PORT DICKSON: Former Felda chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad (pic) is ready to cooperate with authorities over the issue of ownership of the Felda land in Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur.

He said that the police had yet to contact him for his statement, after current Felda chairman Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad lodged a police report on the matter.

‘Thus far, the police have yet to call me. Let the police do their job, but I am willing to cooperate if the police or Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) calls.

“I don't want to comment further as I do not want this to become a political issue,” he said when met after attending the Teluk Kemang parliamentary constituency's Warriors' Day fund-raising campaign at Batu 4, here on Monday (Dec 25).

The media had reported that Felda was at risk of losing over RM200 million from the dubious land deal in 2015.

The land title transfer is believed to have occurred after Felda Investment Corporation (FIC) had appointed a local company as the main developer on June 3, 2014, and awarded it full power of attorney to develop the land.

Following this, the Royal Malaysian Police set up a special task force to investigate the matter and did not rule out calling Mohd Isa to assist in the investigation.

Earlier, Mohd Isa, who is also the patron of the Port Dickson Army Veterans Association, denied the allegations that he had been avoiding the media.

“Many said I ran away (from the media). I have been busy attending various programmes here, and in Jempol and Seremban,” he said. -Bernama
