Why Have The MACC And Police Not Taken Any Action When The Law Minister Himself Has Said That The RM250 Million NFC Cows And Condos Scandal Is Tantamount To Constructive Breach Of Trust ?(en/cn)

The RM250 million NFC Cows For Condos scandal reached a new sensational level with Minister in Prime Minister’s Department and de facto Law Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said that the National Feedlot Corporation (NFCorp) has breached its loan conditions with the Federal Government. Nazri was reported to have said: “In a way, there has been a constructive breach of trust. The money, which was meant for the cattle industry, was used for something else. The money was specifically given out based on a project given to NFCorp, that it could raise cattle and sell (it) at a cheaper price.”

In other words, we have a damning indictment by the Law Minister himself that the RM 250 million loan used to pay for Shahrizat and her family’s personal expenses, purchase of two luxury condominium units in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur is a criminal breach of trust. Malaysians want to know why has neither the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) nor the police taken any action on those responsible in the RM250million NFC fiasco?

On 22 December 2011, the MACC announced that a special team headed by MACC investigating director Datuk Mustafar Ali has been formed to investigate claims of misappropriation in the NFC issue. A month later, Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman Azmi Khalid stated that they will wait for the police and the MACC to complete their investigations before deciding if it should continue with its own probe.

One week ago, Federal Commercial Crimes director Syed Ismail Syed Azizan said that the police was nearly done with their investigations and would be re-submitting their investigation papers to the Attorney-General. This will in fact be their second submission as the Attorney-General had returned their initial findings on January 17 and requested for further investigations.

In other words, there has been a merry-go-round of investigations and shifting of responsibilities but not a single mode of action has been taken! Law Minister Nazri Aziz has made it clear that NFCorp has breached its loan conditions and committed constructive breach of trust by utilising public funds from a RM250million government loan to purchase luxury condominiums worth millions in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. There are now numerous allegations that other luxury condominiums have been bought overseas as well.

In developed countries committed to fighting corruption, failure to hold an open tender is tantamount to a corrupt act. Already the failure to hold an open tender for the NFC has even been highlighted by Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz. Malaysians now demand to know who is sleeping on the job and why MACC and the police have not acted against those responsible when the Law Minister Nazri Aziz himself has said that the RM250 million NFC cows and condos scandal is tantamount to constructive breach of trust.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2012年2月15日在吉隆坡发表声明:

当首相署法律部长认为,国家养牛中心及公寓2亿5000万令吉丑闻属于推定失信(Constructive breach of trust),为什么反贪污委员会及警察还没有采取任何行动?

养牛公寓2亿5000万令吉丑闻已经达到一个新的沸腾点,就连首相署掌管法律的部长拿督斯里纳兹里都认为,国家养牛中心已经违背它与联邦政府贷款的条件。纳兹里认为,这确实是推定失信。这笔钱本来是应该用在养牛业,但是却用在其它用途。国家发出这笔贷款是基于国家养牛中心的计划,它应该用来养牛,以更低的价格出售牛肉。

换句话说,我们的法律部长已经强烈谴责上述养牛公司使用2亿5000万令吉来支付莎丽扎及其家人的私人花费、两幢吉隆坡孟沙区的公寓,已经是推定失信。国人要知道,为什么反贪污委员会及警方都还没有采取行动,对付这起2亿5000万令吉丑闻的罪魁祸首?

2011年12月22日,反贪委宣布已经成立一个以调查总监拿督慕斯达法为首的特别小组,来调查国家养牛中心所涉及的不当行为。一个月后,国会公账调查委员会主席阿兹米说,他们会等到警察及反贪委完成他们的调查,再决定是否进行本身的调查工作。

一个星期前,联邦商业罪案总监赛依斯迈尔说,警方的调查工作已经接近尾声,他们需要向总检察长提呈调查报告。这将是他们第二次呈交报告,总检察长已经在1月17日退还他们的初步调查报告,并要求他们进一步调查。

换句话说,调查及找出祸首的工作一直在兜圈子,但是还没有任何人被对付!法律部长纳兹里已经讲得很清楚,国家养牛中心利用国家的2亿5000万令吉贷款来购买吉隆坡孟沙区的豪华公寓,已经违反了它的贷款条件、属于推定失信。还有许多有待证示的言论也指控他们在国外购买豪华公寓。

在那些立志肃贪的发达国家 ,如果没有进行公开招标已经形同贪污。关于这点,拿督斯里纳兹里已经点出国家养牛中心计划没有公开招标的问题。国民现在要知道,到底是谁玩忽职守,当首相署法律部长认为,国家养牛中心及公寓2亿5000万令吉丑闻确实是推定失信,为什么反贪污委员会及警察还没有采取任何行动?
