TTF: Mahathir man Apandi Ali should come clean on a scheme to drag investigations into the Felda Jalan Semarak land deal past the 14th general election (GE14). The embattled Attorney-General, the brother in-law of The Malaysian Insight’s (Insight’s) Jahabar Sadiq, should declare his associations with a Special Branch officer and two lawyers who have assumed new roles in a Mahathir funded shadow movement designed to cripple UMNO.
Yesterday, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun confirmed that probes into the land deal had been completed, that investigation papers had been delivered to the A-G’s Chambers (see news item below). However, the IGP may not be aware that a member of his own Special Branch unit is in cahoots with Apandi, Jahabar and two lawyers to turn Felda into Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s spin-zone.
Accordingly, the former premier is aware that 1MDB no longer serves as the ideal weapon to rock Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak’s boat. The minute a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into the nineties forex scandal revealed that Bank Negara suffered losses worth RM31.5 billion, plans were hatched to rattle Felda by raising every paltry issue that concerned settlers with nitpicking detail.
After finalising each angle of attack, Apandi would assign his brother in-law to dish out editorials implying that the Prime Minister’s ‘mismanagement’ of the agency threatened to jeopardise the Barisan Nasional base, currently spread across 54 parliamentary constituencies throughout the Peninsula of Malaysia. On the 6th of January 2018, Jahabar did just that by getting a certain Ikhwan Zulkaflee to pen an article under the Insight banner.
So what will it be, Apandi? Are you going to come out with the truth, or will I have the honour of revealing to Malaysians what a crook you are?
KUALA LUMPUR: Despite police handing in the investigation papers (IP) over its probe into the Felda Jalan Semarak land deal, there is more to be done.
Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali confirmed that the IP had indeed been handed over to the A-G’s Chambers.
However, he said the investigations were not done yet.
“I must correct the wrong perception that the investigations into the matter by the police have been completed. It is far from it,” he told the New Straits Times.
Apandi added that the IP was referred to the A-G’s Chambers for specific further instructions, the nature of which he was not obliged to disclose.
Yesterday, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun had said the investigations were completed and the IP handed over to the A-G’s Chambers.
Earlier this month, police recorded former Felda chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad’s statement as part of their probe into the Jalan Semarak land scandal.
It was learnt that police had recorded statements from at least nine people, including those on Felda’s board of directors at the time the deal was made, as well as developer Synergy Promenade Sdn Bhd (SPSB).
It was reported last month that Felda was at risk of losing ownership of its Jalan Semarak land, worth more than RM200 million, in what had been described as a “dubious deal” conducted in 2015.
The ownership transfer of the land took place when FIC Sdn Bhd appointed SPSB as its main developer on June 3, 2014, and it was granted full power of attorney to develop the land.
Felda has since been handed back the land.
