“Zakaria urged the MACC to investigate allegations of improprities in FGV and asked the commission to probe the parties behind the contracts”
PUTRAJAYA: Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd group president and CEO Datuk Zakaria Arshad (pic) has arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission headquarters here.
He arrived at 2.25pm alone.
Zakaria said the MACC had asked him to assist in investigations into alleged improprities involving the company.
“I am also here to submit some documents to the MACC,” he told reporters.
Zakaria confirmed that the documents involved FGV.
On Tuesday, Zakaria and three other FGV officers were asked to take indefinite leave of absence, which chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad said was a decision made by the entire board.
The other three are FGV chief financial officer Ahmad Tifli Mohd Talha, FGV Trading chief executive officer Ahmad Salman Omar and Delima Oil Products senior general manager Kamarzaman Abd Karim.
The board’s decision came a day after he was told to resign by Isa following a series of board meetings since May 31 concerning delayed payments owed to Delima Oil by Safitex, an Afghan company with an array of businesses and headquartered in Dubai.
Following his suspension, Zakaria urged the MACC to investigate allegations of improprities in FGV and asked the commission to probe the parties behind the contracts.
