PETALING JAYA: Former Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad has been summoned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to have his statement recorded.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki confirmed that Isa and his wife Puan Sri Bibi Sharliza Mohd Khalid will be at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya on Wednesday at 10am.
The MACC is investigating FGV over claims of improprieties and abuses of power that were brought to their attention following a management crisis that led to the group president and CEO Datuk Zakaria Arshad and three key executives being asked to take a leave of absence.
On Monday, prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said that Isa will be acting chairman of the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) while Tan Sri Sulaiman Mahbob will be acting chairman of FGV.
On June 8, MACC conducted an eight-hour operation at the FGV headquarters to retrieve documents related to its probe into alleged improprieties involving the company.
MACC previously said its investigation was focused on six issues involving FGV, and the commission will soon call witnesses and those involved to aid in the probe.
Datuk Zakaria Arshad was suspended as FGV group president and CEO on June 6.
