PKR: Compel Shahrizat's kin to put up assets as collateral
PKR wants the government to compel former federal minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil’s family to put up their assets as collateral until the RM250 million soft loan to the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) is redeemed.
Its strategy director Rafizi Ramli also recommended that if the company fails to commence repayment of the loan, which has been in default since January, the government should auction of their assets “to recover the public funds”.
“(Prime Minister) Najib Abdul Razak’s most important responsibility right now is getting the RM250 million loan back,” said Rafizi at a press conference at the Parliament lobby.
“As the prime minister and the finance minister, he must use the powers vested in him to get the consent of Shahrizat’s family to have their assets given as collateral to the government,” said Rafizi.
