RM250mil NFC debacle: More corruption revelations from PKR this afternoon

RM250mil NFC debacle: More corruption revelations from PKR this afternoon
PKR leaders will be revealing further scandals of alleged corruption and financial impropriety in the RM250 million NFC debacle involving the family of Umno minister Shahrizat Jalil.
PKR vice president N Surendran, Women's chief Zuraida Kamaruddin and Subang MP Sivarasa Rasiah will be holding a press conference at 2pm in the PKR headquarters in Tropicana, Petaling Jaya this afternoon.
They declined to give any hints but in the past week, Umno has tried to whitewash the scandal, ignoring the Shahrizats' purchase of condominiums, a luxury car, expensive overseas trips and holidays, purportedly using money from the RM250 million government soft loan granted to incubate the NFC cattle breeding project.
Rush to reject RCI raises eyebrows
Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, who was the Agriculture minister approving the project to the Shahrzats, has refused to hold a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the debacle, despite the possible abuse of public money.

"Malaysians everywhere are asking who is Muhyiddin to reject the call for a RCI into the “cattle condo” scandal when Muhyiddin himself, as the Agriculture and Agro-based Minister who approved the controversial project back in 2006, would himself be one of the subjects and personalities of any RCI investigation?" DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang said in a statement on Sunday.
"It smacks of conflict of interest on Muhyiddin’s part and he should exclude himself from any decision-making as to whether there should be a RCI into the cattle condo scandal, instead of being so gung-ho in opposing the proposal."
It is likely that at this afternoon's press conference, the PKR leaders will present further information of abuse of power and graft, further strengthening the growing view that a full-scale inquiry must be carried out.
