Jasa chief alleges conspiracy in FGV
Special Affairs Department (Jasa) director-general Mohd Puad Zarkashi alleged there is a conspiracy within Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) to make its suspended chief executive officer (CEO) the "fall guy".
Puad claimed that this was to protect those aligned to the previous regime within FGV, despite the transfer of its former chairperson Mohd Isa Abdul Samad to Land Public Transport Commission (Spad), according to New Straits Times.
"I have learnt that there are efforts to put all the blame on Zakaria Arshad and to force his resignation or sacking.
"I question the motive behind this and believe that some individuals in the group are doing this so that they can appear to be innocent," Puad was quoted as saying in Batu Pahat today.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
