FGV Holdings Bhd has filed a suit against its former chairperson Mohd Isa Abdul Samad and former group president Mohd Emir Mavani Abdullah for over RM12 million alleging that the acquisition of luxury condominiums in the capital city was made at significantly higher prices than market value.
This is the second suit filed against Isa and Emir by the palm oil giant in recent days. The condominiums were allegedly purchased by the duo on behalf of the company.
The latest suit filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court alleged that the company had purchased two condominium units in Troika in Kuala Lumpur, "at prices significantly above market value and without proper due diligence”.
FGV also alleged the wrongful and unauthorised use and possession of the units by the duo.
Aside from that, Emir, who is the former FGV CEO, is accused of allegedly misusing a number of cars purchased by the company on top of misusing his petrol benefits.
This was revealed in a filing made by the company to Bursa Malaysia yesterday in which the company stated that it was seeking RM12.2 million on top of damages.
Of this amount, FGV stated it was seeking RM3.2 million from Emir over the use of cars and petrol benefits.
It was previously reported that FGV had filed a suit against 14 of its former directors or executives to recover RM514 million, including from Isa and Emir.
The sum was to cover the losses due to the 2014 acquisition of Asian Plantation Limited (APL) – a Singapore-based company with assets in Sarawak but listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
