The Kuala Lumpur High Court today heard that the purchase of Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites (MPHS) in Sarawak by Felda Investment Corporation Sdn Bhd (FIC) did not adhere to the mandate set by Felda.

Former FIC chief executive officer Mohd Zaid Abdul Jalil said this was as Felda had set that any investment exceeding RM100 million must first be brought to the Felda board of directors (BOD) for approval.

“It definitely did not follow Felda's mandate.
