NFC gave RM8m to Shaziman Mansor & NS Umno leaders, says PKR

Saifuddin said the donations would not have taken place if there were proper oversight.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 16 — The National Feedlot Centre (NFC) donated RM8 million worth of cattle to Datuk Shaziman Mansor and a “YB Yunus” in 2009, PKR said today.

Its secretary-general, Saifuddin Nasution, told reporters that the national cattle farming project’s financial records show that RM5.3 million of cattle was donated to Works Minister Shaziman on September 1, 2009.

The Machang MP also said the records showed that RM2.6 million of cattle was donated on November 30, 2009 to “YB Yunus”, adding that “there is only one YB Yunus in Negri Sembilan.”

Datuk Yunus Rahmat is currently Klawang assemblyman and a state executive councillor.

“These transactions should not happen if the government is really monitoring NFC,” he said of the project awarded to Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Jalil’s family.
