Chairman Tan Sri Shahrir Samad said Felda is already working with the MACC to battle corruption within the organisation. ― Bernama picThe Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) has already taken measures to fight corruption within the organisation, its chairman Tan Sri Shahrir Samad said today.

He was responding to two non-government organisations that teamed up yesterday to sign a Memorandum of Understanding aimed to fight corruption in Felda.

“We are already working with MACC, and we have already done pledges of integrity with MACC and also protection for whistleblowers,” he told reporters here, referring to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

He labelled the actions of Anak, an NGO for the children of Felda settlers, and Hisbah Centre for Reform in signing the MoU as “syok sendiri” or self-gratification.

“We have taken the necessary steps even before these two organisations,” he said.

Shahrir said that any effective measure to combat measure must start from Felda’s own management and leadership.

“It will be effective when it starts at all levels, from top to bottom,” he said.

He also said that the NGOs are targeting certain Felda areas just to gain “media exposure” for their efforts.

  1. Like the biggest thief in Putrajaya asking the MACC to arrest some greedy small thieves? Malaysians are not stupid.
