IT will not be an easy, straightforward process for Felda to regain ownership of several plots of land in Jalan Semarak from developer Synergy Promenade Sdn Bhd.

  • Agreed, this speedy return without cost is only eye candy considering the GE in weeks. It would be interesting when more of this blows up in front of CEO's face during the campaign period. Do nothing, done nothing case can be a discounted scenario already.

  • Messy because the real culprit who mastermind the transfer is at large. Once he or she is brought to justice guess everythg will be in order
