AS those who exposed the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) scandal are marched off to jail, the site of the ambitious cattle rearing project lies in a tangle of weeds.

No cows and no workers were spotted at the 600-ha NFC site in Gemas, Negri Sembilan, where RM250 million in public funds were sunk into a project that has since been left to rot.

  • This is the kind of FAKE news that the Government wanted to combat. Now I wonder, if there's no NFC then why was Rafizi convicted? There's no ground for him to be behind bars....oh probably he had said a Fake investment! Know I got it. Goosh, things are not very clear these days in Bolehland....

  • Where's the MACC, Police, taskforce investigation on this? RCI maybe? RM250 mil is a lot of money, imagine how many 10As students who will not be getting scholarship to study overseas? Pakatan must compile this into list of losses and shenanigans by inept Najib for GE14 ceramah fodder.

  • The rundown guardhouses, tangling weeds, and the abandoned site is a testimony to the gross injustice n corruption committed by the Umno govt against the rakyat n the hard earned taxpayers money that has been siphoned by Umno leaders to enrich themselves illegally. Yet she has the conscience to contest in the next GE.

  • Bottom line is Malaysia do not protect whistle blowers. The people have seen that in every scandal of which, ironically, the government always has a finger on. The Whistleblower Protection Act 2010 as a law, is just that of its name - all an act.

  • Rafizi got the information from Dr Salleh bank account, and exposed the news that Dr Salleh had misappropriated NFC fund to buy expensive condos. As a result Dr Salleh account was frozen, the fund for NFC was withhold and withdrawn, thus the RM250 NFC project and several of his companies was stagnated or jeopardized. During the subsequent court case, he lost millions to lawyers and many business setback, His wife lost the political post and BN got very unpopular and lost many parliamentary and state seats

    The court cleared Dr Salleh of any financial misdeeds and misappropriation, he purchased the condos using his other company funding not NFC.

    Rafizi thought he was the righteous whiselblower, had leaked the news to destroy BN politically, it was a FAKE news. The destruction and the loss faced by the innocent parties were enormous and irreversible. Dr Salleh got only 200K (not enough to pay a lawyer), and Rafizi got 30 months in jail, he feel he is innocent and will continue to appeal.

    Yes, fake news are very destructive, all those who participated is spreading fake news have committed heinous sins, In the hereafter, they will know the actual consequent.

  • Guess, in order to bring justice on such cases for the sake of rakyat, something have to done to bring trust and confident to rakyat which till today still talking about it. Making thing even worst after knowing and see the pictures that the said feedlot program land is left abandoned for more than 4 years while millions of rakyat money had been spend down the drain and not accounted for. If earlier once the feedlot program by NFC is abandoned measures should be taken by offering the said land to small enterpruner breeder in order to cut down the losses. By now the land will be full of cows
