Rafizi is bent to do more expose on NFC
KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Keadilan Rakyat strategic director Rafizi Ramli said he is prepared to face legal or criminal actions for the series of expose on National Feedlot Corporation (NFC).
Speaking to The Mole Rafizi said, "I will just wait and see if any legal or criminal issues will arise from our expose."

"If and when it happens, I believe we will manage it as much as the law prescribes us to. There is enough law for us to refer to and we will not be afraid to face the authority."

The chief executive officer of Selangor Economic Advisory Office was commenting on a blog post which questioned whether Rafizi was immune against the law under Section 97, Banking and Financial Institutions Act 1989.

Commenting on a
news report following PKR's latest revelation involving NFC, blogger SatD referred to the act which stated that "no person who has any information or document which to his knowledge has been disclosed in contravention of subsection (1) shall in any manner however disclose the same to any other person."

The blogger however stated that NFC should publish all its assets and related party transaction/investment activities and let the people evaluate on their investments.

Rafizi on the other hand remains unperturbed, saying that blog postings as such are meant to divert people from the real issue shrouding the NFC.
"I believe this is a clear attempt by pro-Umno bloggers to divert the attention of the people from real issues in NFC. They want to make us look as if we are doing things illegally instead of highlighting the misappropriation of public fund by a corporation," he said.

"This is also an insult to people's intelligence. Malaysians need to know the truth and as a responsible party, we are doing our part, "Rafizi said, adding the party will protect the source of information and will only wait for official notice by authorities.
Saying that this is not the first time PKR and him had encountered such threats, Rafizi said he would continue with more exposes.
