KUALA LUMPUR: A day after PKR strategy director Mohd Rafizi Ramli was charged in court with disclosing financial accounts of the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) and its chairperson Mohd Salleh Ismail, its official website was hacked.

The defaced website’s contents were replaced with anti-Umno messages supporting Rafizi.

“Rafizi Ramli is the people’s hero! The person who you should arrest is (former women, family and community development minister) Shahrizat (Abdul Jalil) and her children!

“Warning from us! Don’t fool the people! All Malaysians will fight against Umno BN until the end!” read one of the messages in Malay.

Another message demanded that NFC return the RM250 million government soft loan to the people.

“We wont forget & we wont forgive. You need to apologise to Malaysians and return the RM250 million that you have siphoned! That is our money!”

There were also images related to the Asalkan Bukan Umno (Anything But Umno) movement and cartoons that ridiculed NFC, Umno and the BN.

There was another line saying that the website was hacked by ‘SGP Cyber Army’.

Speculation adds to running saga

Yesterday, Rafizi, who exposed the NFC scandal, was charged in the Shah Alam Sessions Court under Section 97 of the Banking and Financial Institutions Act (Bafia), of having disclosed to two reporters the financial accounts held by Public Bank.

The accounts were identified as the customer profiles of NFC, Meatworks and Livestocks Sdn Bhd, Agroscience Sdn Bhd and of Mohd Salleh.

Shahrizat is married to Mohd Salleh who runs NFC with their three children.

Rafizi had speculated that the charge was framed under Bafia because the authorities “were unable to apply the Official Secrets Act”.

Bank Negara started investigations after Mohd Salleh’s police report against Rafizi for 21 alleged breaches of private and confidential banking details that are protected under Part XIII of Bafia on secrecy and information.

Mohamad Salleh himself is facing two counts of criminal breach of trust (CBT) and two alleged offences under the Companies Act 1965 involving a total of RM49.7 million, related to the purchase of two luxury condominium units.

NFC had received the RM250 million soft loan for the National Feedlot Centre project to produce beef, but the auditor-general found that the set targets were not being met. – MKini
