    Suhakam to probe alleged Felda mismanagement

    Kuek Ser Kuang Keng
    May 9, 11

    The Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) has pledged to investigate alleged mismanagement by the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda), which has caused settlers to incur debts.

    Suhakam will meet with the Felda management and visit the affected estates to begin its investigations into the settlers' disgruntlement and woes, Suhakam commissioner Muhammad Sha'ani Abdullah said today.


    "It seems that the performance of Felda's subsidiary is very disappointing," he told a press conference at the Suhakam headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, after receiving complaints from about a dozen settlers from Johor.

    The settlers were led by PAS-linked NGO Persatuan Anak Felda Kebangsaan (Anak) president Mazlan Aliman.

    Bringing dozens of photographs with them, the settlers claimed that Felda and its subsidiaries had failed to carry out, among other things, replanting of oil palm.
    This has led to delays in income and forced them into obtaining loans from the government agency.


    According to Rahman Kaimi (right), a settler from Nitar 2 Felda settlement in Mersing, the agency has taken more than a year to plant the oil palm seedlings. The process of replanting the 1,800-acre estate owned by 180 settlers has not been completed even after two years.

    Mazlan explained that, due to insufficient funds, the settlers had surrendered their land to the agency to carry out the replanting.

    During the process, the settlers are losing income. Felda is temporarily giving them a monthly living-cost loan ranging between RM1,000 and RM1,500, until the trees are ready to be harvested.

    The loan is however subject to annual interest of 6.5 percent.

    "The longer the replanting process takes, the higher the loan will be," said Mazlan before showing a settler's loan statement of RM91,000 due to the delay in replanting.

    "Some settlers lost their patience so they have reclaimed the land and carried out the replanting themselves. Then they demanded compensation but Felda refused to pay. It, in turn, questioned their action to reclaim the land," he said.

    Photographs taken by the settlers showed that their land has turned into scrub and that the seedlings are covered with weeds.

    No action to date

    The settlers have also faced other problems as a result of alleged Felda's incompetency and mismanagement.


    Among others, Rahman claimed that there is no nursery in the estate in the Nitar 2 scheme; the seedlings supplied by Felda came without soil and plastic bags; there zinc plates were not installed to protect seedlings although this was stated in the scope of work; and the seedlings stolen were reported as having been destroyed by monkeys.

    "The electric fencing surrounding the estate has no electricity. If you don't believe me, you can go and hold it. I am not lying to you, you won't die," said the angry settler.

    Mazlan claimed that Felda settlers nationwide face the same problems, but that the management has been turning a deaf ear to their woes despite complaints lodged with the authority and memorandum being sent to top leaders including the premier.


    Sha'ani, who was a Felda employee for 23 years, said he recognises the complaints and promised to probe the matter.

    "From the photographs, it seems like Felda's solution is delayed. You can clearly see the scrub has grown higher than a human," he said.

    The consumer activist pointed out that there is a lack of check and balance in Felda's management as the community leaders of settlements, who are supposed to voice out the settlers' interests and rights, are appointed by the management.

    "This is the basic weakness of the Felda management... Felda's vision is to empower settlers to take over the agency's operation. But now they are made to become settlers without vision so they will continue to rely on certain quarters," he commented.

    Felda pinjam wang KWSP RM6 bilion?

    Jamilah Kamarudin | May 24, 2011

    Mungkin berkaitan dengan Felda sejak diterajui Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak menunjukkan kawalan kewangan yang keterlaluan dan digunakan secara boros.



    KUALA LUMPUR: Persatuan Anak Peneroka Felda Kebangsaan (Anak) mendakwa Felda telah meminjam RM6 bilion daripada Kumpulan Wang Simpanan Pekerja (KWSP) bagi menampung masalah kewangan yang dialami organisasi itu.

    Pengerusi Anak, Mazlan Aliman mendakwa, pihaknya mendapat maklumat Felda telah berbuat demikian namun tidak dapat memastikan kesahihannya.

    Bagaimanapun, katanya persoalan ini mungkin berkaitan dengan Felda sejak diterajui Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak menunjukkan kawalan kewangan yang keterlaluan dan digunakan secara boros.

    Antaranya pelaburan Felda dalam Syarikat Twin Rivers Technology US Inc (TRT US) pada tahun 2007 yang berjumlah RM 270 juta, dan pelaburan Felda melalui Felda Global Ventures Sdn Bhd berjumlah RM500 juta di Cincinnati dan Boston.

    “Felda juga membayar faedah persaraan kepada bekas Pengerusi Tan Sri Dr Yusof Nor berjumlah RM 84,923 serta membayar elaun Pengerusi dan Ahli Lembaga Pengarah Felda berjuta ringgit setiap tahun,” katanya dalam sidang media di pejabat agung PAS di sini hari ini.

    Minta penjelasan Felda

    Justeru beliau meminta pengurusan Felda dan Timbalan Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Ahmad Maslan menjelaskan perkara ini.

    “Untuk apa wang RM 6 bilion ini dipinjamkan? Bagi tujuan apa? Kerajaan mesti membuat penjelasan segera kerana ia memberi implikasi sangat buruk kepada pengurusan Felda keseluruhannya,” katanya.

    Sebelum ini Mazlan mendakwa Felda mengalami kemerosotan rizab Felda namun dinafikan Ahmad Maslan.

    “Alasan yang digunakan Datuk Ahmad berhubung kemerosotan rizab Felda yang merosot dari RM 4.08 bilion pada 2004 kepada RM 1.35 bilion pada 2009 adalah ia digunakan untuk menampung kos peneroka.

    “Namun dakwaan Felda meminjam daripada KWSP ini amat mengejutkan dan kita mahu tahu apa yang berlaku,” kata Mazlan yang turut sangsi dengan keuntungan yang diperoleh Felda.

    Persoal METC

    Tegas AJK PAS Pusat itu, sekiranya dakwaan itu tidak benar satu penafian perlu dibuat pengurusan Felda dan Ahmad.

    Sementara itu, Mazlan juga meminta agar Felda menjelaskan tentang status anak-anak peneroka yang meneruskan pengajian di Pusat Latihan Kejuruteraan Penerbangan Malaysia (METC) di Subang, Selangor.

    “Anak menerima aduan mengenai status anak peneroka yang belajar di METC, walaupun peluang belajar di sana satu langkah yang dialu-alukan tetapi ia mesti telus dan Felda mesti jawab persoalan ini.

    “Yang pertama apakah status terkini program itu? Berapa kos sebenar untuk seorang pelajar? Apakah jenis lesen yang akan mereka dapat?

    Adakah benar dakwaan kos yang dibayar Felda terlalu mahal? Setakat manakah pelajar METC ini mendapat pentauliahan yang melayakkan mereka untuk pergi lebih jauh,” soalnya.

    Things never change. Human greed is always there. When you give a body too much power without check and balance, it becomes corrupt. Same with UMNO.

    Jengka settlers join Felda fraud suit

    Hafiz Yatim
    Jun 17, 11


    The Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) is facing further suits from participants in their programme after 711 settlers in Jengka, Pahang filed a RM344 million suit for fraud and breach of trust, at the Temerloh High Court.

    Felda has already seen suits from settlers in Kelantan, Johor and Negri Sembilan, with the latest - and largest - one from Jengka.

    The legal notice was filed through solicitors M/s Daim & Gamany this morning.

    The settlers named Felda and Felda Palm Industries Sdn Bhd, as defendants.

    In their statement of claim, the settlers alleged they were contractually bound by Felda to exclusively deliver their oil palm yield to Felda Palm Industries.

    They claimed they have always been paid at a lower oil extraction grade Oil Extraction Rate ("OER") for the last 15 years - averaging at 18.5 percent as stated in the Akuan Penerimaan BTS, the receipt that is given for each truck delivery of fruit bunches.

    The settlers alleged there is no clear evidence showing how Felda Palm Industries arrived at these different rates, given on a daily basis at the point of each delivery.

    The settlers suspected something was amiss when they realised that they could never match the higher recommended rate by the Malaysian Palm Oil Board.

    The settlers, through their representatives, sent random samples of their fruit yields to independent laboratories to assess the actual rate of the OER.

    The results from the lab tests showed a much higher average rate of 27 percent, which would mean an average difference of 8.5 percent over that adopted by the second Defendant.

    Statistics in question

    The lawyers claimed to have evidence showing that in 2008, the 711 settlers from the 16 Felda programmes in Jengka had delivered an average yield of 120 tonnes per settler. The settlers were paid by FELDA the average price of RM560 per tonne the same year.

    Using the figure of 8.5 percent as lost by the settlers, Felda has caused a loss of RM257.60 per tonne, which means each settler lost around RM30,912.00 just for 2008 alone.

    They also claimed Felda has deducted their fruit yields improperly by subtracting an average of 200 kg per month for disqualified fruit bunches without returning the bunches to the settlers.

    This led to a further loss of RM1,344 per settler per year, or a total of RM14,333,760 for all the settlers over the 15-year claim period.

    They alleged that in that time span Felda has caused a loss to these 711 settlers to the tune of more than RM344 million.

    Through this writ of summons and the process of discovery in court, the lawyers hoped to obtain the exact production figures for all the other schemes involved to compute a more accurate measure of the settlers' losses over the claim period.

    The settlers are also seeking exemplary damages as they contend that Felda, the statutory authority set up by law to look after the welfare of the settlers, has instead exploited its position of power and authority over the settlers and committed fraud and breach of trust.

    Felda stretches reach


    Written by Malaysia Chronicle

    KUALA LUMPUR - Federal Land Development Auhority (Felda), the world's largest oil palm plantation owner and manager, plans to bolster its rubber operations division by expanding to Cambodia and Myanmar.

    Government-owned Felda has a total landbank of over 853,313ha nationwide, of which 11 per cent is planted with rubber while the remaining 89 per cent is planted with oil palm and other smaller crops like tapioca, herbs and fruits.

    Felda chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad said the venture will be carried out by the agency's international commercial arm Felda Global Ventures Holdings Sdn Bhd.

    "Looking at the positive outlook and steady increase in the price of rubber, Felda Global is currently looking into land expansion in Cambodia and Myanmar for this commodity.

    "We plan to expand about 10,000ha in Cambodia and 30,000ha in Myanmar, through government channels.

    The discussions are still in the early stages and therefore it is too soon to disclose other details such as investment," Isa told Business Times recently via e-mail.

    Isa said Felda has already expanded its plantations of mainly oil palm to Kalimantan, Indonesia, via Trurich Resources Sdn Bhd, which is a 50:50 joint venture with TH Plantations Bhd, the plantation arm of Lembaga Tabung Haji.

    The venture owns 40,000ha of land in Kalimantan.

    "To date, we have already planted 5,000ha, including the plasma areas and our target is to plant 10,000ha this year," he said.

    On its plans this year, Isa said Felda Global is focusing this year on improving efficiency at its upstream operations, strengthening overseas operations, creating more value for its current business and creating new growth areas.

    This includes establishing strategic alliances, land expansion and expanding downstream activities.

    "At the same time, we are enhancing our talent management, to ensure that we have the capabilities and capacity to support and complement our expansion plans and take Felda Global to the next level," said Isa, adding that all these efforts point to additional value creation for the settler community.

    Further, more efficient operations and higher profits from the businesses will mean that Felda, being the ultimate shareholder of the businesses, will enjoy higher income and therefore have better financial capability to carry out activities for the benefit of the settlers.

    "In our efforts to make Felda a global company, we want to integrate all our businesses and are also looking at forming partnerships with suitable parties to ensure the sustainability of our overseas investments.

    "We are also looking at further exploring downstream activities including niche specialty products," said Isa.

    Felda has interests in four continents and over 10 countries including the US, Canada, China, Pakistan, Turkey, South Africa and Australia. These are mainly in the production of specialty fats and oils.

    On the oil palm sector outlook, Isa said the industry remains strong despite the unpredictable weather phenomenon and the extreme and prolonged rainy season is affecting harvest and palm oil stocks.

    Demand for palm oil has increased by five per cent in 2010 compared to the previous year which indicates a steady and uptrend demand for palm oil.

    "However, industry players need to be more diligent in managing plantations to increase milling efficiency to enhance crude palm oil production and minimise cost.

    On its oil palm sector, Felda has aborted plans to operate estates in Brazil and is now doing a feasibility study on expansion efforts to West Africa, in countries such as Cameroon and Liberia, Colombia, southern Thailand and various parts of Indonesia, such as Kalimantan, Sumatra and Sulawesi.

    Felda Global Ventures has 46 companies comprising wholly-owned subsidiaries, joint-venture companies and associates, with operations in 11 countries.

    Felda is the world's largest unlisted plantation agency with over 853,313ha of oil palm estates and other crops as at 2007.

    About half of Felda's land is owned by more than its 110,000 smallholders and their 1.5 million family members.

    Felda, set up in July 1956, manages 317 land schemes nationwide and owns 72 oil palm mills and seven refineries churning RM15 billion in revenue a year and produces one-fifth of the world's crude palm oil output.

    In 2001, FELDA had RM 4.5B in cash. They were making RM 2B per annum. Today, they should have RM 24.5B, instead of having RM 6B from the EPF. It looks like both the FELDA settlers and the workers' pension fund are being screwed.

    Police report on RM6 billion EPF loan to Felda

    Zefry Dahalan | June 27, 2011


    The police report by the National Felda Settler Children’s Association (Anak) is to find where and how the RM 6 billion loan was spent.

    SEREMBAN: The National Felda Settler Children’s Association (Anak) has lodged a police report questioning the RM6 billion EFP loan to Felda.

    Those named in the police report which was lodged on Sunday afternoon, were Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak; Deputy Minister in Prime Minister Department (Felda Affairs) Ahmad Maslan; Felda chairman Mohd Isa Abdul Samad and Felda director general Dzulkifli Abdul Wahab.

    The report was lodged at Seremban district police headquarters by Anak president Mazlan Aliman and about 25 supporters who are either Felda settlers or Employee Provident Fund (EPF) contributors.

    “Recently Mohd Isa the Felda chairman admitted that Felda borrowed RM6 billions from EPF and that it shows how much trust EPF has on Felda by willing to give RM6 billion as loan,” said Mazlan.

    In his police report Mazlan wants to know where and how the RM6 billion was spent. He also wants to know who directed Felda to borrow RM6 billion from EPF.

    “ We want to know why the borrowing was not tabled in Parliament and would the loan have any implications on Felda settlers.

    Mazlan urged Najib and EPF to explain this to the people, especially to Felda settlers and EPF contributors.

    Don’t fall for Opposition’s gimmicks, Felda settlers told

    KOTA TINGGI - Felda settlers should not fall for the political gimmicks of the Opposition but instead continue to support the ruling government that has a long-term plan for them, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

    He said the Opposition had no interest in developing Felda settlements but only had its own interest in mind.

    “In the past, we have helped upgrade the physical aspects relating to Felda settlers including providing them with funds for houses, land and education.

    “In the next 50 years, we will continue to improve and focus on advancing the mindset of Felda settlers to ensure that they are on par with other members of society,” he said at a national-level Rahmat Ramadan celebration at Masjid Al Faizin at Felda Air Tawar 2 here yesterday.

    He added that the main reason why the Malacca Sultanate fell to the Portuguese was because the people were not loyal to the ruling government and did not take the effort to advance themselves.

    Najib said that being complacent was not a solution and the settlers needed to always work on improving themselves.

    Najib said the settlers should not only strive to achieve success in the country but aim to make a name in the international arena.

    He also announced that the Government had allocated RM42mil in duit raya for Felda settlers nationwide and an additional RM15mil for mosques and religious schools in the country.

    In his earlier speech in Felda Tunggal, Penggerang, Najib said Felda would need to be defended as it was the powerhouse for Barisan Nasional, Umno and ultimately the government administration of Putrajaya.

    He said Felda represented about 114,000 families nationwide and it was important to maintain political stability in the country and to showcase Malaysia’s leadership to other countries.

    “Felda’s success is a special and unique thing that we all should be proud of,” he said.

    Musang speaking.

    10 years of progress!

    2001: RM 4.5 Billion cash.
    Supposed to be making RM 2 Billion annually.
    So in 2011, should have RM 25 Billion cash.

    Instead, FELDA had to borrow RM 6.5 Billion from EPF.

    The rakyat is screwed from front and back.

    Opposition failed to stop Felda's progress - Isa

    KUALA LUMPUR - Attempts by the opposition to politicise the role of Felda at the next general election could not prevent it from continue to progress for the betterment of society and the nation.

    Felda chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad said the opposition had been using the same tactic over the years especially when the general election was getting near.

    "They want to erode Felda settlers confidence in the government. That is their only aim as they know that Felda is the stronghold of Barisan Nasional all these years," he told reporters after breaking fast with Felda staff here Thursday night.

    Replying to Felda issues raised by the opposition, Mohd Isa said: "We manage and think of developing Felda but they (the opposition) think about politics.

    "We think of how to grow Felda so that the Felda community may succeed and receive benefits, while they think of sowing hatred. They are two different things," he said.

    Felda faces fresh suit from settlers in Pahang


    Salhan K Ahmad

    10 friends can read this story for free



    Some 550 Felda settlers in Bera, Pahang, today filed a lawsuit against Felda - the Federal Land Development Authority - for cheating them on payments for their oil palm produce.

    Lawyer Nasar Khan, when contacted, said the group was not satisfied with the distribution and palm oil extraction rate set by three Felda factories since 1995.

    "We have also filed a lawsuit over fruit bunches that were rejected but still processed by Felda, without making any payment.

    "Maybe the fruit quality was not as good, but why process it then? That means Felda is taking the fruits free of charge from the settlers," Nasar said.

    He said the settlers were paid according to global prices but this was based on fruit grades that were determined by Felda - normally at an oil extraction rate of 18 to 19 percent.

    'Felda not transparent'


    "But it (Felda) is not transparent. When we send (the fruits) to the lab, it says the oil extraction rate is more than 25 percent. This is Felda's own lab, not an external lab," he said.

    Nasar said the settlers were also demanding payment for produce from the palm kernel, but were yet to estimate the amount they would seek from Felda.

    "For 2008 alone, we estimate the total claim to be as much as RM19 million," he said, adding that the amount may vary year-to-year over the last 16 years.

    The settlers also want Felda to hand over documents relating to its payment calculation methods, global pricing and palm oil quantity since 2005.

    The latest suit is part of a string of other suits against Felda following a landmark case last year, in which the court ordered Felda to pay RM11 million for similar fraud charges.

    Isa ineligible to head Felda co-op?






    The recent appointment of Isa Samad as head of the Felda Settlers’ Cooperative (KPF by its Malay acronym) is ‘illegal’ as he is not even eligible for membership in the society, according to PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution.


    Saifuddin (left), who claimed to be citing sources within the national plantations giant, said the KPF board of directors had approved Isa’s inclusion in the board without taking into account the rules and regulations governing cooperatives.


    He said the KPF management, which is unhappy with the allegedly arbitrary appointment, has sought the advice of the Malaysian Cooperatives Commission (SKM) on the matter.


    “It (SKM) stated that any appointment to the board of any cooperative is subject to provisions under the Cooperatives Act 1993 and By-Laws,” Saifuddin toldMalaysiakini.


    “Since the Act and By-Laws state that only (cooperative) members who have been in (the society) for two years would qualify as board members, his appointment is also subject to this provision.”


    It is understood that an application to place Isa (right) - also Felda chairperson - on the KPF board and to make him the cooperative’s chairperson was approved at a special board meeting on June 22.
    This allegedly created confusion as, despite the board’s decision, Felda general manager and the previous KPF chair Zukifli Wahab had chaired a board meeting on Sept 8 to discuss his replacement by Isa.


    This was despite the absence of clear indication as to whether Isa’s appointment had indeed taken effect.


    Bigger conspiracy?


    Pro-Felda settlers’ NGO Anak believes that Isa’s appointment as KPF chairperson was done with bigger plans in mind, which is to support the government’s plan to list Felda Global Ventures Holdings Berhad (FGVH) on Bursa Malaysia next year.


    Anak chairperson Mazlan Aliman(left) said KPF holds a 51 percent stake worth some RM350 million in Felda Holdings Sdn Bhd, which is slated to be used to prop up FGVH’s attempt to list on the stock exchange.


    Mazlan claimed further that Isa had allegedly put up some 367,000 ha of estate land as a guarantee to raise funds for FGHV’s impending foray into Bursa Malaysia, estimating that it could raise between RM5 billion to RM6 billion in capital.


    The land is scattered across the country, with the largest tract in the Felda Sabahat estate in Lahad Datu, Sabah, accounting for some 100,000ha, Mazlan said.


    “Why are they taking KPF assets? Why are they taking all this land? Because FGVH has no money. Their overseas investments have failed. They have gone to Canada, they have gone to China, and they have failed.


    “I don’t know how the prime minister can have such faith in an even bigger investment plan that will go to 13 countries... this is how the settlers are being betrayed by Isa, who had been mandated by the prime minister and (deputy Minister in charge of Felda) Ahmad Maslan (to run Felda).”
    Mazlan stressed that Anak is opposed to plans to list FGVH on Bursa Malaysia, and will soon come up with a memorandum in protest of the move.

    ‘Felda management threatening us’


    Zefry Dahalan
    | October 13, 2011

    Twenty of 113 settlers from Felda Palong 9 lodged police report alleging that they are being coerced to withdraw suit filed in July this year.
    JEMPOL: Twenty Felda settlers from Felda Palong 9 lodged a police report against the Felda management yesterday alleging that are being coerced into withdrawing a suit they filed in July this year.

    Named in the report were Felda Palong 9 manager Salleh Muhidin, village head and Palong 9 Umno branch chief, Osman Parman and the committees members of the Settlers Development and Security Committe (JKKR).

    Accompanied by PKR deputy secretary general T Kumar and Felda Palong 9 PKR branch chairman Mohd Salam Yusof, the settlers claimed Salleh and Osman have been intimidating the settlers into withdraw a suit they filed earlier this year.

    One hundred and thirteen Felda Palong 9 settlers filed a suit against the management at the Seremban High Court on July 7 to seek restitution for losses suffered from an allegedly faulty choice of a contractor to clear their land.

    One of the complainants Jani Maaroff, 53, in his report said that on Sept 16, he went to meet Salleh to get his approval for electricity connection for his newly-constructed shop but was threatened.

    “I requested him to sign an application form that was needed to be submitted to Tenaga Nasional Berhad for electricity connection. Salleh threatened me and directed me to withdraw the suit if wanted his help,” said Jani.

    Another complainant Misran Wagiran, 51 said that his wife went to meet Salleh in his office to get an “endorsement letter” for an application to get a driving license for one of his children.

    “Salleh threatened my wife and asked her to withdraw the suit if she wanted to get the endorsement letter from him,” said Misran.

    Jalil Othman, 57, in his report said that Salleh Osman and JKKR committee’s members launched a seditious campaign to ask the defendants to withdraw the suit.

    “They said the Felda management will withdraw the Living Allowances (Elaun Sara Hidup) and the scholarships for their children to further their studies at higher education institutions.

    “They also attempted to rattle us by saying our agricultural land (rubber and oil palm) will be abandoned and any dealings with the Felda management will not be entertained.”

    Tricked into signing

    One settler, Bain Haron, 61, shaken up by the threats, said in his report, he signed a letter as directed by Salleh to withdraw the suit.

    Abdul Razak Atan, 51 in his report said he was also tricked into signing a similar form. “I thought it was related to my allowances for my weed killer spraying works.

    “I’m a long sighted and on that day I had forgotten to bring my spectacles and just signed. Later I realised it’s a form to withdraw my suit against them”.

    Kumar, who is also the lawyer representing them in the suit, said that it’s a constitutional right of the Felda settlers to file their case in court to get justice.

    “The Felda manager and other defendants can defend themselves in court when the case is heard. It’s not right for them to threaten the settlers.

    “Felda should protect the settlers’ right, not to threaten them,” said Kumar who is also the Jempol PKR vice chief.
