Swine-(dling) Scruple

FGV CEO-designate Emir Mavani

Bad enough that it was raised about the designated CEO to FELDA Global Ventures Holdings Bhd. Emir Mavani claimed to have obtained the doubtful Ph.D. in ‘Government Reforms’ from Warnborough University in the United Kingdom, in here barely three weeks ago. Now, it seems that there is what should be a scandalous deal when its out in the open.

It was said that even before taking over officially as the CEO of FGVH, Mavani made the decision to sell RBD Palm Olein to some ‘non preferred’ customers. RBD Palm Olein is the liquid fraction obtained by the fractionation of palm oil after crystallization at controlled temperatures. It is especially suitable for frying and cooking.

What is interesting about the buyer is Yunnan Huijia Import & Export Co. Ltd. of China. The company’s main stay of business operations in rearing and trading swine and pork meats and related products.

The deal was for the sale of 50,000 metric tons of RBD Palm Olein.

FELDA Marketing (FELMA) is the outfit to market CPO and processed oil. FELMA advised against the sale, considering the background of the buyer. More over, the sale of products to companies in China is usually at a lower price. Thus, any export to China would not be FELMA’s preferred choice.

It was said Mavani went ahead with the sale despite FELMA’s opposition and instructed that a USD 20.00 per ton discount be given to Yunnan Huijia. The current market price of RBD Palm Olein is USD 790-800.00 per ton (Malaysian domestic market).

It is believed on top of that discount, the commission USD 20.00 for every ton that was sold to Yunnan Huijia was personally pocketed by someone within FGV. That is a cool USD million for the RBD Palm Olein deal.

Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission officers should investigate the sale of RBD Palm Olein to Yunnan Huijia and probably Mavani’s own accounts. FGV cannot be tarred if the CEO and senior management are involved in separate deals with their clients and suppliers. What is more damaging if there were personal gains made, through these deals.

On another perspective Shareholders of FGV, especially those from the 112,635 FELDA settlers would likely want to know why are they selling products to swine producers at a discounted price. More over, subsidising export. It would not be good for them to feel that their investment is technically subsidising porcine based business in China.

Its is a serious matter of integrity. Especially FGV is the corporation that is entrusted to carry out business where the proceeds would be channeled to fund for the development programs for the 112,635 families of FELDA settlers and neighbouring communities.

Mavani is supposed to take over from Tan Sri Sabri Ahmad in 25 days time. Mavani was PEMANDU’s nominated personality into the BOD of FGV. He was the director in charge of oil and gas in PEMANDU.

It is believed that since it was raised in public domain, Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak recently instructed the BOD of FGV to investigate the integrity of Mavani’s Ph.D. In the upcoming board meeting on Monday 24 June, Mavani is expected to produce his Ph.D, original trasncript and thesis for scrutiny and verification.

Let’s hope that there is no unscrupulous practice of deception detected. There is too much at stake here.

  1. Tuan punya Blog, izin saya ,sekali lagi,

    It is very strange for a Pm just elected and rejected by cina tsunami,is creating unneccesary waves, is rocking the UMNO boat to 10 meter waves….
    His indulgence in appointments galore left rite and centre attracting flies to faeces.He is a mirror image klone road map of KJ wunderkinde 30 day wonder or is it the way round.
    Why should this maverick be asked to produce his academic credential after the cat is out of the bag ?
    Should they be produced at the HR interview prelims ?
    Methinks, another blakula repeat fotocopy case.
    With case files, someone here in Malaysia, should produce a wikipaedia of Najib Ah Goooo.
    UMNO PAU must contest Pres and Deputy Pres and Ketua Pemuda(sic).
    arjuna waspada
    changkat lobak

  2. Percayakah anda bahawa tulisan yg ditulis serta komen-komen yg ada hanyalah utk dibaca sahaja, saya percaya tiada tindakan yg akan diambil. Kerajaan hanya percaya pada org-org mereka sahaja dan bukannya rakyat jelata seperti kita. Dah bosan dgn telatah kerajaan yg ada.

    • Jangan bosan, bang, tulis saja, hantam depa yang buat tak betui.

      Baca tak baca dek penasihat Najib, lain kira. Kita nakkan juga rakyat biasa, ahli ahli UMNO biasa baca. Dari ramai yang membaca apa kita kata, ada beberapa yang mungkin jadi Perwakilan UMNO, tentu ada baiknya.

      Teruskan hentam nana yang tak betui depa buat. Mana yang menjahanamkan hak dan kepentingan Melayu. Sila kan.

  3. Excellent!

    He’s not even officially in yet, but his tentacles of selfserving indulgence & greed are already in full working order.

    This Kling Karam has now subjected FGV to subsidise pig rearing business in China. DAP should oppose this as FGV should be subsidising pig farmers in Malaysia first!

    1Malaysia, maa! Rakyat didahulukan, pencapaian diutamakan……

    Imagine how would all these 112,635 Felda settlers feel if they find out that their investments in FGV is acttually subsidizing USD20.00 per MT of palm oil for pig farming in China……

    What next?

    Send Felda youths & agriculture interns to learn pig farming in China?

  4. Anything that has the Nor Yakcop, Azman Mokhtar, Omar Ong and their cronies have self serving and fraud written all over.

    Clean up government from all this nincompoops or it will be the end for BN.

    Does the PM knows how to make the right decision?

    • Najib Needs
      Dr M to Keep His Job and give him the Backbone he Needs
      Omar Ong for his Eyes and Ears
      Khairy and Sundry Advisers for His Brainworks
      Rosmah for his ????

      What Else does he Himself has to Offer? Daim uses theWord “Clown”

  5. Felda jual minyak masak (RBD Palm Olein) to overseas buyers boleh bagi discount. Untuk small trader di Malaysia jual harga tokey babi pun boleh bangkrap. Taik kucing.

  6. Eh apa nie. Soalan aku berkenaan dengan PHD dia belum di jawab. Ini lagi!! Keling haram. MACC bangun lah, sebelum Peneroka bangun dan langsung mengundi Pembangkang!

  7. Tuan Big Guy,

    Kawan tak paham langsung; kenapalah Najib setuju lantik Keling ni kedalam FGV?

    Takda anak Melayu lagi ke yg boleh urus syarikat MNC perladangan cam FGV ni?

    ‘Dawn Raid’ berlaku 32 thn lampau. Dlm pasaran sekarang berlonggok professional Melayu yg amat cekap & berjaya mengurus Sykt MNC perladangan.

    Apa hal ambik Keling lak lagi?

    Kalau FGV ranap, padanlah muka semua! Sebab baik baik ada pagar yg baik, pergi letak pagar yg makan padi jaga…..

    Kan banggang tu!

    • FELDA needs Keling as CEO since most of its refineries (except Delima Oil) are 50% own by a Keling-company based in Dubai, IFFCO (www.iffco.com). Initially IFFCO was supposed to only be a marketing agent for FELDA for overseas market, but somehow, no thanks to the most powerful woman in Malaysia, IFCCO ended up owning 50% of FELDA’s refinery. FELDA sold off it’s refinery stake to IFFCO when Bakke was the CEO. Now, not only IFFCO controls the international distribution market of FELDA, they only promote their own brand such as HAYAT, NOOR, etc (minus SAJI of course). Don’t be surprised in the overseas market, nobody ever heard of SAJI, or even FELDA, it’s IFFCO, IFFCO, IFFCO all the way!!! FELDA can brag that they are the biggest plantation company in the world, but IFFCO is the one taking all the limelight. Orang melayu yang bersusah payah tanam pokok kelapa sawit, yang kaya raya jual minyak ialah KELING IFFCO. What a pity! So, it makes sense to have a KELING as a CEO of FELDA.

      • Kalau dah jual pegangan dalam IFFCO sekali pun, Kawan tak nampak kenapa nak kena angkat Keling Kon-sultan ni sebagai lembaga pengarah FGV.

        Sekarang ni diangkat sebagai CEO pulak.

        Perniagaan FGV terletak pada huluan, dimana 112,635 peneroka Felda & keluarga ada kepentingan walaupun tidak langsung.

        Lepas ni, apa pulak?

        Angkat Keling jadi CEO PNB ke? Dan CEO Tabung Haji lak ke?

        Semua institusi yg jaga kepentingan Melayu ni biorlah Cina & Keling kuasai pulak. Musim ‘Transformasi’ ni, professional Melayu dah takda lagi, agaknya….

        Pas tu bila professional Melayu cari kehidupan kat luo, sebuk lak nak panggil balik. Tubuhkan Talent Corp segala bagai. Belanja berpuluh juta buat road show merata dunia, hasilnya tak berapa sen nilai!

        Ni akal Nor Mohamad Yakob la ni!

        Memang otak Keling!

      • Not sure if, in the last analysis, the keling Nor Akcop (fair to call him that?) was responsible for a lot of the mess. Wasn’t there the unseen female hand that got her student day’s acquaintance Bakke into FELDA, Sime Darby and such?

        If so, was she exercising power and influence on her own? Was it not with the consent, even the connivance, of the top shot? Like Omar Ong would not have been hammered into Petronas BOD without the involvement of the top shot. After all, even NEP was placed on the back burner. For which the UMNO delegates to PAU in November should generate some heat.

      • The question is: who takes the commission? The RM20 per ton reduced price the Keling was said to have instructed be reduced, the Papua New Guinea land unwanted by others, the sarawak land others won’t touch etc.

        It’s too daring if the CEO takes it himself, innit? Possible that the unseen hand has huge coffers to be filled? And foreign blokes are mere tools, more likely to keep secrets for fear not only of losing his job but losing the Heaven that he may have enjoyed here in Malaysia?

    • Tak faham kenapa Najib lantik???…tak kan tuan tak tahu siNajib tu buta, pekak dan tuli. Kita Melayu ni jadi balachi dia untuk berkuasa. Lepas tu dia buat keputusan yang bengong, bodoh dan merugikan Melayu.

      Najib tiada semangat Melayu walau secebis pun….kita semua tertipu oleh Najib the bull shiter and Chinese lover…

      • Spot on. Unfortunately Najib is still trap in a nightmare from which he cannot wake up or from which he doesnt want to wake up from. The warp perception he and his advisers have of the Malays are the product of their narcissistic ego amplified by the political power they hold. They think they are the better Malays ordained by destiny to create new Malays according to their own definition. Stripped of political power, these type of Malays will be nothing but just like any other guy on the street.

  8. Hello everybody – the state is sorrier and worser then everything said above. We plantation industry people got to know, since this Gujerati guy came to Felda, he has been pushing Felda to do land deals that we plantation people would never touch in million years.

    Just imagine. Land in Sarawak with title issues (NCR), environmntal issues, steep terrain etc., we people would never touch. Turns out that Emir is making Felda buy all this lands. Case in point is Papua New Guinea. The land deal has been shopped around all over town already. Nobody nak this land. Tiba-tiba, the vendor has been boasting that through his relationship with TS Lim (Board member) and Gujerati Emir Mavani, Felda’s investment comittee already approved for them to buy!! Speachless!! I heard that Felda is buying at USD5,500 per hectare, when no one else would pay USD1,000 per hectare max, which is the market price!!! The land would face serious environmental lobby issues anyway, so why do it ???

    Total value for the deal would be RM400 millions!!

    Please people, I worry for peneroka, minority shareholders, etc. Can something be done to stop this complete and utter songlap-ing being done by Emir and his best friend Lim?

    • Talk to as many UMNO members as you can find. Tell them those. If what you say reaches the delegates to the UMNO General Assembly in November, there’s a chance that they will bring it up and ask for Najib be replaced at the party elections at that time.

      • Dr M has Spoken.

        Najib Not to be Replaced.

      • You’d like that, would you, Mr Black? You DAP eh, benefiting from UMNO/BN weaknesses?

        Btw, you DAP blokes have shown RoS that you can count up to 1800 votes?

      • Tun Dr Mahathir never said Najib shouldnt be replaced.

        He said there should be no contest for top leadership posts, because UMNO would be fragmanted. He also said the Malays hv been too divided already & that weakens them even tho they are majority.

        Tun Dr Mahathir did not say the Malays & UMNO grassroots en bloc shouldnt campaign to make Najib resign from the post UMNO presidency & premiership.

        Just like how they push Slumber Slowcoach out in the 2008-9 year long campaign.

    • Report to SPRM.

  9. Please Commentators! Stop using the K Word and use the Acronym DKK instead.

    Incidentally Dr M is also DKK, so please have some Respect OK?

    • Sorry mate.

      For someone who was born as ‘Pradeeb Kumar’, one is definitely a Keling!

      Not darah keturunan Keling. Pure 100% Keling blood being pumped thru his arteries every minute of his life.

      Nice try, next time….

      • Support what you say.

        That Blacky bloke has been saying funny things elsewhere, too.

  10. Saya nak komen mengenai yang di atas.

    1) PM dah kenal Emir ni dah lama dah. Sejak Emir ni di Pemandu, sebelum dia masuk dunia Felda. PM diketahui jumpa Emir sorang-sorang, tanpa ada sesiapa dari pejabat PM ataupun Idris Jala tahu apa yang dibincangkan. PM juga rapat dengan TS Lim yang disebut di atas. TS Lim ni kononya bantu PM “uruskan” “komuniti underworld Cina”

    2) Sesuatu pelantikan mustahak di Felda tak akan jadi kecuali dengan sokongan PM sendiri. Kita tahu, dulu Felda nak jadikan Dato Syed Zainal, seorang yang warak, sebagai CEO. Bahkan, Syed Zainal telah dilihat meninggalkan bangunan Felda setelah bertemu dengan Pengerusi dan CEO sekarang (Sabri). Masuk surat khabar pun. Tetapi, bila sampai ke tahap PM, PM tak setuju. PM nak jugak Emir jadi CEO menggantikan Sabri. Kenapa?? Dan kenapa PM bawak masuk TS Lim dalam dunia Felda???

    3) Setelah banyak problem yang mereka berdua lakukan, kenapa PM tak ambik tindakan? Sekurang-kurangnya, suspen-kan pelantikan mereka sementara tuduhan-tuduhan ini disiasat. Ni tidak. Bahkan PM meluaskan pengaruh TS Lim di Felda. Dia bukan sahaja ahli lembaga pengarah subsidiari-subsidiari Felda. Bahkan, dia sekarang diletakkan di Jawatankuasa Kelulusan Pelaburan!!! Pergi baca laporan tahunan FGV yang baru keluar ini!!! Tak tipu!!!

    Dengar kata terbaru, Lim ni juga akan dimasukkan dalam pihak pengurusan!!! Kenapa??? Sebab tulah perkara yang di komen atas tu boleh terjadi – dioarang ni sekarang boleh luluskan apa sahaja deal yang mereka nak!!!

    Begitu juga kisah Emir ni. Kalau dah banyak sangat tuduhan, kenapa PM tak sambung aje CEO sekarang, Sabri?? Kenapa PM nak jugak si Gujerati ni ambik alih???

    Jadi, saudara-saudari semua guna kan saje pemikiran. Duit yang beratus-ratus juta di atas untuk siapa sebenarnya???

    • Amat menarik pandangan ini.

      Kalau betul, lagi menjadi sebab PAU di bulan November mesti bertindak berkenaan kedudukan Najib sebagai Presiden UMNO.

    • What Najib wants Najib gets…..ingat tak kisah perlantikan Omar Ong keLembaga Pengarah Petronas?

      Hutang belajar dengan Petronas tak bayar dan banyak perkara berbangkit dan memang tak layak pun namun Najib “bull doze” Omar Ong’s appointment tanpa memikirkan kesan dikemudian hari. Aku rasa perkara yang hampir sama berlaku dan sepatutnya Najib disiasat oleh SPRM.

      Dulu masa ambil alih dari Dollah, rasanya Najib boleh diharap namun sebaliknya berlaku…..Samada Najib diganti atau BN akan hilang undi dari orang Melayu….dan Najib pulak??? lari ke Khazakstan kot…..

      I really wish that Earth would open up and swallow both Najib and Anwar for both are destroying the Malay race and by extension Islam, in Malaysia.

      • I also wish the same. Last time Nik Aziz, too. Now he no longer MB Kelantan. But still divisive. Said no PAS-UMNO/ Malay unity as long as he lives. Yes, he should also be swallowed. By anything.

      • Saya fikir Najib tak akan berganjak atau tukar pendiriannya. Dia sudah jadi macam cicak dah putus ekor. Kesana kemari tak tentu haluan.

        Atau, kalau tentu haluan pun, arah kesana. Selepas tsunami Cina pun, dia masih lagi beri RM37 juta kapada sekolah Cina dalam Budget 2014. Ada banyak lain lain contoh dia arah kesana.

        Dia fikir dia liberal, kononnya. Saya setuju tiada Melayu yang liberal kalau tak sedarkan Melayu dan Bumiputera Sabah dan Sarawak perlukan DEB. Benar, dia senyapkan DEB dalam Model Ekonomi Barunya. Benar, adik dia Nazir, CEO CIMB, ketawakan DEB. MasyaAllah. Merana roh Tun A Razak kalau tahu anak anaknya telah derhaka kapada bangsa Melayu yang Tun Razak bertungkus lumus nak naikkan. Mereka dua beradik liberal olok olok, sebenarnya. Apa Inggeris kata “pseudo-liberal”.

        Tak pernah diam di kampong (mereka membesar sekolah di England), tak selalu melawat dan masa melawat, tak lama di kampong, mana mereka tahu keadaan kaum Melayu sebenarnya. Mereka sudah jadi irrelevant kapada perjuangan Melayu. Walau pun UMNO ada lah perjuangan Melayu. Gah sahaja berucap fasal Melayu, tapi tak rasa apa di hati sanubari.

      • Lantikan lantikan dalam Kerajaan, badan bedan Kerajaan dan NGO yang kita lihat mengarut tu semuanya Najib yang tanggung jawab. Sama ada dia buat sendiri atau orang lain tonjolkan, atau perdaya/ manipulatekan, Najib tanggung jawab.

        Benar, mungkin ada 1-2 yang “Tingkat Empat” atau “Mem Besar” suruh Setiausaha Kerajaan atau sesiapa lain berkenaan lakukan lantikan itu tanpa beri tahu Najib sebelom buat gitu. Di lapurkan bahawa Mohamed Bakke (CEO FELDA/ Sime Darby sekarang?) ada lah kawan baik Mem Besar masa berlajar dahulu. Tapi Najib diamkan, Najib tanggung jawab.

        Ramai rakyat tahu bahawa lantikan tu ada tujuan senyap. Kita juga tahu bahawa komisen atau sebagainya yang di katakan untuk tabung UMNO, sekurang kurangnya separuh masuk ke poket sendiri. Ini berlaku sejak zaman Harun Idirs MB Selangor sejak tahun 70an lagi. Tindakan politik wang Najib lakukan 1-2 tahun lalu hanya propaganda sahaja. Khairy Jamaludin yang nyata di dapati bersalah politik wang Najib dah lantik sebagai Menteri. Takkah lantang Najib nak tunjukkan kuasa, tak hiraukan apa rakyat kata? Termasuk kita yang selalu mebidas Khairy di blog ini juga?

        FELDA, Sime Darby, Petronas dsbnya ada lah lombong wang. Bertan duit ada di sana. Jika kenalan rapat di antik sebabagi CEO atau Pengarah yang boleh mempengaruhi CEO, senang lah nak apa apa. Ini berlaku sejak zaman Tun Dol lagi. Ingat, Najib pun sebahagian dari pemerintahan Tun Dol dulu. Sistem “Tingkat 4” sudah ada sejak Najib Timbalan PM lagi. Mungkin “convenient” kapadanya membiarkan sistem itu berterusan. Jadi, mana boleh harap Najib akan berganjak atau bertukar pendirian atau haluan?

        Apa nak di buat? Di Perhimpunan Agong UMNO di bulan November lah. Tak boleh harap Ahli Ahli Majlis tertinggi – mereka dah sedap dapat jawatan dan/atau ganjaran. Mesti tak mahu Najib di nyahkan. Kita kena harap dan gesa Ahli Perwakilan. Siapa mereka? Akan di tentukan hanya bila dekat dengan masa PAU. Jadi, kita bisingkan sekarang tak habis habis sampai November ini. Tulis di sini dan di mana saja. Cakap kapada siapa saja ahli UMNO, ahli Jawatan kuasa Cawangan, kalau boleh.

  11. They will regard the sale as loss leader. Only the economic loss is on FGV, not to Mavani et al. The transactions will undoubtedly be treated as sale of by products i.e cost of productions have been absorbed as cost of sales for processing CPO and other main products. Hence, there will be no accounting losses and no doctoring of books needed.

    There will always be rooms for super generous fools in a competitive market.

    Mavani et al will still smell like roses out of this fiasco.

  12. Its about time Malaysians know who are the people/proxies all the pirates/snakes around PM in the likes of Omar Ong, NMY, JJ, Nazir etc.

    PM has been hoodwinked far too long!

    • Hoodwinked or Leader of the Mob?

      • Just Accept It!

        Its Not Him.

        You’ve ALL BEEN HOODWINKED. Heh Heh.

  13. DEAR BOARD OF FGV. WHEN YOU SEE MAVANI’S PHD ON MONDAY PLEASE REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT AN EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATION BODY, ALL YOU IDIOTS HAVE TO DETERMINE IS WHETHER MR MAVANI’S PHD IS AWARDED BY A RECOGNISED EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION! DONT PRETEND TO EVEN TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT RUBBISH HE TRIED TO PASS OFF TO AWARD HIMSELF A DOCTORATE. PLEASE THINK OF THE POOR SHAREHOLDERS LIKE ME WHO PUT MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS IDIOT’S SALARY….. AND ACTUALLY YOURS TOO!
