Police are proposing to charge the chairperson of the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) Dr Mohamed Salleh Ismail, the husband of the Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil with criminal breach of trust.
Bukit Aman Commercial CID director Syed Ismail Syed Azizan said the proposal was in the investigation paper being prepared by police after it had been returned from the Attorney-General's (A-G) Office on Tuesday to investigate several other matters.
"The investigation would be sent back to the AG shortly," he said when contacted by Bernama tonight.
The issue on NFC headed by Mohamad Salleh as the executive chairperson began to receive public attention after the Auditor-General's 2010 Report in October said NFC failed to meet the objective of its establishment.
It became a hot issue when the opposition alleged misappropriation of the government's RM250 million allocation to NFC.
NFC is a beef valley project in Gemas, Negri Sembilan to increase the production of local beef and reduce national dependence on imported beef.
