Felda has been hit with allegations of imposing exorbitant rates, fraud, discrimination, unfairness, misuse and abuse of funds in recent years.

Two years ago, the Kota Bharu High Court ordered Felda to pay RM11 million in damages after settlers alleged that they were cheated of payment for palm fruit from 1996 to 2002.

Baharuddin Arif Siri, 59, a Felda settler since 1979, described Felda's indifference towards the plight of the settlers as irresponsible and self-serving.NONE

Saad Jamaluddin, 63, another first generation Felda settler, also lamented the fact that the agency has been witholding the deposits that they have invested for 15 years.

"Felda gave us lots of nonsensical excuses to restrict our withdrawal," he said.

Also present today were PKR leaders Sallehuddin Ayub, Tian Chua (right)and PAS central committee member Mazlan Aliman, who is also the Persatuan Anak Felda (Anak) president.
