KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 1 — Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz denied today that allegations of his son’s link to Sabah timber trader Michael Chia would cost Barisan Nasional (BN) politically like the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal.
“It doesn’t bother me at all. That (NFC case) is husband and wife...what he does, he doesn’t tell me.
“It is different from husband and wife,” the outspoken minister told reporters when approached in Parliament.
Nazri was defending himself against allegations by PKR’s Rafizi Ramli, who had accused him of conflict of interest in his alleged defence of Chia, the businessman who was accused of attempting to smuggle RM40 million to Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman.
Rafizi had asked if Nazri’s alleged “relentless” defence of Chia was because his son, Nedim, had been using the businessman’s half a million ringgit Hummer.
