PETALING JAYA - Graft busters are investigating the sale of land in Cameron Highlands, in which several farmers were allegedly cheated of millions of ringgit.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Com­­­­­­mission (MACC) investigations director Datuk Mohd Jamidan Abdullah confirmed that the commission had begun its investigations into the case.

"The focus of the investigations is fraud and corruption," he said in a statement yesterday.

He was responding to The Star report on Tuesday that 24 farmers had claimed that they were cheated of millions of ringgit in the sale of their land.

The farmers, cultivating vegetables and flowers, said they had exhausted all avenues to get their money.

Farmer M. Karuppayee, 72, said many reports had been lodged with the police and the Registrar of Companies, but no action had been taken, adding that the farmers had also approached the MACC.
