KUALA LUMPUR: The National Film Development Corporation (Finas) chairman Datuk Hans Isaac denied talk of him wanting total control of the corporation, following the recent hoopla surrounding its chief executive officer Ahmad Idham Ahmad Nadzri.
Aware about the many accusations levelled against him by certain quarters, he said this was because they did not have the correct information.
Hans, 48, also denied that he was out of step with Ahmad Idham.
Yesterday, Finas issued a statement stating that Ahmad Idham’s contract would end on March 10 next year, instead of March 14, 2021.
Hans said that the decision to shorten the contract period was made to fulfil Ahmad Idham’s own wishes.
“Two weeks ago, he applied for his service to be shortened. Nobody forced or pressured him to come to do so but he wanted to serve Finas for only a year,” said Hans in a news report yesterday.
However, he respected Ahmad Idham’s wishes and appreciated his contributions to Finas for the past eight months.
