Hisham: New pen­sion scheme for armed forces vet­er­ans

New Straits Times - - News - Bernama

The De­fence Min­istry will an­nounce a new pen­sion scheme for armed forces vet­er­ans soon, said Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Hisham­mud­din Hus­sein.

He said the scheme was among the min­istry’s ef­forts to solve prob­lems faced by vet­er­ans who were not on the pen­sion scheme.

“We have to get the ap­proval from the prime min­is­ter.

“We pro­posed this to Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak re­cently and his ex­pres­sion in­di­cated that he agreed with the pro­posal.”

Hisham­mud­din was speak­ing at the “Jasamu Dike­nang” event af­ter pre­sent­ing medals to mil­i­tary vet­er­ans here yesterday.

Present was Deputy Min­is­ter in the Prime Min­is­ter’s Depart­ment Datuk Razali Ibrahim.

At the event, 114 vet­er­ans who served dur­ing the com­mu­nist re­sis­tance, which ended in 1989, were hon­oured for their sacri­fice and ser­vice.
