Settle Malindo issue, MAHB told
KUALA LUMPUR: The Transport Ministry has ordered Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to immediately resolve the issue of the failure of Malindo Airways Sdn Bhd, the operator of Malindo Air, to pay the outstanding airport tax of about RM70 million.
Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said he issued the order at a meeting with MAHB chairman Tan Sri Syed Zainol Anwar Syed Putra Jamalullail last week.
“I have instructed MAHB to tackle this issue. They (MAHB) are concerned and immediate action will be taken to ensure the payment is made on time,” he said after opening the Patriotic Palm Print Mural in Jalan Genting Klang here yesterday.
Present were Federal Territory MCA chairman Datuk Yew Teong Look and Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Dr Loga Bala Mohan.
Replying to claims that there could be an element of embezzlement in the matter, Liow said those who made the claims must provide evidence so that an investigation could be carried out.
On the launch of the mural, Yew said the palm prints were symbolic of the patriotic spirit of Malaysians. The mural contains 60,000 palm prints of the public on the 600m-long wall, which symbolised the people’s support for the 60th Independence Day celebrations. Bernama
