Set­tle Malindo is­sue, MAHB told

New Straits Times - - News -

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
