Petronas is accused of violating a United Nations arms embargo by providing fuel to military aircraft in Sudan. Geoffrey York of the Globe and Mail reports.
Jika harga petrol dan tarif elektrik naik, semua harga barangan dan perkhidmatan akan naik. Kos hidup rakyat akan naik. Apa yang akan berlaku kepada rakyat yang kebanyakkannya berpendapatan rendah? Adakah pembayaran rebet RM625 dan RM150 akan dapat mengurangkan beban rakyat? Tidak sama sekali, tegas Jerit.
We take umbrage to Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s statement which was reported in the NST on 31 December 2007. He was quoted as saying, “The country will go bankrupt if the government reduces oil prices, which are sky-rocketing in the world market. It is not possible for the opposition to bring fuel prices down. It simply does not make sense…they are just trying to fool the people.
“We can use Petronas’ profits to reduce fuel prices, but only if we forego development projects like building schools and universities.”
K George writes to the Prime Minister, urging him to take just and appropriate action on the issues that have tarnished his 'Mr Clean' image. "Makethe battle against corruption your priority, make accountability your trademark, act justly and fairly without fear or favour and seal your leadership and restore your waning credibility," he urges.
