Everyday there are people like those in the picture above who seek attention and fame.
They talk cock without evidence.
Yet PDRM will play along as they have nothing else to do.
But the true fact is the ones who smuggle diesel are the MALAYS THEMSELVES.
Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) has accused Chinese medium newspaper Sin Chew Daily of working with diesel smugglers.
The allegation was revealed at a press conference organised by JMM regarding the vernacular paper’s article where it quoted a government official as saying a new petrol subsidy system was in the works.
JMM deputy president Omar Saleh said it had come up with the conclusion after its research panel had studied the article and translated it for them, and had labelled the paper a “tali barut penyeludup diesel” (spy for diesel smugglers).
“We believe that this mainstream newspaper which was supposed to focus on national issues is working with diesel smugglers as the article has undermined our efforts to uncover the diesel smuggling ring,” he said at a press conference.
He said what Sin Chew Daily had done was seditious and JMM, together with other Selangor-based non-governmental organisations (NGOs) like Gagasan Penyelewengan Selangor (GAPS) and Martabat Jalinan Muhibbah Malaysia (MJMM) would be making a police report on Monday at the Dang Wangi police station at 11am regarding the matter.
“What it has done is deemed seditious because it has urged the public to oppose whatever the government has done to curb diesel smuggling.
“It is like it does not want the government to make any new policies regarding diesel and RON 95 subsidies to people based on financial brackets using a quota system,” he said.
There were also calls for the government to revoke the licence of Sin Chew Daily in order to “teach it a lesson”.
The article in question revealed that those earning under RM5,000 a month and who own cars with an engine capacity below 2,000cc will be able to buy subsidised petrol without any limit and those earning RM5,000 to RM10,000 monthly can buy 300 litres of RON95 petrol.
The article prompted Pandan Member of Parliament Rafizi Ramli to say the move will lead to an increase in fuel prices after the goods and services tax (GST) takes effect next April.
He revealed petrol would cost RM2.23 per litre, including GST, compared with just RM2.10 per litre without the GST.
When contacted, the Chinese daily declined to comment on the matter.
