Be fair when making allegations against palm oil, says Zuraida

Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin

KUALA LUMPUR: The principles of justice must be upheld when dealing with claims of labour practices or environmental matters on the palm oil industry, said Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin.

"This is a rather unfair treatment as the principle of justice is not being practised when it comes to allegations against the palm oil industry. When they receive one complaint, they put us on their so-called blacklist straightaway. But there is no verification process and this is something that must be highlighted," Zuraida said at a press conference at the Palm & Lauric Oils Conference & Exhibition 2022.
