Cut the rhetoric and move on


IT ALL started innocuously enough. Last week, Sarawak Tourism Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah (pic) told reporters in Kuching that the state had yet to receive some RM2.7mil in tourism tax revenue from the federal government.

Actually this is not new. Last November, in his winding-up speech, Abdul Karim told the state assembly that Sarawak was still waiting to receive its share of the tourism tax, which amounted to RM439,731 from September to December 2017 and another RM2.3mil from January to September last year.
