PUTRAJAYA: Customs director-general Tan Sri Abdul Halil Abdul Mutalib said he had never taken part in any Vehicle Price Assessment Committee discussion concerning his son who is involved in car imports. 

ABdul Halil: 'In the past when cases relating to my son arose I excused myself from the meetings'

“I understand the rules governing civil service. I know that when the committee discusses cases involving my son, I cannot be part of its decision-making,” said Abdul Halil who is chairman of the committee which assesses duties on cars brought into the country under the Approved Permit system. 

“In the past when cases relating to my son arose I excused myself from the meetings,” he said after launching the DutyNet payment facility at the Shangri-La Hotel here yesterday. 

His son Abdul Hairil is a shareholder of Vision Motorsport Sdn Bhd which was issued 378 APs this year.  

The company imports the Toyota RAV4.  

Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Samsudin Osman had said that civil servants should not decide on matters involving their children and that they should declare any conflict of interest in such cases.
