PETALING JAYA: Malaysians should not worry that foreigners will hire touts to buy RON 95 petrol, said the Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumer Affairs Ministry.

“Our foreign neighbours are allowed to buy RON 97 without limit which is much cheaper than RON 95 in their own countries, so why do they have to go to the trouble of employing local touts just to buy RON 95 in Malaysia?” Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said.
