LPG distributors deny failing to keep records

BUTTERWORTH: Two licensed liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) distributors claimed trial in two separate Sessions Courts here to a total 368 counts of failing to upkeep their stock books last year.

Permai LPG Sdn Bhd, represented by the company’s director Lim Back Sim, 61, denied 171 charges of failing to keep records of the sales details which show the date, quantity, price, name and address of buyers for the LPG sold.

The company is alleged to have committed the offences between Jan 1 and Dec 28 last year at its premises in Kawasan Perindustrian Valdor, Sungai Bakap.

Meanwhile, Permai Gas Sdn Bhd, represented by its director Lim Back Heong, 58, also pleaded not guilty to 197 charges of committing a similar offence between Jan 7 and June 30 last year at its premises in Kawasan Perindustrian Bukit Minyak in Bukit Mertajam.

Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry’s DPP Edward Chan prosecuted while both companies were unrepresented by counsel.

The courts set Aug 30 for submission of documents and for the companies to appoint their lawyers.
