IPOH: Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry officers have seized some 24,000kg of subsidised cooking oil from a repacking factory here.

Its state Supply, Pricing and Anti-Profiteering section head Ahrazzuddin Ahmad Hamdan said the outlet along Jalan Lahat here, was raided at about 11am.

He said checks showed that under the repacking licence, the owner was only allowed to keep 9,300kg of subsidised cooking oil.

"However the factory was found to have almost triple the amount allowed.

"We have arrested the 55-year-old owner of the factory, as well the 51-year-old manager for further investigations," he told reporters at the site.
