Gobind says he will take immediate action to rectify problems faced by broadband users.

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo said today he has asked Telekom Malaysia to submit a report on the awarding of a contract to a company of which Tan Sri Mokhzani Tun Mahathir is the chairman.

“I have requested a report from TM. When I get that report, I will issue a statement. I asked (for the report) today. I ordered for the report to be sent to me on this matter,” he said to reporters at the Parliament lobby.

The media had reported that Opcom Holdings had secured a contract worth RM11.16 million from TM several days after the 14th General Election on May 9.

Mokhzani is the chairman of Opcom.

The contract is for the period from July 2, 2018, to Dec 31, 2019 and is for the installation and restoration of the Unifi service. — Bernama
