KOTA KINABALU: Sabah will not hesitate to take Petronas to court if it fails to pay up the state’s sales tax (SST) on petroleum products, says Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal (pic).

The Caretaker Chief Minister said if the national oil company could pay the 5% SST owed to Sarawak, there was no reason why it should hold back on payments due to the state.

“If they are able to pay Sarawak the SST, why not Sabah, ” he said while campaigning at Putatan near here on Friday (Sept 18).

On Thursday (Sept 17), Petronas paid RM2.95bil of SST owed to the Sarawak government.

Shafie had previously said that only Petronas, out of the nine oil companies operating in Sabah, had not paid the SST imposed in June this year.
