Datuk Rosol Wahid- Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: An amendment was passed by Dewan Rakyat to make it an arrestable offence to "discriminate against or boycott" Malaysian palm oil, says Datuk Rosol Wahid.

"With the expansion of the scope of Act 730 (Trade Descriptions Act 2011), statements, expressions or indications against Malaysia’s major commodities, such as the expression “no palm oil” used in any advertisement including food labels, notices and catalogues will be prohibited," the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Deputy Minister said when tabling the Trade Descriptions (Amendment) Act 2021 in Dewan Rakyat on Thursday (Oct 28).
