Action will be taken against those who name-drop us, says PMO

KUALA LUMPUR: Stern action will be taken against those who misuse the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) title for their vested interests.

The PMO said it was a serious matter that there were certain parties who were name-dropping the PMO for their own purposes.

"Such actions are very irresponsible and it gives a negative impact on the credibility of the PMO and the government.

"Therefore, the PMO will not hesitate to take further action, including legal measures, towards those involved in such matters," said the PMO in a brief statement on Wednesday (March 15).
