Muhyiddin: I have no links to MYAirlines


PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin says he has no links to MyAirlines and that he was not the prime minister when the airline got its conditional air service approval license.

"I found out there are parties trying to associate me with the troubles involving MYAirlines... I don't even have any knowledge about the background of this company.

"Based on my search, the company obtained a conditional air service approval license on Dec 22, 2021, when I was not the prime minister.

"The involvement of Rosli Dahlan Saravana Partnership (RDS) law firm as legal representatives for MYAirlines company shareholders cannot be attributed to me," he said, adding that RDS as the law firm had the right to represent anyone who needs legal services.

The former prime minister said he believed certain parties are trying to tarnish his good name by making malicious accusations of his involvement with the company.

On Oct 12, MyAirline abruptly suspended operations citing financial issues pending shareholder restructuring and recapitalisation.

About 125,000 passengers, with tickets worth RM20mil, have been affected by MYAirline's sudden suspension.

Following the announcement on Oct 16, Transport Minister Anthony Loke said the license of low-cost carrier MYAirline Sdn Bhd will be suspended temporarily.
