Plugging subsidy leaks at Thai border

KOTA BARU: The Kelantan Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry will continue to combat subsidy leakage at the Malaysia-Thailand border, says its director Azman Ismail.

This is in collaboration with the Kelantan Caltex Dealers Association (PDCK).

He said the focus is on the 96km river area between Kelantan and Thailand.

“We have a special unit together with other agencies including the military, police, Immigration Department and the Customs Department to prevent leakages involving supplies such as diesel, cooking oil, sugar and flour.

“The most challenging issue is when perpetrators cross the border, as our jurisdiction is limited to this state only,” he told Bernama.PDCK chairman Che Din Mohamad said petrol station operators in Kelantan had stated their commitment to continue following government guidelines to prevent diesel subsidy leakage.

“If we receive reports of leakage with solid evidence among petrol station operators, especially within our association, we will not hesitate to hand the matter over to the authorities,” he said.
