Continued watch on profiteering since diesel price floated


PETALING JAYA: A total of 210 notices have been issued and seven probe papers opened in relation to profiteering following the restructuring of the diesel subsidy, says the Deputy Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister.

Fuziah Salleh said a proactive monitoring process under Ops Kesan 2.0 has been conducted since the targeted diesel subsidy programme began.

She said the ministry had identified 1,772 reserve stocks for price comparison before and after the rationalisation exercise.

Fuziah said for now, the ministry had not implemented targeted subsidies for specific sectors. However, those who wished to be included could approach the relevant ministries.

“For example, farmers can reach out to the Agriculture and Food Security Ministry while the construction sector can approach the Housing and Local Government Ministry.

“(This is) so that engagement can continue and the appeal committees can review the situation,” she added.

She was responding to a supplementary question from Muhammad Fawwaz Mohamad Jan (PN-Permatang Pauh) on the impact of the rise in diesel price on the construction sector.
