SPG defends Sarawak Govt’s stand on petroleum rights


Dateline 2016-09-09, FMT:

Suarah Petroleum Group (SPG), a Sarawakian non-profit organisation, has come out in defence of the Sarawak State Government’s actions pertaining to Petronas’ operation in the state.

The group also stressed that Petronas must be penalised for work permit violations and that Peninsular Malaysian employees working on social visit passes must be deported immediately.

In a statement, SPG responded to Unimas political scientist Assoc Prof Andrew Aeria, who in a recent interview with BFM 89.9 raised questions over the targeting of Petronas by the State Government over the issue of 13 senior Sarawakian staff who had been retrenched and whether the matter had been blown out of proportion by the State Government.

Aeria, SPG said, had also accused state politicians on both sides of the divide of failing to raise the level of political discourse and instead engaging in jingoism.
