Two former Caltex petrol station operators are planning to sue the domestic trade, cooperatives and consumerism ministry (KPDNKK) for claims the ministry did not defend its 2000 circular on implementation of self service at petrol stations across Malaysia.
Former operators Fadzilah Abd Hamid and his wife, Fauziah Ahmad Fadzil, have alleged that this circular had caused their contracts to be terminated by Chevron Malaysia Limited, which owned Caltex stations here.
“We adhered to the April 11, 2000 circular which said we operators do not need to bear any cost for the implementation of the self service system and the oil company is the one which should fork out the money for the system,” he told reporters at a press conference today.
He added Caltex, as it was known then, had ordered them to pay the cost for the system’s implementation, going against the circular’s order.
