MPs petition Petronas to quit Myanmar over treatment of Rohingya

Y’all oilers, where do you stand? This isn’t related to Malaysia waters, but a news item that should put you on a side of the fence. Anyhow, go give support. Now. Run.

Dateline 2017-11-08, FMT:

Forty-seven opposition MPs have petitioned Petronas urging the national oil corporation to pull out from Myanmar until its government recognises the rights of the Rohingya.

PKR’s Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli, who spoke for the group, said they had written to Petronas chief executive officer and president Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin seeking a meeting to discuss the issue.

“Petronas has invested in several projects in Myanmar. However, only the Yetagun gas field in the Andaman Sea is in production.

“Petronas took up a stake in the project after an American investor withdrew,” he told a news conference in Parliament today.
