Malaysia’s Sarawak state to pursue sales tax lawsuit against oil firm Petronas


Dateline 2020-07-11, Reuters:

Malaysia’s energy-rich Sarawak state will pursue legal proceedings against national oil company Petronas over the non-payment of sales tax, backtracking on a settlement agreement reached last month, national news agency Bernama reported.

Petronas and Sarawak had reached a settlement in May, with the energy company agreeing to pay 2 billion ringgit ($470 million) in back sales taxes, and Sarawak agreeing to drop a civil lawsuit it filed last year to seek the funds.
