Warisan rep chides ex-colleague over petroleum sales tax issue

Dateline 2020-11-12, FMT:

There is no truth to claims that former Sabah chief minister Shafie Apdal did not pursue the 5% sales tax on petroleum products because he was worried about offending former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Warisan’s Merotai assemblyman Sarifuddin Hata came to his party president’s defence today following comments by former assistant finance minister Kenny Chua on the issue.

Yesterday, Chua had agreed with STAR’s Tulid assemblywoman Flovia Ng’s allegation over Shafie’s refusal to pursue the matter until after the fall of the Pakatan Harapan government in February this year.
