KUALA LUMPUR — August 8, 2017: The Transport Ministry has ordered Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad to immediately resolve the issue of the failure of Malindo Air to pay an outstanding airport tax of about RM70 million.
Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai issued the order at a meeting with MAHB chairman Tan Sri Syed Zainol Anwar Syed Putra Jamalullail last week.
"I have instructed MAHB to tackle this issue. They (MAHB) are very concerned and immediate action will be taken to ensure the payment is made on time," said Liow after an event here today.
In response to claims that embezzlement could be a factor, Liow replied that those who made the claims must provide evidence so that an investigation could be carried out.
