JOHOR BAHRU — Sept. 3, 2019: Econsave Cash & Carry Sdn. Bhd. (Econsave) yesterday lodged a police report against two Facebook accounts which it claimed had spread lies that the supermarket did not sell Muslim and Bumiputera products.

“Econsave is one of the supermarkets which sells a lot of Bumiputera and Muslim products and has also participated in programmes organised by the Halal Industry Development Corporation to provide a platform for entrepreneurs to meet supermarkets and retail outlets to market their products,” general manager Mas Imran Adam said today.

Mas Imran also said Econsave was giving the holders of the two Facebook accounts 48 hours to retract the statements which had gone viral on social media and to apologise.

JB Utara police chief ACP Mohd. Taib Ahmad confirmed that the report has been referred to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission. — Bernama
