SHAH ALAM, June 20 ― Fifteen petrol station operators today claimed that an international petroleum company had served them termination notice without cause, causing them to suffer loss of income from their business of more than 15 years.

According to one operator, Fauziah Ahmad Fadzil, 47, the notice which she received on May 31, only stated that they were given 30 days to vacate and return the station to the company on July 17.

She said the “insensitive” move by the international petroleum company had caused her and 14 other operators to lose more than RM2 million each which they had invested in the business.

“We want to know why the petrol stations that we have been operating all this while have been given a termination notice when we have worked hard to conduct our businesses well, and in fact, there are some of us who have obtained high marks in the customer service auditing session.

“We are not the only ones affected, the employees of our stations have also received termination notice at a time when they will be celebrating Aidilfitri. Their future look bleak without a source of income,” said Fauziah who was speaking to reporters here today on behalf of the other operators.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM) which received complaints from the 15 petrol station operators, urged the government, especially the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) to intervene in the matter.

PPIM Chief Activist Datuk Nadzmi Johan said attempts by the operators to meet and discuss with the company management was ignored, resulting in the issue not being resolved until today.

He said the government should monitor the industry to ensure that business deals were not lopsided.

“PPIM hopes the KPDNKK or the responsible agencies will look into this matter seriously as many of these petrol station operators are Bumiputera and only the government’s intervention can prevent the same happening to others,” he said. ― Bernama

3936) Taskforce to probe Kajang rent-to-own vehicle scheme company - New Straits Times - 20/7/2017



WhatsApp Image 2017-07-20 at 14.51.44
KUALA LUMPUR: Police are setting up a taskforce to investigate a Kajang-based rent-to-own vehicle scheme company accused of having duped numerous customers.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said he will personally chair a special meeting on Monday to determine the next course of action on the probe.
"I will meet with the Selangor state police chief, (the Kajang and Serdang) district police chiefs, and investigating officers to discuss the issue.
"(As of now), we have received over 50 reports on the company and I give my assurance that action will be taken (against it) in accordance with the law," he told reporters after the 24th Departmental Review of the Joint Malaysia-Thailand Working Committee Meeting on Criminal Activities.
Noor Rashid said police will review all agreements made between car owners and the rent-to-own vehicle scheme company.
"I learnt that this rent-to-own vehicle scheme has been going on for many years. The problem only emerged lately.
"We know that the victims are upset, but give us time and space to carry out investigations.
"We want know what the agreements were and whether they (were lawful)," he said.
Yesterday, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar denied claims that police were selective in their investigations into the company.
Khalid said both the Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM) and the company are being investigated following numerous reports lodged against them.
Last week, a video depicting PPIM members forcing their way into a private warehouse in Kajang to remove 40 cars went viral.
The 4-minute-58-second video showed the individuals entering the premises belonging to the rent-to-own vehicle scheme company to forcibly 'repossess' the cars.
It was reported that the "operation" was carried out by PPIM's Special Action Unit director Yusuf Azmi, along with 10 members. They were also accompanied by at least 30 individuals who claimed to have been duped by the company.
