GEORGE TOWN: Stern action should be taken against anyone found responsible of “sabotaging” the country's economy, Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) said today.
Its vice-president, Datuk Huan Cheng Guan, said the police and the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) should study the relevant laws which could be used against the country's “traitors” to put a stop to their acts of sabotage of the country's economy in future.
"I hope the government views seriously efforts by the opposition to sabotage the country's economy.
"Such an act is disgusting, and the irresponsible effort will lead to major implications in the development of the country," Huan said today.
During the launch of Ekspresi Negaraku at Dataran Putrajaya on Saturday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak took aim at a former leader and certain unscrupulous people for sabotaging the country's economy, saying that their "heartless act" could victimise the people.
He cited how Malaysia nearly lost investment worth RM31 billion from Saudi Aramco due to the unpatriotic attitude of certain quarters who fed wrong information about the country to the Saudi Arabian oil giant.
Saudi Aramco recently agreed to take a 50 per cent stake in the Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (Rapid) project.
Referring to Najib's example, Huan said it was not the first such effort by unpatriotic Malaysians to sabotage the country's economy.
"DAP leaders are among those active in sabotaging the country's economy by sending their representatives overseas to paint a bad image of the country and the government.
"Such attempts are to derail all the government's efforts in attracting foreign investments to the country," he added.
