Petronas mum over Pak Lah's termination


KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas is keeping mum on news reports that former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will take leave of his role as advisor in the national oil company.

“I read it in the media, no comment for now,” said President and Group Chief Executive Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin when met at the 39th Asia Petrochemical Industry Conference (APIC) 2018 here today.

News reports earlier quoted Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as saying that the government had issued a notice of termination to the former premier.

The termination was deemed as a right decision as the state oil company is a well-run company and does not require an advisor.

Meanwhile, Petronas is scheduled to announce its second quarter financial results on Aug 2018.--BERNAMA © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
