Read the headline again: Putrajaya appoints Petron as a fuel provider for gov’t vehicles.

Petron will be a fuel provider.

Putrajaya has appointed Petron as “one of the fuel providers” for government vehicles and a photo of the appointment letter has gone viral.

It is unclear which other companies are on the list but Petron’s appointment has raised eyebrows because Prie Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s son Mirzan is a director in Petron’s parent comany Petron Corporation, which is based in the Philippines.

PETALING JAYA: With the Ministry of Finance (MoF) having appointed Petron as one of the fuel providers for government vehicles, accusations of cronyism and nepotism are being levelled at the government.

A letter of the appointment addressed to Petron has gone viral on social media with the point of contention being that Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s son Mirzan is a director in Petron Corporation, which owns Petron Malaysia.

News portal Malaysiakini reported that it had verified with government sources that the letter had been distributed to government ministries.

The letter stated that Petron Fuel International Bhd (Petron) had been appointed a fuel provider for government vehicles through indent cards.

 

It added that it hoped the appointment of Petron would provide “a better choice and alternative” to existing fuel providers.
