IPOH: A diesel wholesale company was charged in the Sessions Court here today with selling subsidised diesel to an unlicensed company last year.
Yip Kian Yew, 54, who is a business partner representing the Fullyee Petroleum PLT, however, claimed trial after the charge was read out before Judge Azizah Ahmad.
The company as a wholesale licence holder was charged and found to have sold a scheduled controlled item which was 10,920 litres of subsidised diesel to Syarikat K2 Bitumen Sdn. Bhd which did not have a valid licence or written approval from the Supply Controller.
The offence was allegedly committed at K2 Bitumen Sdn Bhd in Taman Perindustrian Tungzen, Kampung Kepayang, Batu Gajah between 8 am and 5 pm on Nov 8, 2022.
The charge was brought under Regulation 9(2) of the Control of Supply Regulations 1974 provides for a maximum fine of RM2 million and a second offence or repeat offence not exceeding RM5 million if convicted. -Bernama
