SEREMBAN, March 18 (Bernama) -- The Negeri Sembilan Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry (KPDN) foiled the activities of misappropriation of suspected subsidised diesel, amounting to 15,000 litres worth RM32,250, at premises in Rantau near here yesterday.

Its director, Muhammad Zahir Mazlan said during the ‘Op Tiris’ raid at about  6 pm, KPDN seized a lorry, tanker and equipment used for the activities. The total value of all seized items was RM98,950.

"The inspection at the premises found the activity of transferring diesel fuel being carried out with the involved individuals did not have special licences or permits or authorisation letters from the Controller of Supplies to deal with Scheduled Controlled Goods," he said in a statement today.

He said two local men, aged 50 and 52, were arrested to help in the investigation under the Control of Supplies Act 1961.

Muhammad Zahir said inspections and operations conducted under Op Tiris were to curb the issue of misappropriation and leakage of subsidised diesel and impose strict action against irresponsible individuals or companies.
