PETALING JAYA: The government has made a u-turn and revoked its decision to allow Heineken Malaysia Bhd and Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Bhd to continue their operations during the movement control order ( MCO ).
said the approval for the breweries to continue was revoked during a special cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin.“The International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) will issue a letter of revocation immediately.“Therefore, the issue no longer arises about Heineken and Carlsberg's operations, ” he told a press conference on Monday (April 6).
On March 24, Heineken suspended operations of its brewery in Petaling Jaya due to the MCO that was in force.However, on Sunday (April 5), it obtained approval from the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry to resume limited operations with a minimal number of essential workers during the MCO.
Heineken said that only very essential staff, which was less than 10% of its workforce, would be involved in ensuring a continuous and uninterrupted supply of its products, adding that its non-essential workers would continue to operate from home.This decision, however, resulted in criticisms from PAS and Muslim groups that questioned this exemption, as alcohol is not considered as an essential item.Read more: The Star »
THIS WAS A GOOD U-TURN and once upon a time ph promised to close the factories instead ph was not imposed tax on them... This I can stuju but it must be across the board on all similar businesses based on the same principle! Esp gambling! Nanti dapat duit pi genting dan main 4D pulak! Competent and responsive government. This shows that government is listening to our voices and concerns.
U turn from bad to good... Is a good decision.... Cigarette company not closed? Rasuah tak sampai This u turn aku sokong Tahniah..u turn kembali ke jalan yang benar... Biasalah Pas bodoh kepala otak kat lutut. U turn multiple times. Agreed beers not essential why did not take the same action on tobacco Actually, allowing Carlsberg, Heineken or even San Miguel to operate at a minimum level during MCO is still ok. Some people hv to work and the government should make a clearer stand in the first place. If you want to discuss about 'Haram or Halal' - use different platform!
Pls do they same to all tobacco companies Tanya Menteri ini:- Blame the people who made the letter viral too. Jgn tax syarikat2 ni. Arak haram jd duit dari syarikat2 ni haram Tuanku says it best 'Setiap org ada membawa duit yang bertukar tangan. Duit mungkin dipegang oleh penjual babi, penjual arak dan mungkin terkena najis-najis berat. Adakah kerajaan kena pula mengeluarkan duit yang mesra Muslim? Saudara fikir lah sendiri'
All the ' holy ' ministers please return your salary & allowance The money came from SIN TAX too .. ada unsur haram Elok apa U-turn benda tak perlu ada kan bagus. Jangan pulak nak samakan cara PH U-Turn, Janji free PTPTN, janji free Tol, janji 1 juta pekerjaan, janji gaji basic1.5k, janji tiada lantikan politik, janji bulan bintang. Semua janji seronok2 sekali ... U-TURN !!! 🤣😂🤣
Kesian kat pakcik dalam video roadblock polis haritu yg kata dia keluar beli bir kerana kalau takde bir dia tak leh tidur lena. Kesian... Flip flop kings Kerajaan bagi ni jalan mula2? Baru sekarang x ok. Apa kata PaS ? All netizen hold ur anger. It would be operating but on a smaller scale. So beer drinkers, ur cold beer will still be available in stores. Chill ppl
Good wise decision. No need for them to operate. Later got case mabuk driver langgar org lg. Dah mabuk lps tu menyusahkan org saja. We are experts at u-turns these days! Pengkhianat mmg suka buat u-turn Bila jual ada puak kata non essential, lepas tu geng mabuk kata bagus utk kerajaan duit tax diperlukan oleh kerajaan, mabuk betul lah
Now we're talking 👍👍🤘 If they give donations sure all their teeth’s shining Backdoor govt. govt u-turn. Hmm 🤔 Penting sgt ke heineken & carlsberg tu! Just stay at home ppl. Menyusahkan our healthcare workers ja. Backdoor making U Turn U-turn selepas weighing all the effects and responses better than biarkan sebab ego. Good job IsmailSabri60
Allowed For Sale in Msia Sold in Every Supermarket in Msia Sold in a NonHalal Area in Supermarkets Beverage Only For Non Muslim Why Should it Not Be Allowed to operate? Will Someone Than Says Stop the Sale of Pork? Because there are other Foods? Taxes that's Seriously Needed! Syukur...dah buat U Turn..
tepat..tak penting...nanti mabuk bergaduh dalam rumah pulak... A 78-year-old man from Queensland died in the PrinceCharles Hospital, in Brisbane, overnight passenger from the ill-fated RubyPrincess cruise liner has died of the coronavirus, bringing Australia's death toll to 35. Syukur aman malaysia. Nie semua kerja PAS suhabat dgn DAP main belakang 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Memang tiada WhatsApp group chat ni..🤦♀️ aaronagai
Ismail Sabri confirms MCO exemption revoked for Heineken, CarlsbergHe said this was decided at a special Cabinet meeting FMTNews Heineken Carlsberg If this the case, ‘we’ will have the well aged beers after the MCO only if they don’t declare it as wastages. What about the operating licence for cigarette companies during MCO? Are they essential? And in this cabinet meeting the gutless MCA and MIC kept quiet I believe?
