Regional Enforcement Director, Datuk Mohd. Roslan Mahayuddin of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs(KPDNHEP), has ordered enforcement officers to head on to the premise after news broke out on social media.
“Four enforcement officers from the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs of the Kajang division were sent to the petrol station and was then informed by the station’s owner about a problem with one of the tanks filled with water.“
“I was also informed that maintenance work are being done at the moment and the station should be operable as usual around 7pm. For now, all the pumps have been shut down to avoid even more damage to the consumers “, said Datuk Mohd. Roslan Mahayuddin.
