Domestic Trade Ministry issues notices following rise in chicken prices during Ramadan

Author: savemalaysia   |  Publish date: Sat, 17 Apr 2021, 9:30 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, April 17 — Authorities in several states have begun taking stern action following the drastic rise of chicken prices at markets since the start of Ramadan.

Several non-governmental organisations have also urged the authorities to intervene over the issue due to the impact on the public.

In Johor, the Johor branch of the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (KPDNHEP) issued 26 notices to 20 chicken traders and wholesalers at public markets in Johor Bahru after inspections were conducted following complaints about price hikes.

Johor Unity, Trade and Consumer Affairs committee chairman Dr Chong Fat Full said the notices issued were under Section 21 of the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011 through inspections since the first day of Ramadan.

Meanwhile, Melaka KPDNHEP director Norena Jaafar said when contacted that two notices have been issued to traders and chicken suppliers in the state.

“They have been given three to five days to produce documents. If there are elements of profiteering, they will be issued compounds under Section 21 of the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011. For users, do not worry as monitoring will be done every day and if there are complaints, please inform us immediately,” she said.

Checks by Bernama at the Melaka Central Market revealed that chicken is being sold at around RM9.50 per kilogramme (kg), causing consumers to complain about the prices, which they feel is too expensive.

A trader, Hamzah Othman, 57, said never in his 30 years’ experience of selling chickens has he had to sell at such a high price, but he had no choice as the suppliers themselves had set such a high price.

“Some suppliers said the price hike was due to breeders having to sustain increases in imported feed prices of up to 40 per cent. This has happened not only here but everywhere,” he said.

Meanwhile, in Penang, the Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) urged authorities to intervene to resolve the drastic increase in chicken prices that coincided with the beginning of Ramadan.

CAP education officer NV Subbarow said the price hike had burdened everyone and that stern action must be taken against chicken suppliers.

“Previously, chicken was sold at RM7.50 a kg but now it’s sold between RM9 to RM10 per kg with the excuse that feed costs and other expenses have increased,” he said in a statement. — Bernama

Sarawak Malay Chamber of Economy appeals to SDMC to implement MCO for two weeks

Author: savemalaysia   |  Publish date: Sat, 17 Apr 2021, 9:30 PM

KUCHING, April 17 — The Sarawak Malay Chamber of Economy (Dekoms) is appealing to the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) to implement movement control order (MCO) for two weeks.

Its president Bujang Boji Sitam said with the MCO in place, it would definitely help reduce the spread of the pandemic as the current daily record has been on the rise and shows no sign of declining.

He cited the movement restrictions in March which had helped Sarawak reduce the number of positive cases and explained that Dekoms was of the opinion that with the implementation of a two-week MCO, it would not affect the economic sector too badly.

“The important thing is that the lives of the people need to be taken care of, compared to the economic downturn. If too many people lose their lives due to this pandemic, it will also cause our economic activities to be severely affected,” he said in a statement today.

According to Bujang, despite the enforcement of the Conditional MCO or the Enhanced MCO in some districts in the state, it seems that the movement of the people was difficult to control.

He added that as the country has gone through three months of MCO, he believed that the people can survive through just two weeks, and the government can ensure the people have access to food during that time.

“We are confident that during that period, corporate companies and government-owned companies will also come forward to provide assistance to the people.”

“Based on past experience, not only the government provided food aid but also government-linked owned companies (GLCs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) also came forward to provide assistance,” he said. — Borneo Post
