KUCHING, Jan 4 — A termination letter by a local company that claimed to replace Petronas workers in Sarawak with foreigner is fake, with the contractor for the oil giant lodging a police report over it.
The letter dated June 11, 2015, purportedly from JGC (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, which provides package services like procurement for the oil and gas industry, has been circulating on Facebook, WhatsApp and a blog today.
A source familiar with JGC confirmed with Malay Mail Online that the Petronas contractor, whose headquarters are in Kuala Lumpur, never issued a letter terminating the contracts of Sarawakians and replacing them with foreign workers.
“Everything in the letter is false,” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the press.
He said even the name of the person who signed the purported letter did not exist and that there was no such post as site director in the company.
“The reference number of the letter is also false,” he said.
A JGC representative lodged a report with the Tanjung Kidurong police station in Bintulu this afternoon about the fake termination letter.
Tanjung Kidurong police confirmed receiving the report from JGC when contacted by Malay Mail Online.
