Small-business owners urged to submit bank accounts for BR1M
Finance Minister II Johari Abdul Ghani denied today that small-business owners registered under Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) had their Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) applications rejected.
"Some people were complaining that their BR1M applications were rejected. They are not being rejected, but we want more particulars.
"What happened was some of these applicants were not working with any company. They are small proprietors and small businesspersons," Johari told Malaysiakini.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
