Tengku Mahaleel Given 1 Week to Explain

Inconsistencies in the media. Hmm…

5 Malaysian dailies have reported that Proton Holdings Bhd boardmembers have decided to give it’s chief executive Tengku Tan Sri Mahaleel Tengku Ariff a week to explain the basis of his criticisms of the government’s automotive policy.

This was decided after the meeting held on 30th June.

The 5 dailies with reports:

The New Straits Times
The Malay Mail
Berita Hairan Harian
Utusan Malaysia
The Edge Daily

Tengku Mahaleel is believed to be overseas in London now.

There is still a possibility of him losing his job.

There is no official statement by Proton, but shares have dropped 15 cents lower to RM7.20 as of yesterday.

But another article by Utusan Malaysia reports otherwise. It reports that the Prime Minister personally checked the meeting and found that no such decision to call for an explanation in 1 week was made.

Let’s see what happens.

    his 'seeming' arrogance and alienation of all parties: the govt, eon, his vendors, & mitsubishi. he's done a good job in R&D and bringing lotus and VW, but it's no use if you alienate those who helped you on your way up.

    he also stopped the japanese production culture in Proton n tried to bring in the more 'western' production style. this may have been good if our production depended more on machines than humans.

    these are things that i hear in Proton. That's why people don't like him.
