KOTA BAHARU – The Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism (MDTCC) is in the process of filing 64 cases involving offences under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act to the court.
Its secretary-general, Datuk Seri Alias Ahmad said since the implementation of the Goods and services Tax last April 1, six cases involving offences under the law were taken to court and the offenders penalised.
