HR ministry probing claims interns not paid allowance, says PM
Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim says he is still waiting for the report on the claims.
Kuala Lumpur: Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim is still awaiting the report on claims that some students are not receiving an allowance while undergoing industrial training.

He said the human resource ministry is still reviewing the report.

“The ministry has taken the report and I’m waiting for updates,” he told reporters after officiating a seminar at Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka here today.

This follows allegations that some interns with government ministries, departments and agencies, as well as private companies have not been getting an allowance.

Anwar also said he would examine any proposal to enact a special law to protect the welfare of interns.

“When the finance ministry and I receive the proposal, I will take appropriate action,” he added.
