KOTA KINABALU: The Putatan Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCCI) which was de-registered has been reinstated.
The business chamber received the confirmation letter dated January 20, this year from the Ministry of Home Affairs to allow them to resume their normal activities effective February 1.
Its president Datuk Frankie Liew, said they had submitted the letter of appeal last year to Home Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in accordance to section 18 of the Society Act 1966.
“We received the good news yesterday after waiting for six months for our appeal to be heard,” said Liew during a press conference today.
“The reinstatement was approved after we met the condition set by the Ministry of Home Affairs to submit in our annual financial reports to the State ROS office.”
“The annual reports of the business chamber was handed over to State ROS director Matthew Anak Dominic Barin yesterday morning,” said Liew who went to the ROS office in Karamunsing Complex along with its legal advisor Nelson Sim.
The business chamber which had 57 members was de-registered following its failure to submit in the required annual financial statements to the State ROS office.
Liew expressed his elation at the development saying that they were back in business all thanks to the Sabah United Chinese Chambers of Commerce (SUCCC) president Datuk Seri Panglima Gan Sau Wah for his great support.- Sayangsabah.
