“It is routine restructuring. Its not vendata”, Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Dato’ Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said when contacted.
He responded to the issue raised by Rocky Bru on the report of the summary dismissal of Co-operative Commisson Executive Chairman, Deputy Chairman and five Directors. He dismissed the summary termination of the two top most executives of co-operative regulatory body, which report to his ministry.
“Usually, there are two reasons why civil servants are transfered; 1. restructuring 2. not performing. We cant keep non performing people around, do we?”.
Ismail also added, “Restructuring is due. Every three to four years, we restructure our (ministry) enforcement officers and move them around. Its normal ministry procedure and practice”.
