Bernama has reported that 279 staff from the Malaysian Cocoa Board (who were due to be dismissed from 13 August) will now go back to work.

Minister of plantation industries and commodities Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong said in a statement yesterday (26 July) that the ministry and the board had reviewed the dismissal of the 279 employees.

He said the board had re-appointed 93 of the employees who will resume duties on 15 August. He commented: “The board will also re-appoint the remaining 186 employees for projects under the 11th Malaysia Plan.”

The initial issue of the board’s part-time employees being terminated was brought up by the Congress of the Union of Employees in the Public and Civil Service (CUEPACS ) – which urged the government to intervene in the matter. However, Malaysian Cocoa Board chairman Datuk Marcus Mojigoh had previously denied the dismissal of the workers.
