PRESS RELEASE ON NEW STRAITS TIMES (NST) ARTICLE ON 29 OCTOBER 2017
23 Nov 17
The Malaysian Armed Forces Chinese Veterans Association (MACVA) on 30 Oct 17, wrote and protested to New Straits Times on a misleading article published on 29 Oct 17 headlined: "RMAF veterans at special reunion dinner gives thumbs up for Budget 2018".

NST replied on 30 Oct 17 and assured us that urgent action would be taken on our compliant. In spite of a reminder, to date, we have not heard from NST.

Under these circumstances, MACVA has decided to refute the NST article and make known the true picture.

The RMAF reunion dinner was held on 21 Oct 17 with the sole purpose of getting together of many old comrades over a meal and to celebrate in being part of a larger tri-Service apolitical veteran association called MACVA.

The article by NST on 29 Oct 17 had implied during the dinner on 21 Oct 17 that we were in the know of the contents of the Budget 2018 which was only tabled 6 days later on 27 Oct 17. The dates just did not sync for us to comment on the Budget. We deemed the article as misleading and inaccurate as it associated MACVA on matters of a political nature. The NST article has jeopardized MACVA apolitical standing and thus being non-compliant with Article 14 (2), Veterans Act 2012.

MACVA takes great pride in upholding integrity and good conduct in our affairs and in whatever we do.
