Its president, Ismail Nasaruddin, said MAS must safeguard the rights of the family members until there was a closure to the missing MH370 flight.

Caregivers were also instructed to stop engaging the families and any communication to MAS should be handled by the counsel representing the families.

MALAYSIA:::MTUC urges govt to scrap proposed GST

The Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) wants the government to scrap the proposed Goods and Services Tax (GST) planned for implementation starting April next year.
