Apology and withdrawal of report

In reference to our report by Nora Jaswa in FMT dated Sept 19, 2017, headlined “Govt should walk the talk on high-tech businesses, says pioneer”, we unreservedly apologise to Mr. Baharom Hamzah, founder of Romstar Sdn Bhd, for any grief, distress and damage caused to him and his company.

We acknowledge that we have wrongly quoted Mr. Baharom, and the above headline is our words and not his.

We are aware that in giving such a headline we should have attempted to get Mr Baharom to verify the content and obtain his prior approval.

We therefore withdraw the article.

Editor, FMT.
