A Mavcom spokesman told The Malaysian Insight that until this year, PSC rates, formerly known as airport tax, had been stagnant since 2011.

  • What is the role of this stupid money eating commission? Why is it collecting money for a government who doesn't know how to build a low cost airport. Why is umno subletting toll collection to a 3rd party. Sack this fellows, charge then with fraud.
