To me, any information after this is no longer important to me. Obviously the problem is at mof. Im sure the money didnt go missing, but was spent elsewhere.
When the refund applications is approved, means theres no problem with the applications. When theres no problem witj the applications means the amount is no longer owned by the gov. So gov cant use it. No matter for development or whatever. Its no longer gov money.
I know mof have the final say. But if the applications already been approved, and request had been sent, mof have the obligation to fulfill that request. Not giving it but instead spending it, is really unethical.
Theres no excuse for this. Previous administration fucked up in managing gst. That is now to me a big fat fact.
