How many Bumi firms are on your panel? At the Dewan Negara yesterday, Senator Syed Ali Alhabshee wanted to know how many Bumiputera legal firms have these two Chinese-owned local banks appointed to their panel of lawyers. Syed Ali was defending Maybank's policy requiring legal firms to have at least 50% Bumiputera equity if they wish to join its panel of solicitors. Another Senator, Azizah Abd Samad, also praised Maybank's move to do its bid for the Bumiputeras.
The Senators joined Umno's G7 who said the pro-Bumi policy is not a racist policy. Read the Bernama's story here.
