Nungsari's "single operator" poser and Malaysia Airport's deafening silence

TTDI, 13 May/8 Ramadan: On May 1, Mavcom chief Nungsari's interview headlined Malaysia's aviation industry losing out due to single airport operator system was published in the local papers. The people at Malaysian Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) were incensed by it. Nungsari, drawing comparisons between our airports and the likes of Dubai and Changi, concluded that:
... the current single operator system, which means that there is no competition, (makes) the sector lull and unattactive. “Malaysian airports, especially our gateway hubs, do not operate 24 hours a day, which may be a reflection of the fact that airlines don’t find them attractive. This, in turn, implies that competition may be an issue.”
Only an idiot would believe that it was coincidence that the interview had taken place on the eve of the Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad's AGM (May 2).

Everyone expected MAHB to defend itself fiercely against Nungsari's assertions. 

But the next day after the AGM, neither the MAHB chairman nor its CEO responded. The following day, no statement was issued to challenge Nungsari. And now nearly two weeks later, there has just been deafening silence from MAHB.

So does silence mean consent?
