An aluminum truck container manufactured by an Indonesian manufacturer has allegedly been falsely reported to have contained aluminum in Malaysia, according to a report by Malaysian media outlet Business Insider.
The report said the fake container was sold at the Malacca International Container Show in the Philippines in March 2017.
The aluminum container was reportedly sold in Malacca, Indonesia, in May 2017 for 1.8 million Malaysian ringgit ($1,926).
It was later resold at a price of 1.3 million ringgit.
According to the report, the container had been in Malaysia since 2015.
Malaysian officials said the aluminum container had already been seized in a customs raid at the port of Malacca in June 2018 and was not connected to any case.
Malacca International Port Authority director-general Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman said the container was returned to the Philippines and would be sent to Malaysia for further investigation.
Malay Airlines has denied the allegation.
“The article you are reading is not true.
The article you have quoted is not based on any credible information,” the airline said in a statement.
The Boeing 737 MAX, a popular airliner, is one of Malaysia’s largest carriers.
