Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said its nationwide airport network recorded a 52% increase in international passenger movements to 420,000 in March from February, driven by the implementation of various Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) programmes.

Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd believes an "internal irreconcilability" of the charges levelled by the Securities Commission Malaysia against the company over the alleged false RM6.01 billion revenue figure was what prompted the Attorney-General (AG) to compound the company and its top executives, instead of pressing ahead with the criminal charges against them. Serba shared its take on the matter in a 26-page long bourse filing, which it said "concerns" the Feb 7 High Court order that compelled the company to reveal the factual findings update (FFU) that was prepared by Ernst & Young Consulting Sdn Bhd (EYC), which was appointed to undertake a special independent review on the group following audit issues raised by KPMG.

Judicial Commissioner Liza Chan Sow Keng granted the extension, after the court took into account the Cabinet's position to continue with the littoral combat ship project.
