Statement on Warrant of Arrest in Sudan
Media Releases

PetroDar Operating Company (PDOC), a joint venture company in Sudan in which PETRONAS has an interest, is pursuing legal recourse to cancel a wrongful warrant of arrest issued against its former officers relating to trade union claims made against PDOC. PDOC’s external counsel is in the process of cancelling the warrant of arrest.


This matter is unrelated to the ongoing legal proceedings to reclaim PETRONAS’ rights over the land and the PETRONAS Complex in Khartoum, for which PETRONAS has filed a request for arbitration at the International Centre for Settlement of Dispute (ICSID).


As the legal processes have commenced, PETRONAS is unable to provide further information on both matters.
