Retired Military Veterans Hold Peaceful Protest

6 Jun 2022 – About 500 army veterans held a peaceful assembly at Tugu Negara this morning.

The veterans said they were left with no other option but to assemble peacefully after eight years of attempting to use the right channels to air their grievances on the issue of pensions.

The veterans outlined several demands including a review of the pension rate and pension payments for those who served in the army for less than 21 years.

Currently, only members of the army who served for at least 21 years were able to get a monthly pension.

The group of veterans claimed that around 330,000 veterans were deprived of their rights, with around 135,000 of them not eligible for pension payments.
