During September 2019, MC confirmed a loss of approximately USD 320 million from PDS’ trade of crude oil derivatives. It later terminated the employment of an employee and lodged a police complaint against the employee on 19 September.
An announcement was later made by MC in early November 2019 that it will be liquidating PDS.
