The National Oil Corporation (NOC) has condemned what it described as legal confusion and fallacies of the Minister of Oil who claimed that the Chairman of NOC Mustafa Sanallah was suspended from work on October 14, 2021.
The NOC clarified in a statement that the Administrative Control Authority, which is the highest supervisory authority in the country, had ruled that the decision of the Minister of Oil regarding the suspension of Sanallah was invalid, and considered that his decision is worthlessness because it was issued by a non-specialist.
The NOC noted that these “flawed decisions” were issued by the Minister of Oil with more personal than professional motives, which reflect a great shortcoming and lack of understanding of the law regulating state institutions, which defines the powers of everyone without exception.
The NOC statement indicated that the minister insists on transgressing his powers and practicing a policy of misinformation for the purpose of disrupting the work of the National Oil Corporation.
The NOC affirmed that it retains its legal right to defend its positions aimed at continuing production and achieving the highest revenues to support the national economy and achieve the aspirations of all honorable and patriots, adding that it will not allow anyone to infiltrate, politicize or drag it from the areas of neutrality that it has adhered to for years.
