19 Feb – Legendary actress Datuk Sarimah Ahmad is appreciative of the Malaysian government's intention to resolve the issue she has been facing for many years regarding the four tapes of movies she produced through her company, Sarimah Film Production.

In a previous interview, Sarimah, known for classic films like "Ali Baba Bujang Lapok" and "Madu Tiga", shared that the four films, "Kabus", "Detik 12 Malam", "Dia Ibuku" and "Jejak Bertapak" were given to a famous producer 36 years ago as a way to pay her debt following the death of her husband, Allahyarham Yusof Majid.

Sarimah added that the said producer, whom she did not name, promised her that the tapes would be returned, but has yet to do so until now.

After the Ministry of Communications and Digital stated that they will help resolve the issue, the actress said that she felt truly relieved.

"To tell you the truth, I am already disheartened by what had happened. But when my son decided to talk about what happened, I thought to myself that I shouldn't stay quiet. I will do my best to get what is mine by right as long as I am still alive," she said.

Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil reportedly gave a guarantee that he would investigate Sarimah's allegations, including obtaining information and clearer details.
