AUSTRALIAN mining company Alliance Mineral Assets (AMAL) has terminated the services of its CEO Tjandra Adi Pramoko and his wife Simone Suen Sze Man, who serves as an executive director of the company, saying it has "lost confidence" in the abilities of both persons in continuing their duties.

In the company's filing to the Singapore Exchange, it said its board has lost confidence in the abilities of Mr Tjandra and Ms Suen in continuing to act in their respective positions.
