In a separate filing on Monday, Alliance Mineral said it had received lawyers' letters requesting confirmation of the date of issuance of compensation shares to its former CEO, Tjandra Adi Pramoko, and his wife Simone Suen Sze Man, a previous executive director of the company.

The letters, received after trading closed on Aug 17, requested, among other things, confirmation of when the company intends to issue 3.75 million shares each to Mr Tjandra and Ms Suen as compensation for services rendered, said the company.

Alliance Mineral reiterated that the proposed issuance of these compensation shares had not been approved by its shareholders at an extraordinary general meeting held on June 25. The company said it is in consultation with its legal counsels on the requests received from its former executives and will respond to these requests in due course.

The company had terminated the services of Mr Tjandra and Ms Suen in March this year, saying it had lost confidence in their abilities to continue their duties.

Alliance Mineral last traded at 32 Singapore cents.
