THIS was reported by Malaysiakine and the MSM that Haidar had submitted the commission REPORT to the Agung this morning.
Earlier, I read that the chief of the commission said that it was up to the Cabinet to decide if it should be made public. Later on in the day he said that it should be made public.
But I thought this was a ROYAL commission. Yes? So what business has the Cabinet to decide. We are aware that most of their decisions will be partisan in nature, not discounting the fact that not all members of the Cabinet can boast of having squeaky clean closets. They have no business deciding whether it is fit for public consumption. The King should decide on the advise of the Commission. Period. LET IT NOT BE SAID THAT IN MALAYSIA, WITH THE COOPERATION OF THE GOVERNMENT, ALL THINGS NEFARIOUS CAN EASILY FIND SUCCOUR UNDER THE CARPET. I for one, wait with bated breath for some quality decisions for a change. Meantime, I hold my breath.
And it is about time, journalist start asking more open-ended questions rather than questions that get you a yes or a no when interviewing decision makers. You can't just let them off so easily. You have a public audience. Did anyone ask the PM: Why should the cabinet have to decide? If any member of the Cabinet or government is implicated what action would you institute against these wrong-doers in keeping with your stated desire.....It was a public hearing, why shouldn't the deliberations and recommendations be made public......Public funds were used, so why should not the recommendations be made public. I am no journalist....but I prefer to elicit information rather than get a bland yes/no answer.
