KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 12 – Party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the new government must not let some questions go unanswered by the ‘Keluarga Malaysia’ government.
This is because the truth needs to be made public since the people demanded it.
“It has been several days since the Umno Supreme Working Council (MKT) Meeting on August 27 asked the new government to set up a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI).
“The establishment of RCI is to investigate various revelations made by former Attorney General Tan Sri Tommy Thomas through his memoir book entitled ‘My Story: Justice In The Wilderness’,” he said in a Facebook posting, today.
Zahid who is also Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman explained that this included revelations that raised the question of possible political interference in the Attorney General’s, Judiciary and Security institutions during the country’s 22-month government under Pakatan Harapan.
“Actually, this insistence is not new, instead it has been made by many parties since the beginning of this year with hundreds of police reports being lodged.
“Umno through its Secretary General Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan also lodged a report at the Dang Wangi District Police Headquarters on 5 February 2021.”
He said the country needed answers to all the questions behind the disclosure that was either ‘intentional’ or ‘unintentional’ through the book.
“Because it involves the dignity and supremacy of the Constitution and the rule of law. The unraveled question even has the potential to answer more questions on what happened after May 9, 2018.
“The 18-month government has not moved to set up the RCI, so we hope the new government can make it a reality,” he added.
