It is troubling to read the Prime Minister’s view on the Lingam Tape Report with regard to whether it would be made public or not. In responding to this question, he had said, “I want to see what is inside, what is being said and examine it in details before deciding.”

This means he has an option either to make the Report public or deny the people access to its contents. This option is not acceptable to civil society.

Aliran is happy to note that the Lingam Tape Report has been finally concluded and the Report submitted to His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

But Aliran is perturbed that there is no indication that the Report will be made public. It is our considered view that the public is entitled to have access to the Lingam Tape Report. We demand that this Report be made public.

(Malaysiakini)PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim and social reform movement Aliran have declined to withdraw statements said to be in contempt of the royal commission of inquiry into the Lingam tape.

M Puravalen and CV Prabhakaran said at the outset of the inquiry this
morning that their clients stood by their statements which had
criticised the commission’s decision not to call Anwar and two other
party leaders as witnesses.

De facto law minister Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz owes the nation an apology. He had misled the nation by claiming the existence of a “Witness Protection Bill”, when no such Bill exists. It is really shocking that the minister in charge of law should be so ignorant in matters of the law but is so loud in his views in making reference to a non-existing Bill
