Report on naval ships scandal must be fully declassified

Let's clean the slate, which has been muddied by the sins of omission, commission and wilful misappropriation

The government has reportedly agreed to declassify the report by the special committee on governance investigation, government procurement and finance on the multi-billion ringgit littoral combat ships scandal’. 

In announcing the cabinet’s decision, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob earned the confidence of the people and the business community. 

And now that he will await the advice and views of the attorney general and auditor general, many are hoping for a speedy resolution to the cabinet decision.

Ismail Sabri’s promise that the investigation into this issue would “carried out transparently and that the government will not protect anyone involved” deserves our support. Developments on this will be closely watched.

The PM’s decision on the scandal certainly is the way to go – but the report has to be released in full, without omissions.

We must march on to clean the slate, which has been muddied and dirtied by the sins of omission, commission and wilful misappropriation. 

Hopefully, the PM will continue to step out and take many more actions of courage, without fear or favour.
