PH presidential council must listen to people’s pleas

Many are hoping that the government of the day will act more decisively in resolving these two crimes, the Altantuya murder and the 1MDB scandal, writes JD Lovrenciear.

Whatever the outcome of the Pakatan Harapan’s pre-presidential and presidential council meetings today, many Malaysians would like to make two important pleas.

All the presidents’ men and women should not ignore or even attempt to give lip service to these pleas. 

First, we need a principle-centred, law-abiding closure to the Altantuya murder mystery. 

The latest revelations by two sources, Sarawak Report Sarawak Report and Americk Sidhu, indicate there are many loose ends that demand closure. We cannot leave it to time and tide for justice to prevail for justice delayed is justice denied. 

Two, few would disagree that the ongoing kleptocracy trials in court should be expedited so that justice can prevail soon. There is only so much that we can stomach. 

Many are hoping that the government of the day will act more decisively in resolving these two crimes, the Altantuya murder, and the 1MDB and related thefts. 

How soon we can achieve a formal, acceptable, righteous closure of these two epic cases will set the tone for our beloved nation’s future.  

Hopefully, the PH presidential council will listen to these pleas.
