The government is still of the view that it is not necessary to reveal the final report of the Cabinet Special Committee on the implementation of the Malaysia Agreement (MA63) to the public.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak Affairs) Datuk Hanifah Hajar Taib said the decision was taken after considering various aspects.
“To date, the government is sticking to its decision that it is not necessary to reveal this report to the public.
“This decision takes into consideration various aspects like legal as the contents and discussions recorded are of a technical nature and involve matters that are sensitive with official secret status,” she said during the Question-and-Answer session in the Dewan Rakyat today.
She was replying a question from Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman (Warisan-Sepanggar) who wanted to know if the report will be revealed to the public.
Earlier, Hanifah Hajar had said the current government was only continuing the policies of the previous government and had no intention to adopt delay tactics on implementing decisions reached by the previous committee. – Bernama
