Malaysia's Loan Report Print E-mail
Sunday, 27 April 1986

Making public the committee of inquiry's report on Bumiputra Malaysia Finance [Mar. 23] was in the national interest. It does not need anyone as professional as Mr. S. Woodhull [LETTERS, Apr. 6] to tell him that. The national interest outweighs all other considerations. It is for a court of law to decide whether allegations in Final Report are based on rumours or hearsay evidence. If Final Report has done anyone an injustice, there is every recourse through the courts.

I hear nothing of Mr. Woodhull's story. What I want to know and what I'm entitled to know, is how such a huge amount of my country's wealth could have been squandered by sheer negligence, or maybe hanky-panky in high places. Publishing the committee of inquiry's report was one way in which to answer the queries of ordinary Malaysians who have been shocked by the whole affair. Thus I have nothing but respect for the three members of the Noordin Committee. A public committee investigating a public scandal must report to the public; that is the basic rule. Truth fears no trial.
