PUTRAJAYA, Dec 21 (Bernama) -- The government has no intention to cover up the case of the missing aircraft engine belonging to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF), Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today.
The prime minister said that a police report was lodged when the Defence Ministry realised the incident which happened during his time as minister in charge.
"In fact we went forward to the police. At that time I was the minister in charge. I decided we should report it to the police," he told reporters after chairing the Malaysian Aerospace Council meeting here.
Najib was commenting on the case of the missing RMAF F-5E fighter jet engine in 2007, which was sold to an international company based in South Africa.
On the brigadier-general who was sacked but who retained his pension, Najib said it depended on what he had done wrong and it was up to the Air Force and the Armed Forces to decide on that.
"We wait until the full report comes out because we have cooperated with the police," he said.
It took two years for this case to come to public attention. This shows that there is cover up.
Why that long?
It was a cover up for the last one year.The timing of this announcement is to give you ample time to settle down and prepare excuses.
Things are happening in quick succession. This and many other cases are sufficient to convince the people that serious reforms are urgently required.
Voters,Please open your eyes! The goverment that you had voted in 2008 is abusing tax payers money every where. Do you still want them to govern our country in the next election.
UMNO members..Do you understand what is happening?
