With the current judicial issue that has been blown out of cover, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nazri Abdul Aziz should admit that he has been feeding the rakyat with false information regarding the incidents that affect his ministry since taking office such as the Lingam tape.

Nazri should gracefully resign from his position to take responsibility for his failure to tackle the problem or the cabinet should immediately sack him for covering up these incidents which has tarnish the reputation of the government and the rakyat in Malaysia.

It’s time for Nazri to accept the rakyat's decision since he had been given a government-aided education in the legal field in the United Kingdom and which he should have used with pride and wisdom.

It is the responsibility of the government to conduct an investigation on the incidents reported and punish all those involved, irrespective of their standing. A independent body comprising of the ordinary rakyat should be established to avoid further confusion on the neutrality and independence of the panel decision. Anyone who had fouled the law should be reprimanded and punished, and only with this act will the confidence of the rakyat be restored.
