Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he was ready to meet Kulim-Bandar Baharu Member of Parliament Zulkifli Nordin who had expressed his wish to apologize for being a victim of slander.
"I'm glad to meet him and find out the truth because I believe the truth will prevail eventually," he said.
On Wednesday, Zulkifli had said that he would meet and apologize to certain individuals, including the Prime Minister, for being a victim of slander.
Zulkifli, now an independent MP after being sacked by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) on March 6, dropped a bombshell in Parliament by alleging that he was offered a hefty reward to implicate Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, in the murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Asked if a committee would be set up by police to investigate Zulkifli's claim, Najib said: "I 'll leave it to the police. I don't direct the police in such matters. Just leave it to the police."
Meanwhile, Najib confirmed that Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman was recovering from a coronary by-pass operation last week and would continue his duties after recovery.
Earlier, an oath taking ceremony was held to welcome new Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Hamidah Osman who will represent the Wanita Umno movement.
Najib said the appointment of the Wanita Information Chief who is also a Perak Exco member was based on the party's new constitution.
