KUALA LUMPUR: Dato’ Najin Johan, chairman of the Malaysian Islamic Consumer Association (PPIM), urged Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Anwar to set up a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to investigate the previous government’s spending of RM600 billion on vaccines and Anti-epidemic matters.
He held a press conference with several non-governmental organizations and said that the association has received some complaints that the relevant funds are too large and unreasonable, and may also involve abuse of power.
“If the complaints received have facts worthy of study, they need to be taken seriously and a detailed investigation should be carried out, because a large amount of money is involved.”
He said the association would formally write to the Prime Minister’s Office next week asking the new government to take the matter seriously.
“The new government should face up to this issue and thoroughly investigate the matter to prevent abuse of power and restore the country’s stability; otherwise, what is the difference between this and the previous leadership?”

On the other hand, professional doctor Mani Mara urged the Prime Minister to appoint someone with a medical background to serve as the Minister of Health. If there is no suitable candidate, he can appoint a relevant person as a senator and then appoint a related position.
Attendees included PPIM consultant Dato’ Seri Asri, economist Zhou Guoying and practicing lawyer Xi Hua.
