Lick-ass ministers Part II

I was so elated reading about this on the treadmill this morning.
Eventhough news (mainsteram) from the homeland says this is not true (in a way) and didn't flash it out as big as The NY Times, I would want to know other than this.

At last the lords has spoken.
And as described in the news --  this move was infact 'a rare and explicit intervention in politics, the sultans of nine of Malaysia’s states' . 
According to the news, they have called for a swift and transparent investigation into a political scandal involving Prime Minister Najib Razak, saying his failure to resolve allegations of corruption had created a “crisis of confidence” in the country.

An excerpt;

Malaysia’s central bank and anticorruption officials are investigating whether millions of dollars transferred into Mr. Najib’s accounts came from companies linked to a government fund that Mr. Najib oversees.
The statement by the sultans, who have a largely ceremonial role, was their most direct intervention in politics in recent history. Analysts said it was likely to provide support for the embattled officials who are investigating the scandal and buttress the position of the growing ranks of Mr. Najib’s political opponents.

The national news agency, Bernama circulated a statement mentioning that "the findings of the investigation must be reported comprehensively and in a transparent manner so that the people will be convinced of the sincerity of the government, which shall not at all conceal facts and the truth,” .

And as the issues has never seen any positives interventions from necessary party(s), which indirectly provokes the rakyat's need in knowing what is happening actually; this timely action by the rulers come in a much needed time as people are losing hope and trust in the current government.

However, I'm pretty sure those lick-ass cabinet ministers will definitely find ways and mean trying to buck-up their boss's ass.

We shall wait and see what comes next...
