Minister Idris assured the public that only accurate updates on the investigation’s progress would be shared in a timely manner.

However, while the Information and Orientation Ministry is assuring of giving accurate information to the public, the citizens await the outcome of the investigation, as the issues surrounding the allegation have generated different opinions and outrage by the public.
