*********************The Cabinet must make the report of the Royal Commission of Inquiry on the Lingam video tape public because the public got to know what really transpired during that period of time with regard to our judiciary appointments.
Though a number of big names were involved that mustn’t be the reason to deny the public of its privileges of knowing the truth.
Don’t punish VK Lingam alone but also those who conspired with him need to bring to book.
