At another press conference, de facto Law Minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim said initiating an investigation or a commission would be a waste of taxpayers’ money.
“What is important is for us to move forward and take steps to restore the public’s confidence in our Judiciary, and for these allegations not to recur,” he said.
He said the latest revelation was not only regrettable but also a bad reflection on the country and its judiciary system.
“I can’t say that I was surprised by the latest allegation, as I have heard so many stories in the past. This is just one of them,” he said.
“This is the first time I have heard about boot camps for judges. I have no reason to doubt that the allegations are not true, unless there are people who say otherwise.”
