Former law minister Zaid Ibrahim demands govt transparency on vaccine agreements

The former law minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim is calling the government to be transparent on the vaccine procurement, while adding that the transparency would aid in reducing the suspicion that the supply is being suppressed in order to create monopoly.

A media outlet reported that Zaid said that as the nation has only vaccinated about 4 per cent of its entire population, Malaysia has been in a struggle against the Covid-19 pandemic.

He added that the government’s lack of transparency to its people over the vaccine agreements is making the public suspicious of the supplies being throttled to create monopoly which keeps the prices of the vaccine unusually high.

That being said, Zaid called for the government to disclose the details of the vaccine procurements with the manufacturers.
