Thomas said this was one of the reasons he requested Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin revoke Syazlin’s appointment to represent the ministry and the Fire and Rescue Department at the inquest.MyKMU writer Abdul Jalil Backer asked why use the conflicted excuse? Everyone including Tun Dr Mahathir's lawyer, Hanif Khatri is asking why only now?
Syazlin’s appointment, said Thomas, caused a conflict of interest in the inquest proceedings because apart from representing the ministry and the department, she also stood in for Muhammad Adib’s family.
“The interests of these parties may conflict and it was unacceptable for her to act for all parties.
However, there is no dispute with the particular reasoning. However, if Syazlin is conflicted, Tommy too is conflicted. He should have refrained from getting involved in the Inquest and withdraw from making any decision. Not only the public had forgotten, Tommy may have forgotten.
