Challenges to Credibility: Minister’s Response Post Cabinet Meeting

During a press conference following the Cabinet meeting, Fahmi states, “I think we don’t have to entertain him anymore.” He expresses respect for Dr Mahathir’s twilight years but questions the origin of the former prime minister’s data.
