KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor will set up a website for the public to identify the list of recipients of honours in the state in a move to ensure its recipients are accountable to the public and to weed out bogus Datuks, Selangor Council of Datuks president Datuk Gan Kim Siong said. 

“Of late, there have been news reports of Datuks who had misused the title and misled members of the public. Our aim is to check on this negative trend and restore the respect of those with Datukships,” he added.
