PUTRAJAYA: Certain parts of the procurement of Covid-19 vaccines were signed off by the relevant minister without the approval or agreement of the Attorney General, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic).
He said this was among findings carried out and was stated in a White Paper.
The Health Minister will table the White Paper during this Parliament meeting, he said.
"The White Paper will present irregularities found in the procurement process," he said after chairing the weekly Cabinet meeting on Wednesday (Feb 8).
Asked who was the Health Minister who had signed it, Anwar said:
"It is not the question of a particular minister, but the ministers involved will need to answer or explain," he said.
During the pandemic, two ministers were put in charge of Covid-19 pandemic-related matters as well as the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK)
Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba was the Health Minister while Khairy Jamaluddin was then the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister.
