"I have been collecting evidence from the preliminary investigation and if the allegation by Sultan Ibrahim of Johor is proven right, legal action will be taken against the supplier.
“The ministry will not compromise with anyone. If misappropriation is involved in the purchase of the RIV, we will take action,” he said in response to the vast difference in prices of the RIV supplied to the Special Forces Regiment as mentoned by Sultan Ibrahim last Saturday.
