Punishing honesty

This is with reference to the news item ‘ANF officials probing chemical scandal transferred’ (The News, April 10). It seems the honest officers were removed because they were investigating a case in which the prime minister’s son is allegedly involved. It can be safely assumed that earlier the Anti-Narcotics Force director general was also removed for the same reason.

Does the PM think that democracy allows him to transfer or suspend anyone who dares to investigate a case in which he or his cronies are involved? If this is democracy, we are better off without it.
