And he asks the question that only the authorities can, and must answer. What we have learnt today, the authorities have known for well over a year. Suspects have been identified, payments have been traced witnesses have spoken. And yet no interrogations. No arrests. Why?

But follow the entire thread. There are some more biting questions there that need answers. The government cannot remain silent.
