PARLIAMENT The International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) is investigating the claim that one of its high-ranking officers had criticised Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in the presence of foreign envoys.

Initially it was reported based on a Facebook posting by one Maria Tay that the officer had described the prime minister as an "incapable worthless cow".

However, in a subsequent posting, Tay claimed the officer did not use those words, but rather ran down Najib to the point of making him appear like an "incapable worthless cow".
