MALACCA - The investigation results into the Genting Highland bus crash, which claimed 37 lives at Km3.6 Jalan Genting Highlands-Kuala Lumpur on Aug 21, will be made public, said Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

He said he had met Genting Highland Berhad senior management and asked them to cooperate with the authorities.

"I also ordered the relevant authorities to investigate the tragedy thoroughly and in a transparent manner," Hishammuddin said at the Road Safety Council annual dinner in Bandar Hilir here on Saturday.
