SHAH ALAM, July 31 2018 : The family of Prof Dr Shaharuddin Badaruddin today strongly denied that the Seri Setia assemblyman was critically ill and under intensive care in a hospital as reported by some media.
This was stated by Shaharuddin’s senior secretary Zafrullah Aris who said the assemblyman was resting following treatment and, according to doctor’s advice, would be on a month’s leave before returning to duty.
He said Shaharuddin, who is a PKR vice-president and a state executive councillor, had conveyed the message to Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari.
As such, he said, Shaharuddin’s family hoped that the media and the public would stop all speculation and rumours on the health of the assemblyman.
“I also hope that all quarters will respect the family’s wish for him to be given the opportunity to rest. Let’s all pray for a speedy recovery and for him to get back to work,” he said in a statement here.
Some media reported yesterday that Shaharuddin, who is the chairman of the Selangor Islamic Affairs, Education and Human Capital Development Committee, had become critically ill due to colon cancer and was under intensive care at a hospital. – Bernama
