KUALA LUMPUR – Deputy Minister of Health, Datuk Dr. Noor Azmi Ghazali apologised for violating the Movement Control Order (MCO) during his visit to a tahfiz centre at Lenggong, Perak recently.
“I have given my statement to the police at the Putrajaya District Police Headquarters and I gave full cooperation to the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) in their investigation.
“I also appreciate the commitment given by the police in carrying out their duty enforcing the law by treating everyone equally,” he said in a statement today.
According to Noor Azmi, the incident on 17 April took place during his official visit to the Lenggong Health Clinic where he paid a field visit to the healthcare workers who are stationed there to fight the Covid-19 outbreak.
“I admit my mistake and I apologise to all Malaysians. I appreciate the huge sacrifice of the frontliners such as the PDRM, Malaysian Armed Forces, the healthcare workers from the Ministry of Health and other government agencies involved in curbing the Covid-19 outbreak,” he said.
He also prayed that all Malaysians will be given patience to face the hitches calmly during the MCO. -MalaysiaGazette
