Johor exco member goes on leave amidst graft probe

According to Bernama, Abd Latif went on leave from today to "clear his name". Abd Latif is in charge of housing and local government.
"He (is going on leave) to handle the issue with his family and special officer," fellow exco member Jais Sarday told reporters in Kota Iskandar.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
