Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is reported to be in good condition following an operation to remove a pancreatic tumour last Thursday.
A statement issued by his office today said Muhyiddin was resting.
“On behalf of the family, we wish to say thank you for all the prayers offered for Muhyiddin,” the statement said.
On Thursday, the Home Ministry said in a statement hat Muhyiddin had undergone surgery to remove a growth on the pancreas, which was detected at an early stage.
He is now on leave to undergo follow-up medical treatment, and is expected to return for duty within a month.
According to the statement, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad is now assuming the functions of the Home Minister during his absence.
