Law minister: Is Musa Aman’s son sick as well?

Published:  |  Modified:

In view of Musa Aman’s return to Malaysian shores, de facto Law Minister Liew Vui Keong has asked of the whereabouts of the former Sabah chief minister’s son Yamani Hafez Musa.

Yamani Hafez, who is Sipitang MP, was absent at last month’s Dewan Rakyat oath-taking ceremony. 

“While we have been inundated with unsubstantiated claims on social media about his (Musa’s) so-called ‘medical conditions’, his son was seen standing by Musa looking prim and healthy.

“At this moment, (Yamani) has shown a complete disregard of his responsibility as an MP and he has completely shown disrespect to the august House by not turning up for the swearing-in ceremony in Parliament last month without legitimate explanation,” he said in a statement today.

“The people want to know if he is as sick as his father [...],” he added.

Liew previously said that Yamani had not informed Parliament of a reason for being absent and that the latter had until Jan 16 next year to take his oath or risk disqualification.

'Prove you are ill'

Meanwhile, Liew also called for Musa to produce a medical report to substantiate his alleged grave medical condition.

“Musa’s initial whereabouts have sparked speculations among the people and he (Musa) should corroborate his claims with a medical report instead merely posting a photograph of himself on Facebook via his political secretary,” he said.

Liew further urged for Musa to be subject to the full brunt of the law.

Musa, who left the country on May 16 following a police report by Sabah governor Juhar Mahiruddin accusing him of criminal intimidation, was previously said to have been seeking medical treatment in London after a heart bypass surgery. 

This was communicated in a Facebook post by his former political secretary Joh Wid.

Sabah police are now probing Musa and are waiting for him to regain his health before taking his statement, assuring that the Sabah Umno politician will not be enjoying any “special treatment”.
