Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu today said he leaves it to the process of law to determine the outcome of his son’s court case for drug abuse.
“I leave it to the legal practitioners. There are no comments (on the charge),” he said to reporters at the lobby of the Parliament today.
In a written reply to the Dewan Rakyat on April 4, the Home Ministry said investigations into the case involving a minister’s son had been sent to the Attorney-General’s Chambers and he is expected to be charged in court soon.
On Jan 5, the media reported that Mohamad’s son, Ahmad Saiful Islam, was one of two men detained in a police operation at an entertainment centre in Jalan Ampang.
The 31-year-old man was detained with his friend, 33, after they were found to be positive for ganja.
Mohamad had previously been reported to say that his son was the same as other people and subject to the country’s laws.
