A VIDEO depicting Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein vaping during Parliamentary proceedings has made the rounds on social media.

The video had shown Hishammuddin sneaking a vape behind his face mask while his colleague Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong was speaking during Parliamentary proceedings.

According to The Star, the eight-second video was believed to be taken on Monday, when Dr Wee was delivering his winding-up speech.

Hishammuddin, however, apologised on Twitter and promised not to vape during Parliament proceedings.

Anyone found breaking the law can be slapped with a maximum of RM500 compound and can be fined up to RM10,000 or face imprisonment of up to two months, or both.
