Police: No further action on Pas minister who breached quarantine

By S. Harrish

POLICE said there will be no further action against Pas minister Datuk Khairuddin Aman Razali over his alleged breach of the quarantine order after returning from overseas in July.

Bukit Aman CID chief Huzir Mohamed said the decision was made as the Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister had not been issued the form to undergo quarantine upon returning to the country, reports FreeMalaysiaToday.

The Pas MP was investigated after an uproar over his alleged violation of his mandatory quarantine order upon returning from a trip to Turkey.

“The investigation papers had been referred to the Attorney-General’s Chambers and we were instructed to classify this case under ‘no further action’,” he said at a press conference today.

He was subsequently issued a RM1,000 fine by the health ministry and had been under investigation by the police.

Politicians on both sides of the divide, including former primary industries minister Teresa Kok and former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, have called for him to resign and for him to be charged in court, similar to how ordinary Malaysians were also charged and convicted for breaching the mandatory quarantine order.
