Human Resources Minister M Kulasegaran has come to the defence of one of his senior aides implicated in an extra-marital affair.
“That is an old story which is more than two years old.
“There is a police report and the police are investigating,” he told reporters on Thursday (Sept 13).
Kulasegaran said no action would be taken against the officer as police investigations were ongoing.
He indicated that a fake account may be behind why the issue went viral on social media.
Kulasegaran was asked to comment on the matter of a photograph resembling his senior aide Cheung Chee Khing in a compromising position with an unidentified woman in bed.
The picture was posted on social media, purportedly by a woman claiming to be his wife.
In the post written in Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia, the woman warned other women about the man.
“Today, I want to give a reminder to all the women who want to approach my husband.
“I am used to such a situation. To all the women, don’t hope that my husband will divorce me to be with you,” read the post.
Two days ago, an aide to Deputy Home Minister Datuk Azis Jamman was sacked and put under police investigation for allegedly taking an upskirt video of a woman.
