SHAH ALAM: The family of Prof Dr Shaharuddin Badaruddin has strongly denied that the Seri Setia assemblyman was critically ill and under intensive care in a hospital, as reported by some media today (July 31).

This was stated by Shaharuddin's senior secretary, Zafrullah Aris, who said the assemblyman was resting following treatment and, according to doctor's advice, would be on a month's leave before returning to duty.

He said Shaharuddin, who is a PKR vice-president and a state executive councillor, had conveyed the message to Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari.

As such, he said, Shaharuddin's family hopes that the media and the public would stop all speculation and rumours on the health of the assemblyman.

“I also hope that all quarters will respect his family's wish for him to be given the opportunity to rest. Let's all pray for a speedy recovery and for him to get back to work,” he said in a statement here.

Shaharuddin is the chairman of the Selangor Islamic Affairs, Education and Human Capital Development Committee.

Some media reported yesterday (July 30) that he had become critically ill due to colon cancer and was under intensive care at a hospital.

This had triggered talk of another by-election. -Bernama
