PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Zuraida Kamaruddin says that she has accepted in principle, her press secretary's decision to resign.

In a statement Monday (June 10), the Housing and Local Government Minister said she received Ahmad Soffian Mohd Shariff's notice of resignation through WhatsApp.

Bernama reported that he is the husband of lawyer Syazlin Mansor, who withdrew from the inquest into the death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

"As I am presently abroad for certain matters, I will deal with the issue on my return," Zuraida said.

She described the former staff member as dedicated and highly committed in his responsibilities.

Ahmad Suffian informed the media through WhatsApp Monday morning that he had sent his letter of resignation and would be on leave for one month.

Attorney General Tommy Thomas had said that Syazlin was in a conflict of interest position when she represented the Housing and Local Government Ministry, the Fire and Rescue Department and the family of Muhammad Adib in the inquest. – Bernama
