Hisham sorry for vaping in Parliament


FOREIGN Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein (pic) has apologised following a viral video of him vaping during Parliament proceedings.

The eight-second video is believed to have been taken on Monday when Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong was delivering his winding-up speech.

Hishammuddin apologised on Twitter and promised not to smoke during Parliament proceedings.

“Sorry, I didn’t realise – it’s a new habit. I apologise to the Dewan and promise not to do it again,” he tweeted.

Smoking is strictly prohibited in Parliament and the rule was tightened during the Pakatan Harapan administration.

Former health minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad declared Parliament a non-smoking area in October 2018.

Those caught smoking at prohibited areas can be fined RM10,000 or jailed for not more than two years.
