Former minister Abdul Aziz Shamsuddin dies (Updated)

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Former Rural and Regional Development Minister Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Shamsuddin (pic) died at 11.52 pm on Friday (Oct 16) aged 82.

His death was announced by the Malay Consultative Council in a post on its official Facebook page.

"The funeral prayer will be held at Bukit Damansara after the Subuh prayer on Saturday (Oct 17). However, we do apologise as the standard operating procedure under this CMCO (Conditional Movement Control Order) only allows 20 people to attend it.

"His remains will be laid to rest in Gopeng, Perak, ” it said.

The Council also called on the public to pray for Tan Sri Abdul Aziz’s soul to be blessed and placed among the righteous and the pious.

Abdul Aziz’s political career began when he joined Umno in Port Klang in 1969.

In 1975, he was appointed as the Special Officer to the then Minister of Education Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and then as the Private Secretary (1981-1999) when the latter was made the country’s fourth Prime Minister.

Abdul Aziz was also the Shah Alam Member of Parliament from 2004 to 2008 and a former Umno Supreme Council member. - Bernama
