Selangor Royal couple conveys condolences to Tun Salleh Abas' family

PETALING JAYA: Selangor's royal couple conveyed their sympathies and condolences to the family of Tun Mohamed Salleh Abas' family on his passing.

Selangor’s Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah said the former Lord President was a principled man who always upheld the Federal Constitution in all his actions.

"According to Tuanku Sultan, Allahyarham Tun Salleh was a great Malaysian jurist and a man of principle who fought for the independence of the judiciary, which safeguards the rights and privileges provided in the Constitution.

"He upheld the rule of law and the separation of powers under our Constitution," the Selangor Royal office said in a statement on Facebook.

His Highness along with Tengku Permaisuri Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin wished for Mohamed Salleh's family to remain strong during this difficult time and prayed for his soul to be placed among the faithful.

Mohamed Salleh, 91, died at Hospital Sultanah Nur Zahirah in Kuala Terengganu at around 3.20am on Saturday (Jan 16), two days after he tested positive for Covid-19.

He was later buried at the Jalan Pusara Muslim Cemetery in Kuala Terengganu at around 10.30am.
