KOTA KINABALU: Former Sabah infrastructure development minister Datuk Peter Anthony’s alleged attendance at a gathering of community leaders in Papar Friday (April 23) has raised questions as he was supposed to be in self-quarantine.

The Parti Warisan Sabah vice-president was supposed to be undergoing a self-quarantine order for 10 days from April 16 to 26, after he was identified as a close contact of a Covid-19 patient.

However, pictures and a video of him attending the "Sembang Mesra Pemimpin Masyarakat KDM Limbahau Papar" on Friday have been circulating on social media.

Earlier this week, it was reported in Kuala Lumpur that the hearing of Peter’s trial for using false documents, scheduled for Monday (April 19) had been postponed to May 3, on the grounds that he was self-quarantined.

His lawyer, Datuk D. Senthinathan, had relayed the information to the court in making the request for the postponement.

Some of the viral posts query why Peter was allowed to proceed with the gathering when he could not attend court.

Attempts have been made to contact Peter but so far no response has been obtained. His party, Warisan, has also not reacted to the incident yet.
