PETALING JAYA: An image purportedly showing Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin not practising social distancing at an event is fake.
Radzi said the image, which went viral on social media, showed that there was no physical distance between him and four others at a press conference.
“As far as I know, besides Dungun Member of Parliament Wan Hassan Mohd Ramli and Terengganu education exco Satiful Bahari Mamat, there was no one else next (to me) during the press conference at SM Sains Dungun on Oct 3.
“Upon checking, the image is actually fake.
“The malicious action of the account owner is highly irresponsible.
“A police report has already been lodged,” he said in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Oct 6).
