Nowadays, everything we read online or on the news is kind of depressing or anger-inducing.
And the latest person to make Malaysian netizens furious is International Trade and Industry Minister, Azmin Ali.
The minister was recently in the United Arab Emirates to secure investments for several industries in the country and also had a chance to perform a mini pilgrimage (Umrah) in Mecca and Madinah.
Azmin went to the Middle East from 27 April to 4 May and netizens were upset after it was found that the minister had failed to observe the standard quarantine procedure upon returning from his overseas trip.
He has attended meetings and even went to the Putrajaya IPD to hand out donations and met with the Putrajaya Chief Police since returning.
Even Azmin’s estranged brother, Azwan Ali, was not too happy with his actions.
Some even pointed out that he had came back from a place which has a new COVID-19 variant while others accused the Gombak MP of practising double standards.
Will there be action taken on the minister for flouting quarantine? Most unlikely.
Health Director-General Tan Sri Hisham Abdullah says that ministers would only need to be quarantined for only three days with strict guidelines with approval from the Cabinet. You can read about it here
