Deputy Minister apologizes for online wedding celebration
PETALING JAYA: Datuk Che Abdullah Mat Nawi (Photo) apologized for the issue regarding her wedding celebration which has gone viral on social media over the past few days.
Deputy Minister II of Agriculture and Food Industries said the case involved his and his family’s privacy which should not be known to the public.
However, the Tumpat MP from the PAS declined to elaborate further, saying he would leave the case to his lawyer to take legal action against those involved.
âFirst and foremost, I apologize if the issue that is alleged to me has offended anyone.
âSuch a problem should not have happened. It seemed intended to embarrass or shame my family, or possibly interfere with my work, âhe said, quoted by Sinar Harian, after a working visit to Jelapang Padi Seberang Perak in Pasir Salak on Tuesday July 6th. .
Che Abdullah said he hoped people would respect his and his family’s privacy.
âI hope everyone will give me the space to resolve this issue amicably.
“God willing, this problem would not prevent me from continuing my work as deputy minister and member of Parliament,” he added.
A video conversation between the politician, the imam and two other men believed to be witnesses was widely broadcast and posted on YouTube.
Video and photos of the MP’s wedding ceremony with a woman in her twenties that had gone viral on social media were criticized because the ceremony was said to have taken place when the country was in lockdown.
A close-up of the certificate shows that the ceremony took place on June 1.
Southern Thailand is also subject to movement control restrictions.
Thailand recently imposed more stringent travel control restrictions and border controls near Narathiwat province following reports of Covid-19 cases involving the Beta (South Africa) variant.
On July 4, the Islamic Council of Narathiwat in Thailand announced that it would investigate a akad nikah (marriage celebration) ceremony allegedly involving a deputy minister that took place online.
Vice-chairman Abdul Aziz Che Mamat said they had never endorsed celebratory ceremonies online.
