Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal has scoffed at a picture of predecessor Tan Sri Musa Aman apparently in a London hospital bed, saying one is not exempt from the law even if he is ill.
Shafie, who marked his 100th day in office today, added that he did not wish to speculate whether Musa was indeed sick or when he will return to the country.
“I’m not a doctor, and I haven’t seen any medical reports. But from the photos, he has his walking stick with him in bed.
“If he was really sick, he wouldn’t need that. Crutches and a wheelchair maybe, but not a tongkat,” he said.
“But what is important is that there is no immunity for any individual in this county, whether he is away or ill, he still has to face the law,” he said.
