Hishammuddin fined for vaping in Parliament

Foreign Affairs Minister Hishammuddin Hussein says he has been fined for vaping in Parliament.

PETALING JAYA: Foreign Affairs Minister Hishammuddin Hussein revealed today that the health ministry compounded him for vaping in the Dewan Rakyat.

Earlier today, Hishammuddin apologised for vaping during proceedings and vowed not to do it again.

His apology came after a video circulated on social media showed the Sembrong MP sneaking a puff from his vape device while Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong was debating the King’s address on Monday.

In a tweet, Hishammuddin again acknowledged his mistake.

“I have always maintained that no one should be above the rules. The health ministry has compounded me, and I will pay the fine.”
