Wednesday, 14 Sep 2022 8:51 PM MYT KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak can buy his own medicine from other sources if he does not want to accept the medicines provided by the Health Ministry (MOH).Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the family members of the former prime minister had been informed of the matter.28 billion of 1Malaysia Development Berhad’s (1MDB) funds.“But I understand even in the prison Datuk Seri Najib brings his own medicine.4 kilometres (km) from Sri Petaling to Jalan Hulu Kelang would reduce traffic congestion along the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), Jalan Ampang and Jalan Loke Yew by an average of 30 per cent.So we do not have any problem if he wants to get his own supply of medicine but I understand he had been brought to Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) and as such he can only use the medicines prescribed to him,” he said.“Now, Yang Arif, I finally met my client, he does not know how long he is going to be there, because this information was not availed to him.He was speaking to the media after the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between MOH and IHH Healthcare Malaysia here today.Deputy Public Prosecutor Mohamad Mustaffa P Kunyalam did not object to an adjournment.

Khairy was asked to comment on media reports quoting lawyer Datuk Zaid Ibrahim urging MOH to give Najib the medicine the former prime minister is used to taking for his high blood pressure condition.Shafee also produced a copy of a medical certificate issued by the Malaysian Prisons Department, which certified that Najib is on sick leave from today until tomorrow and also states the HKL hospital ward that he is in.Mohammad Azlan said the first phase of SUKE, a 16.Khairy said he had reviewed the prison regulations in which the prison authorities would inspect the supply of medicines given by a prisoner’s family before they gave it to the prisoner involved.“And in HKL I have been informed by the director that we practised the same procedure.“And now they have restored the medication he was accustomed to, he is beginning to see his blood pressure coming down, but still not satisfactory, not the original blood pressure.So if in prison, he can use his own medicine, we will not deny him (taking the necessary medicines).— Bernama Advertisement.“Today, before he was discharged, as a usual practice of a government hospital, we will provide him with the medicines issued by the hospital pharmacy and the medicines from our hospital in the ministry are generic medicine,” he said.Asked by the judge if Najib’s current condition was due to a change of medication, Shafee noted that Najib also has a history of having stomach ulcers.28bil from 1MDB funds and 21 charges of money laundering involving the same amount.

Yesterday, Khairy announced that Najib who was warded in HKL on Monday was stable and the former prime minister would continue to receive treatment from the hospital.Earlier, Khairy said the MoU signed today is a historic agreement as it had never been made on such a large scale involving 500 cancer patients from government hospitals selected to receive treatment at private hospitals using private facilities.Shafee said Najib could have developed a stroke at that time, but that he went back to normal after receiving a transfusion of five litres of blood.“This programme is fully sponsored by IHH and we will see if the programme is successful and if we want to extend the programme, we can discuss later whether we need to pay a bit or whether there are elements of sponsorship and so on.“This is a very effective measure to introduce the latest treatment and technology to specialists from the ministry and to the cancer patients treated at Health Ministry facilities,” he said.I think for that reason he is being tested to ensure that the blood pressure has got nothing to do with that, but perhaps a mere confusion of medicine.Meanwhile, IHH Healthcare Berhad (IHH) through its wholly-owned subsidiary Pantai Medical Centre Sdn Bhd (IHH Healthcare Malaysia) in a statement said the MoU signed today is to extend the care and treatment of cancer patients in Malaysia through its network comprising Pantai Hospitals, Gleneagles Hospitals and Prince Court Medical Centre.

It mentioned that IHH Healthcare Malaysia will fully sponsor radiotherapy and radiosurgery for 500 cancer patients undergoing treatments at government hospitals, with these patients, identified and referred by Health Ministry and their designated specialists, will receive treatment across seven of IHH Healthcare Malaysia’s hospitals that are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to treat cancer.Asked by the judge if the change in medicine could cause adverse effects, Shafee said this was possible: “It can, that is perhaps, in view of the fact there is no actual bleeding, that is the only tenable reason that can be provided, but they are testing to find out whether there are any other reasons.— Bernama Advertisement.
