“Regarding the issue involving me today (viral video of vaping), I admit it was my mistake. Once again I apologise to the honourable House and all Malaysians. I promise not to repeat the mistake.
“I have always maintained that no one is above the law. The Ministry of Health has compounded me and I will pay the fine. Thank you all for your comment and advice,“ he said on his Facebook tonight.
Hishammuddin had made a similar apology on his Twitter account earlier.
