Chua resigns after sex scandal

Taken from the Star....

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has tendered his resignation as Health Minister, MCA vice-president, Johor MCA chief and Labis MP.

He announced this at a press conference Wednesday here.

The announcement came a day after he held a press conference in Labis, Johor, where he admitted to being the man in the sex DVDs circulating in Johor.

The two DVDs which had been available in Muar and other towns in Johor show Dr Chua having sex with a woman whom he described as a “personal friend” at Tuesday’s press conference.

“I have seen Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting and I have personally apologised to them,” said Dr Chua on Tuesday, reading from a one-page statement.

On Tuesday Dr Chua had said he would not be resigning from his posts.

“I leave it to party members, leaders and the Malaysian public to be the judge. It's not for me to speculate.”

The 60-year-old doctor sold his medical practice in 1990 to go into politics.

He is married to Datin Seri Wong Sek Hin. The couple has three children.
