KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 1 — Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz said today he does not see any wrong in his son’s alleged use of a car belonging to Michael Chia, pointing out that Nedim’s relationship with the Sabah timber trader has no connection to his integrity as a Cabinet minister.
He told reporters that he does not police Nedim’s every movement as the latter is an adult, adding that if his son was indeed using Chia’s car, it was a personal arrangement between him and Chia.
“I don’t sleep with my son. I am not gay (homosexual). My son is not my wife, my son is not my lover. What he does, he doesn’t tell me.
“That is between my son and Michael Chia. If he (Chia) wants to give [Nedim] a Hummer or a Ferarri, it is Michael Chia’s business... its not like he (Chia) is giving it to me... and I am the minister, not my son,” Nazri told reporters when approached in Parliament today.
Nazri was responding to PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli who had earlier accused him of conflict of interest for allegedly defending Chia when his son, Nedim, has been using a luxury vehicle registered to Chia’s name.
