She left her Cabinet post this year after her senatorship was not renewed by Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s administration. KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil told the High Court today that she stepped down as minister for women, family and community development because she did not want to be a burden to the government and her family.
The Wanita Umno chief was testifying during cross-examination by defence lawyer Ranjit Singh in her defamation suit against PKR’s Rafizi Ramli and Zuraida Kamaruddin over their statements in relation to the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal.
"...I did not want to burden the government with my own, with what has happened to me and my family. I wanted to spend some time in search of the truth," Shahrizat said.
