KOTA KINABALU, Oct 2 — The late Batu Sapi Member of Parliament Datuk Liew Vui Keong will be buried at the Nirvana Memorial Park in Telipok here on Monday.

According to his younger brother, Peter, Liew’s body would be taken to a church for funeral service before the burial.

“We are trying to speed up the (funeral) arrangements,” he told reporters at Liew’s residence here today.

Peter said his brother had been receiving treatment at a private hospital here since Sept 9, and he was informed of his death at 11.50am today.

He said Liew had told him that he had suffered cramps on his left thigh after driving around to several places for five days.

Peter said Liew, a former federal minister, was a cheerful and helpful person and that his death was a big loss to the family. — Bernama
