KUALA TERENGGANU, March 13 (Bernama) – Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister, Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali, has paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Institute of Malaysian Plantation & Commodities (IMPAC) chief executive officer, Mohd Solah Deraman, who passed away on March 11 after an accident on Jalan Muadzam Shah in Pahang.

Accompanied by his wife, Datin Anili Ramli, they spent about 15 minutes today with Mohd Solah’s widow, Hafidah Hanim Othman, 46, and his mother, Esah Mat Amin, 94, and asked after the couple’s six children, aged six to 19.

Mohd Khairuddin contributed some money and necessities to the family, as well as said the ministry will examine how more they can help the family.

He said that one of the ways was to allow the family to continue living at the government quarters in Keratong, Pahang.

“Normally, the family would be required to move out after three months. But in recognition of Mohd Solah’s excellent work record, the family will be allowed to stay till their fourth child has sat for the Primary School Achievement Test (UPSR),” he told Bernama while at Esah’s house in Kampung Surau Haji Mat Zin, Bukit Payong.
