KOTA KINABALU, Oct 5 — Batu Sapi MP Datuk Liew Vui Keong, better known as VK Liew, was buried today at the Nirwana Memorial Park in Telipok today.

The funeral service at his home in Taman Antarabangsa was attended by family and friends but was livestreamed through his Batu Sapi constituency Facebook page.

Earlier, members of the public were asked not to attend the service and burial given the current rise in Covid-19 cases in the state.

A Catholic priest presided over the service for the Parti Warisan leader and former federal law minister.

The cortege left for the cemetery at about 2.30pm and was delayed along the way because of the heavy rain.
