    Malaysia’s former prime minister Abdullah Badawi has dementia

    ANN/THE STRAITS TIMES – Malaysia’s former prime minister Abdullah Badawi is suffering from dementia and no longer recognises nor remembers his family members, said Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

    Khairy, who is the 82-year-old former United Malays National Organisation (Umno) leader’s son-in-law, said Tun Abdullah started showing signs of cognitive impairment shortly after retiring as Malaysia’s fifth prime minister in 2009 and his condition has progressively worsened since then.
