About Jaimin Samitah

Jaimin Samitah died at around 4pm on Aug 9, 2021. He was an officer who accompanied Deputy Tourism, Arts and Culture (Motac) Minister Guandee Kohoi during the special Dewan Rakyat sitting in July 2021. The deputy minister’s principal private secretary Ardino Diris said Jaimin was part of Guandee's entourage from July 26 to 29 2021. He initially tested negative when Parliament was locked down on July 29, 2021 for a sudden round of Covid-19 tests. Jaimin, who was fully vaccinated, started developing symptoms afterwards and tested positive four days later. Ardino suspected that Jaimin had contracted the virus while in Parliament grounds but was unclear if the latter was classified as part of the Parliament Covid-19 cluster.

We will always remember you
