SINGAPORE - Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat has posted again on his Facebook page on the eve of Hari Raya.

He thanked well-wishers for their kind words of encouragement as he continues his recovery from a stroke that saw him placed in intensive care.

In his second Facebook post since being discharged from hospital on June 25, Mr Heng wrote: "I keep your words in mind as I do my rehab exercises."

He also extended Hari Raya Aidilfitri greetings to Muslims, wishing them a wonderful time with loved ones as they marked the end of the Ramadan fasting period.

 

Mr Heng is currently on medical leave after he collapsed during a Cabinet meeting on May 12 from a stroke due to an aneurysm, a localised weakening of a blood vessel.

He underwent a successful endovascular coil embolisation - surgery to seal off the aneurysm on the same day of the stroke.
