In a statement released at 5pm Thursday, the state government confirmed that it received Abd Latif's resignation letter.
"I, on behalf of the Johor state government, respect his decision. The decision is certainly made based on an assessment of the best outcome for all parties.
"I hope that the justice process will take place in accordance with the provisions of the law," said Khaled.
Khaled also thanked Abd Latif for services rendered during the course of his employment with the state government.
The Johor state government statement came shortly after a statement was issued by Abd Latif's lawyer announcing the latter's resignation.
The resignation letter announced that the former Johor Housing and Local Government Committee chairman has relinquished all positions in the state government. Abd Latif was charged at the Johor Baru Sessions Court on Wednesday with 33 counts of graft over a housing and land scandal in the state involving some RM30mil.
