New Straits Times - Malaysia News Online: "Cherie backs out of charity event


Cherie Blair, the lawyer wife of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, has pulled out of a charity event in Malaysia, a Downing Street spokesman said today.
She still plans to deliver a law lecture in Kuala Lumpur on July 25, but will skip a charity event six days later that is part of the gala opening of the Starhill boutique complex.

'Cherie Blair is no longer able to attend the charity event in Malaysia,' the spokesman said.

He added that talks had been under way with Datin Seri Endon Mahmood, the wife of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, on how she and Blair might together 'raise the profile of breast cancer (the subject of the charity event) in Malaysia"
