Police probe Johor's days off leakage
State police chief Datuk Mokhtar Shariff said three reports had been lodged over the leakage of a document proposing a change in the state's weekly days off.

JOHOR BARU - State police chief Datuk Mokhtar Shariff said three reports had been lodged over the leakage of a document proposing a change in the state's weekly days off.

He said the matter would be investigated under the Official Secrets Act.

Johor Royal Court Council secretary Datuk Abdul Rahim Ramli, said he was informed that state secretary Datuk Obet Tawil had lodged a police report after the document on the proposed changes to working days -- Friday and Saturday instead of Saturday and Sunday -- went viral on the social media.

Rahim said the information on the changes did not come from the Johor palace or the Johor Royal Court.

He also said there were no Facebook pages or social media groups representing the two institutions.

Many people, particularly Johoreans, had claimed Johor ruler, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, had endorsed the new working days to be made effective starting January via Facebook and the cellular communication network, WhatsApp.

Rahim said Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khalid Nordin had said the changes to the state's working days were being deliberated on as they were gathering feedback from all parties concerned.

"Any decision to change the state's official working days will be made by the state administration."

Recently, Khaled had refused to comment on speculation that the weekly days off would be Friday and Saturday. He had said the decision lay solely in the hands of the Johor sultan.
