Johor prince: Don't make statements that you don't know

PETALING JAYA - The Johor Crown Prince has chided an Umno supreme council member, saying that those not in the know should not make statements on the relationship between the Prime Minister and the Johor Sultan.

"With regards of a statement made by an Umno supreme council member Datuk Dr Mohd Puad Zakashi that says there's no problems between the Johor Ruler and the Prime Minister; it is my opinion that one should not make statements without being aware of the present situation," Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim said in the latest post on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page on Sunday.

"Do not make any speculations whether there's a problem or not between His Majesty and the Prime Minister, as only H.M. The Sultan and I know the whole story of the said matter, and as such, for the time being, only we need to know and there's no reason for it to be made public," he said.

On Saturday, Puad said there was no problem between Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said certain quarters had circulated info on social media that the Sultan and Najib were not on good terms.

According to Puad, Najib had told him that there was no misunderstanding between the two.
