Former Perak MB wants an apology from the media organisations for misrepresenting his remarks on Johor Sultan's purchase of WWW 1 number plate.
The former Perak Menteri Besar wants both the media organisations to apologise for misrepresenting his statements on twitter regarding Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar’s purchase of the WWW 1 number plate for RM520 000.
He filed two separate police reports against them and later sent two separate letters of demands seeking an unconditional apology within the next seven days.
Should the two organisations fail to issue an apology, the PAS man will not hesitate to initiate legal action against them.
“Based on that reports carried by the organisations, there have been numerous police report against me,” he told reporters in parliament today.
He was refering to a news report in Utusan published on May 31 and TV3 news which carried another one a day earlier.
Nizar came under fire from many quarters, including the Sultan for his tweet.
Nizar had said: “RM520k boleh dibelanjakan membantu rakyat melayu Johor yg masih ramai miskin serta memerlukan bantuan utk kprluan hidup, bina 20 rumah Program Pembangunan Rakyat Termiskin (PPRT)!” (RM520,000 can be spent on poor Malays in Johor who need help to survive, and build 20 PPRT homes!)”.
He stressed today that at no point did he say that public fund was used to fund the purchase for the vehicle registration number plate.
Nizar has sought an audience with Sultan Ibrahim to explain himself but did not get a response from the Johor royalty.
