PUTRAJAYA: The last sultan of Malacca was Sultan Mansor Shah and no one has a right to claim the throne, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
He said the arrest earlier Tuesday of a man claiming to be the Malacca Sultan was carried out in accordance with the law.
He said it was not right for anyone to claim to be the sultan based on the Undang-Undang Tubuh Negeri or the Federal Constitution.
“The last Sultan (of Malacca) was Sultan Mansor Syah..that is history. No one can claim the throne.
"We should let the police investigate further,” Ahmad Zahid told a press conference after launching the Police football team here.
Describing the claim as preposterous, he said the individual has been brought to justice.
State deputy CPO Datuk Shah Gzali Khan Shahadat said the man was being investigated under the Sedition Act.
He said the man was picked up at 10.50am on Tuesday while travelling to Pulau Besar to attend what is believed to be a thanksgiving function relating to the so-called revival of the Malacca sultanate.
