MALACCA: The International Court of Justice has confirmed that a certificate from it recognising Noor Jan Tuah as the Sultan of Malacca is fake, said Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron.
He said the office of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Melaka received a letter to this effect from the ICJ last September.
"Noor Jan's claims that he is the Sultan of Malacca are outright lies," he told reporters after chairing the state executive council meeting at Seri Negeri here on Wednesday.
Recently, Idris had received a letter from Noor Jan in which the latter demanded that he be installed as the Sultan of Malacca claiming that the ICJ had recognised as such,
Noor Jan, 57, however, was detained by police at 10.50am on Tuesday at the Anjung Batu Jetty in Umbai near just before he was to board a ferry to Pulau Besar allegedly to join his "subjects" for a certain ceremony.
On Wednesday, police obtained a four-day remand order on him to facilitate investigations into the matter.
In other developments, Idris said Melaka would go ahead and hand out the 1Malaysia People's Aid (BR1M) 3.0 face-to-face instead of crediting the aid amount directly into the bank accounts of recipients.
He added that 185,000 applicants had registered for the aid in the state and that elected representatives and government officials would be presenting the aid to recipients.
Prior to this, the Federal Goverrnment had announced that the money would be credited into the bank accounts of recipients so that they need not queue up for it.
The aid is to help the people in the lower income brackets to cope with the rising cost of living. - Bernama
