JOHOR BARU: The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, granted an audience to Singapore’s Home Affairs and Law Minister K. Shanmugam at Istana Pasir Pelangi here yesterday in conjunction with Aidilfitri.
A post on the Sultan’s Facebook account said it was the second time a Singaporean minister had paid a courtesy call on the Ruler over the past few days.
