Stop spreading allegations of my involvement in Pasir Gudang chemical dumping incident, warns Johor Sultan

PASIR GUDANG: Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar has expressed his annoyance towards certain quarters claiming that a factory allegedly involved in the chemical dumping incident in Sungai Kim Kim here purportedly belonged to His Majesty.

His Majesty reminded such quarters of not trying to distract the rakyat's focus on the weaknesses of those that should have carried out their duties, instead they should focus on solving the matter.

"It has come to my knowledge that there are certain quarters that tried to spread accusations of my involvement in the business side of a factory which caused the pollution here.

"I would like to remind everyone to stop politicising this issue and please bring concrete evidence of my involvement as I am never afraid and will not back down from accusations that cast a bad image on the Johor Royal Institution," he added.

Sultan Ibrahim said this in a statement posted on his official Facebook page here on Sunday (March 17).
