King grants audience to KK Mart founder, does not want socks issue prolonged


PETALING JAYA: His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia, consented to grant an audience to Datuk Seri Chai Kee Kan, the owner of KK Mart, which was recently involved in the controversial socks issue.

During the 15-minute audience on Wednesday (April 3), Chai sought His Majesty's forgiveness and apologised to the King and all Muslims over the socks issue.

His Majesty decreed that all parties, including KK Mart, must be more careful with the products they sold, especially imported goods to avoid any recurrences of the issue.
