The Sultan wants action against the fake news bearing his name.

Johor ruler Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar urged the police today to take action against those who spread fake news using his name.

The Johor Sultan expressed his displeasure over a news report that quoted him as telling people to avoid Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM), which he labelled as “fake”.

“Sultan Ibrahim decrees that any statements or news related to him or the Johor royal family will only be issued by the Royal Press Office,” Sultan Ibrahim said in a statement.

The Johor Sultan shared on his Facebook page an image of the article titled ‘Sultan Johor Urged His Nation to Stay Away From PPBM’, which was published by a news portal on April 17, with a “palsu” (fake) chop on it.
