Kadir: Probe Johor royal family

PUCHONG: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s media advisor, Tan Sri Kadir Jasin has called upon the Royal Malaysian Police and the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) to probe into Johor royal family’s Mados Sdn Bhd.

In a Facebook posting earlier in this evening, Kadir took a swipe at the Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, better known as TMJ. The latter has been involved in an open tiff with Dr Mahathir.

Earlier today, Dr Mahathir referred to TMJ as a ‘stupid‘ and ‘little boy’.

Johor PKR had called upon for a truce between Putrajaya and Johor but clearly Kadir has ignored it.

Kadir pointed out that the ‘little boy’ could pose a bigger problem and must be dealt with. He even equated TMJ as the atom bomb that was dropped in Hiroshima.

“Talking isn’t enough,” he said. “Plus, the little boy did say to give our 110%” a reference to a remark by TMJ on Saturday where he challenged those who wanted to “finish off” the royalty to go all out.

TMJ had previously claimed that the Council of Eminent Persons which Kadir was part of was plotting to end the royalty.

“So we ask the new Inspector-General of Police (Abdul Hamid Bador) and the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) to investigate how much taxes Mados Sdn Bhd has paid after doing business” supposedly “for hundreds of years”, Kadir said.

Mados Sdn Bhd was set up by TMJ’s grandfather Sultan Iskandar Sultan Ismail who had frosty relations with Dr Mahathir.

The company’s business interest range from property investment, provision of management services, timber logging and quarry operation.

Its shareholders and board of directors are members of the Johor royal family.
