The Terengganu Sultanah and “The Sarawak Report: The Inside Story of the 1MDB Expose”…

18 September 2018

PAS are making a loud protest over the mention in the book The Sarawak Report that JL had boasted that socialising with the Terengganu Royal family had assisted in him netting the role of advisor to the Terengganu Investment Authority before it was turned into 1MDB.

They assert it is an insult to suggest that the Sultanah was on the board or involved in the setting up of the TIA (which the book does not).

However, PAS ought to be careful what they say, since the SISTER of the Sultan was a director on the Board of TIA. If the Sultanah claims that it is wrong to suggest she was one of the Terengganu Royals friendly with Jho Low, then the sister of the sulltan clearly was associated since she was also on the board of Loh and Loh Corporation after it was absorbed by UBG which was by then half owned by Jho Low.

Moreover, it was Dato Aziz Akhir, the Tengku Rahimah’s husband who was the other official advisor, together with Jho Low, to the board of TIA. He had been involved for some time in business with Jho Low.

There is no question that The Sultan of Terengganu himself held an important position as Chairman of the advisory board of TIA and he was publicised as being the first person to suggest the setting up of the fund to the Menteri Besar of the state.

The Sarawak Report made no suggestion of any impropriety on the part of any of the Terengganu royal family, either for socialising and doing business with Jho Low at that time or for being extremely involved in TIA, which they were.

PAS, on the other hand, has now issued various statements suggesting they believe there would have been some impropriety for the royal family to have been involved. They ought to think before they denounce.

‘Terengganu sultanah was never involved in TIA’

Bernama  |  Published:  |  Modified:

The Terengganu Royal Council of Regency said the statement in the book entitled “The Sarawak Report: The Inside Story of the 1MDB Expose” which linked the Terengganu sultanah with the issue was not true at all.

The council vehemently denied the statement on the third page of the book which reads: “Jho was also friendly with a key player in Terengganu, the wife of the Sultan, whose acquiescence was needed to set up the fund and he later cited her support as having been crucial to his obtaining the advisory position.”

KUALA LUMPUR: The Sultanah of Terengganu, Sultanah Nur Zahirah, has never been directly or indirectly involved in any government administrative affairs and in particular the establishment of the Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA).

Terengganu Royal Council of Regency said the statement in the book, entitled “The Sarawak Report: The Inside Story of the 1MDB Expose”, which linked the Terengganu Sultanah with the issue, was not true at all.

The council vehemently denies the statement in the third page of the book, which reads: “Jho was also friendly with a key player in Terengganu, the wife of the sultan, whose acquiescence was needed to set up the fund and he later cited her support as having been crucial to his obtaining the advisory position.”

“The sultanah has never at any time known or has any relationship with the ‘Jho’ mentioned in the book,” it said in a statement today.

Therefore, it said the writer of the book should take appropriate measures to rectify the fact and apologise to the Terengganu sultanah for making the irresponsible statement.
