KOTA BARU: The Kelantan Palace has denied claims made by an online portal alleging that Chief Justice Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat and her husband are banned from the royal institution.
Comptroller of the Kelantan Royal Household, Datuk Nik Mohd Shafriman Nik Hassan, said on Friday (Aug 26) that the statement made by the portal was baseless and untrue.
“There has never been such a ban issued by the Kelantan Palace as alleged.
“The Kelantan Palace takes such defamatory statements seriously and urges all media practitioners to refer to the Palace to verify such news before publishing to avoid causing confusion,” he said in a statement Friday.
Nik Mohd Shafriman said the palace will consider taking legal action against the portal if the defamation continues. – Bernama
