1MDB: Langkawi MP seeks King's forgiveness

LANGKAWI, Aug 22 (Bernama) -- Langkawi MP Datuk Nawawi Ahmad today issued an official statement seeking for Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah's forgiveness for his recent remarks allegedly linking His Majesty to 'Malaysian Official 1 (MO1) named in the US Department of Justice lawsuit related to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) issue.

Nawawi said the statement was issued on his own conscience and sense of responsibility without being influenced by any quarters.

"Indeed, I have no intention to link His Majesty to the issue, but it was viralised by certain quarters who misinterpreted everything I said," he said when reading the statement at a press conference here today.

The MP said he truly regretted everything that happened and that His Majesty had nothing to do with 1MDB issue.

"Hence, I take responsibility for it and humbly request His Majesty's acceptance of my apology if the issue had hurt the feelings of His Majesty," he said.

Nawawi also promised to be more careful in making any comments on social media in the future and not to write anything involving the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

He also apologised to the Kedah Royal Family Council and the Malaysian people for any confusion caused.

"All this confusion is caused by me, alone, and did not involve anyone else either in the government, party, or other quarters. So, I hope this issue stops here," he added.
