PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad's special media adviser, Datuk A. Kadir Jasin, has called upon the authorities to probe taxes paid by Mados, a company believed to be linked to Johor royalty.

He said the new Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador should reopen some "frozen" and "closed" investigations but did not elaborate.

He also said the Inland Revenue Board should probe Mados.

The company is said to be owned by the Johor royal family.

"The little boy has asked us to do 110 per cent, but I think 50 per cent is enough," Mr Kadir wrote in a Facebook post on Monday (May 6).

His post came after Tun Dr Mahathir said the Crown Prince of Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, is a "little boy who does not know anything".

Mr Kadir also warned that "Little Boy" is like the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945.

"It is very dangerous, although it is small and does not know anything. So we have to do something, not just talk," he said.

On Sunday, Mr Kadir said people are free to hold discussions anywhere in New Malaysia, including to ensure that constitutional monarchs do not "self-destruct".

It is believed that he was responding to a statement by Tunku Ismail, who last Saturday evening alluded that there was a certain "Kadir" plotting to "finish off" the royalty.
