PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysia's Tourism and Culture Minister Nazri Aziz has sought forgiveness from the Johor Crown Prince, according to a post on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page.
According to the post, the Johor royal family granted an audience to Datuk Seri Nazri on Thursday (March 15).
It is not known exactly what Nazri is apologising for, but in 2015, the minister had told Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim to stay out of politics.
Nazri had said this in response to a post made by Tunku Ismail on June 2015 criticising Prime Minister Najib Razak for not attending an open dialogue session organised by a non-governmental organisation.
The war of words then continued as Tunku Ismail reminded Nazri that "he is not a God from the heavens who lords above everybody".
Nazri was then investigated under Section 505B of the Penal Code following his remark against Tunku Ismail, which then Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said could cause "fear or alarm to the public".
In the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page, Nazri was seen meeting with Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar.
"Nazri Aziz came to ask the Sultan of Johor's views and suggestions on national governance for the future," it said.
