KUALA LUMPUR – The Kelantan state government has not receive any official information on the allegations that the Sultan of Kelantan Sultan Muhammad V has divorced his Russian wife, Rihana Oksana Gorbatenko.
According to its Deputy Menteri Besar, Datuk Mohd Amar Abdullah, the state government also does not wish to further pursue information on that matter.
He however, questioned the motive of several newspapers which published the divorce on their front page.
“I am surprised and at the same time, worried when certain media published the issue on the Kelantan Sultan’s divorce on their front page. They could have hidden agenda,” he said when asked by the media in Kota Bharu yesterday.
According to Mohd Amar, as being reported in the official media of PAS, Harakahdaily.net, the Sultan is akin to our parents, who needs to be respected as how the people respect their Prime Minister.
He said, the state government does not agree with the report on newspapers and the media should have respected the Sultan.
He also said that marriage and divorce are part of life and it does not need to be made into the main news.
“You need to refer to the palace on any issues regarding to the palace,” he said. -MalaysiaGazette
