PETALING JAYA: The case between Kelantan prince Tengku Mohamad Fakhry Sultan Ismail Petra and his wife Manohara Odelia Pinot is a personal matter, the Kelantan palace said.
Manohara, a former model, who claimed she was ill-treated, has fled to her home country Indonesia.
The palace said in a statement that it was monitoring the developments, including the allegations made by Manohara.
“We are viewing the matter as a personal crisis between a husband and his wife which must be settled through the law,” said the statement signed by the palace coordinator Datuk Abdul Halim Hamad on Wednesday.
He said he had been directed to clarify that statements made by Mohd Soberi Shafii, a friend of Tengku Fakhry, were his (Mohd Soberi’s) personal view and not an official stand of the palace.
