KUALA LUMPUR: The Tengku Temenggong of Kelantan Tengku Mohamad Fakhry Sultan Ismail Petra is contemplating taking legal action against his Indonesian ex-model wife Manohara Odelia Pinot and her mother Daisy Farajina over allegations made against him.
The prince’s lawyer, Mohd Haziq Pillay, told a press conference yesterday that a police report was lodged at the Dang Wangi Police Headquarters yesterday afternoon.
However, he was tight-lipped about the contents of Tengku Mohamad Fakhry’s report.
“I think it suffices to say that a report has been made and we will let the police investigate the matter.”
Daisy, 44, and Manohara, 17, have been interviewed in various talk shows in Indonesia, repeating allegations of mistreatment that Manohara had suffered at the hands of her husband.
The allegations began last week following news of Manohara’s “escape” from Tengku Mohamad Fakhry, 31, when they were in Singapore to visit his father who was being treated at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital for a heart ailment.
Asked why the report was being lodged in Malaysia and not in Indonesia, Mohd Haziq said “the law provides for that as long as the course of action took place here, then it is only right the police report be made here.”
He added that the prince was “definitely denying all the allegations made against him.”
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Wira Muhammad Sabtu Osman confirmed the police report but declined to comment further.
