Dear DYMM Sultan Ibrahim Ibni almarhum Sultan Iskandar .... The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has in its
Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary to the Sultan of Johor. The letter was found on the 54-year emissary who was detained at the Istana Tanjong in Muar for allegedly trying to bribe the Sultan.
In the letter, which the emissary could not pass to the Tuanku on the night of his arrest because he was not allowed an audience with the Sultan by the advisers, Syed Mokhtar states his intention to set up a Foundation in the name and memory of the Sultan's late father.
Syed Mokhtar, a great philanthropist, commits in the letter a contribution of RM5 million a year for five years to the Foundation.
The MACC found RM1.01 million on the emissary on the night of his arrest. The emissary was met at the Istana by two of the Sultan's aides and a businessman from Kota Tinggi. I'm not sure if the three knew about the letter, or if they failed to inform the Sultan of it, for some reasons only known to them.
