Its president, Syed Idrus Syed Baharom, said the council was also disappointed with the politician for not making a formal apology to Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah.

“Yang di-Pertuan Agong is the ruler of the country and not the country’s administrator, so why should (he) dragged His Majesty into these political issues.

“If (he) wants to do anything (he) should investigate first because it involves the dignity of the Agong, so now Nawawi needs to officially asked for His Majesty’s forgiveness and not through the media,” he told a press conference at his residence in Anak Bukit here.

Syed Idrus also gave a stern warning to all parties not to drag the Agong into any political issues which could degrade the royal institution.

Recently, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said Nawawi would be called in to have his statement recorded following his Facebook post which linked the Agong with the United States’ Department of Justice (DoJ) lawsuit.

However, Nawawi had lodged a police report on Friday refuting the claim and said his statement had been misinterpreted.
