In the FAM exco meeting it is learnt that the ruler of Pahang said "I am disappointed that a paper which was known to have reknown writers, have come to this state. I am disappointed with the writer, editor for twisting the facts. They should have contacted me to get a clearer picture."
It was also learnt that what really angered him was when the Malay Mail used "STUPID" in a photo caption.
"The writer wrote an apology but to me it sounded very scarstic, I did not see any sincerity in that piece at all" said the Sultan.
