Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz has debunked an image of a business card, purportedly belonging to his wife, that is being shared on social media.
The origin of the picture is unknown, but several Facebook users took to the social media platform today to share it and of course, their utter disbelief as well. “Can anyone use the official Malaysian crest so wantonly?” said one netizen, who shared the post on his personal Facebook profile.
As seen in the screenshot above, the card bears a small picture of her, her name (Datin Seri Haflin S), her “position” (Spouse-Minister of Tourism of Culture Malaysia)”, the address of the ministry’s office in Putrajaya, as well as contact numbers. The public Facebook post has since been shared over 1,200 times, garnering more than 1,900 reactions.
However, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz has since debunked the image. When contacted by MMO, he said, “I checked with her. She didn’t do it and my office did not give permission.” adding that anything that comes from his office using the state emblem will need his permission. More importantly, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz stressed, the said person has to be working there.
Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz also told The Star Online, “She doesn’t work for the ministry. It is fake. There are always people out there who try to get us.”
