Last week, Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Ismail Idris ibni Sultan Ibrahim, held a discussion with Datuk Seri Rina Harun regarding the widely-reported Bella’s abuse case. As a result, the Johor royalty came up with a few suggestions for the government to ensure that similar cases won’t happen again in the future. However, much to his and his wife’s dismay, there are still a few who decided to stay silent without taking any action.
In a more recent update, TMJ recently met up with his team of lawyers as well as a few activists who are currently fighting for the #JusticeForBella movement. One of the activists, Aliff Ahmad, took to his Facebook to share what went down during the meeting. It was also posted on Jabatan Netizen Negara’s Instagram page.
As revealed by the Facebook user, the meeting session took place in a very “casual” manner. Aliff also praised TMJ for his kindness. At the same time, he also pointed out on how TMJ was also baffled by the ongoing case. According to him, TMJ was “curious” on who is Siti Bainun, and why she required 10 lawyers to defend herself against the charges brought by a teenager with special needs.
TMJ himself also commented on Jabatan Netizen Negara’s IG regarding the matter. He responded in the replies section, “Even I don’t have 10 lawyers representing me. It’s weird. Anyway, this is just the beginning. The real hero (in this case) is Bella, and I will help her with all my power. I will also ensure that every child in the country is protected. The Malaysian government must amend the law immediately to protect children.”
Just when we thought it ended there, it appears that the 38-year-old prince has more to say about the alleged abuse case. “Where did all the so-called pro-human rights politicians go? Why are they being so quiet? Do they have any connection with the Rumah Bonda? Are some of these (welfare) houses being used by certain parties for money laundering and human trafficking? Both sides just went silent,” TMJ wrote in an IG Story post.
His wife, Che’ Puan Khaleeda Bustamam also appeared to echo the same sentiment as the Crown Prince. She took to her Instagram to share the same post uploaded by her husband, calling for politicians to break their silence about the matter. Read their posts here.
Up till this day, the trial is still on-going, and the authorities are also actively investigating the alleged abuse case.
