KUALA LUMPUR

Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar outbid others with a hefty RM748,000 to capture the much desired number plate “W1N”.

The New Straits Times reported that the ruler believed the money spent would be channelled back to the people.

“I do not mind paying for the plate number because I know that the amount paid will go back to the rakyat.

“The people will benefit from it. So, the amount paid is small compared with the benefits that the people will reap,” he said.

Sultan Ibrahim said he placed a bid for the number through the Road Transport Department’s (JPJ) tender process for new registrations, just like everyone else.

“”I am not the type who skips procedures to get things my way. It is the ‘Johor-style’ to pay for what we want because everyone should have a fair chance and like the saying goes  — only the best man wins,” he was reported as saying by NST.

According to the newspaper, the state ruler is using the “W1N” number plate on his local car, a Proton Suprima S.

In May last year, Sultan Ibrahim had won the tender for WWW 1.

“Don’t be panicky, the amendment is a process and it had been planned for so long even before the issues on 1MDB and the Sarawak Report had cropped up. The reason… today the abuse of the internet and social media could be due to the Sarawak Report, tomorrow there may be other blogs whose contents are sometimes wholly accepted by the readers.”

Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak stating that the proposed amendments to the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 and Communications and Multimedia Commission Act 1998 are not intended to curb the freedom of the people to use the social media and Internet.
