KUALA LUMPUR - Kelantan Sultan Ismail Petra has again sought to distance the palace from the marital dispute involving his son, Muhammad Fakhry Petra, and Indonesian model Manohara Odelia Pinot, reported Malaysiakini.

The Sultan's office issued a statement yesterday, saying that comments made by the couple should be regarded as "personal matters".

"Therefore, the Sultan should not, and should never, be implicated in this matter," Kelantan palace official Nik Mahmud Nik Jaffar was quoted as saying in the statement.

He was referring to a police report lodged by the prince on June 11 against his wife and his mother-in-law, Daisy Fajarina.

After fleeing from Singapore on May 31, Ms Manohara had alleged that she had been abused by the prince.

Nik Mahmud said that the palace will leave it to the police to carry out a fair investigation into the matter.

The palace also said that the Sultan is still currently undergoing treatment in a hospital in Singapore.
