Battle of the Princes

Angela Hager

A feud is brewing between two Malaysian princes.

Tunku Nadzimuddin Tunku Mudzaffar from Negri Sembilan has brought public attention to an alleged attack from a prince from southern Johor state. Tunku Nadzimuddin claims while he was at a nightclub last year, a fight broke out. Later, he was invited back to a hotel room for an apology when he was held at gunpoint and beaten.

Tunku Nadzimuddin went to the police, but held the press conference to show his disappointment that nothing has been done yet. At this time 41 people have made statements to the authorities, but the Johor family has said nothing yet.

In Malaysia's constitutional monarchy, 9 of the 13 states have a royal family, and they rotate the monarchy. It is considered extrememly unusual for members of royal families to criticize one another.
