Perak MB To Seek Audience With Sultan To Apologize Over His Action In Ordering The Transfer Of Perak Islamic Affairs Department Director

IPOH, May 3 (Bernama) -- Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin will seek an audience with the Sultan of Perak Sultan Azlan Shah soon to apologise over his action in ordering the transfer of the state Religious Department (JAIP) director.

"I fully respect and will always humbly abide by whatever decisions by the Sultan of Perak. I will seek an audience with His Royal Highness to hand over my letter of apology as soon as possible," he said in a statement issued to Bernama here today.

Yesterday, the Sultan directed Mohammad Nizar to withdraw the transfer order issued to Datuk Jamry Sury on Tuesday and to reinstate him as the state Religious Department director.

A statement on the matter was issued by the Sultan's private secretary Datuk Abd Rahim Mohamad Nor, which also directed Mohammad Nizar to have an audience with the Raja Muda Raja Dr Nazrin Shah to explain the transfer.

It also stated that in the event that Jamry had breached any rules or committed any offence as regards the administration, the state government is required to submit the matter formally to the Sultan for him to make a decision on the necessary legal process before any final decision is made.

Jamry, who has been the state Religious department director since 2004, was issued with a 24-hour transfer order by the Pakatan Rakyat government on April 29 for allegedly refusing to cooperate with the government.

Mohammad Nizar had played down Jamry's transfer, saying it was a normal transfer of a state government officer.

Sultan has ‘no jurisdiction on transfer’ thestar
PENANG: Perak Sultan Azlan Shah has no jurisdiction over the transfer of Datuk Jamry Sury from the Perak Religious Department, Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh said.
“The constitution of Perak clearly provides that the Rulers must act on executive advice.
“Sultan Azlan Shah did not have any say, as the Ruler of Perak, in the decision made by the state government and, by law, the palace cannot order the state government to reinstate Jamry,” Karpal Singh said, citing the case of the Federal Territory Education Director and Others vs Loot Ting Yee which was decided in the Federal Court in 1982.

IPOH, May 5 (Bernama) -- Datuk Jamry Sury, whose immediate transfer out last week was ordered by the Perak Menteri Besar, has been reinstated as the State Islamic Religious Affairs Department (Jaip) director.

State Secretary Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Hashim said Jamry was expected to receive his re-appointment letter Monday.

"I have not signed the letter yet but it will be given to him Monday. He (Jamry) will assume his previous post (as Jaip director)," said Abdul Rahman who declined to elaborate as he regarded the case closed.
