Johor denies issuing ‘Bangsa Johor’ identity cards
JOHOR BAHRU - The Johor government has denied having issued identity cards for “Bangsa Johor”.
State secretary Azmi Rohani said so far none of the state government departments or agencies had issued such a card.
“The use of Johor’s identity for such purposes without referring to the state secretary’s office is prohibited,” he said in a statement yesterday evening in response to a man’s tweet advising Johoreans how to obtain the purported new card.
The picture of the card, which was also made viral in several postings in social media, featured a Malaysian identity card number, with a second line of numbers underneath it showing the “Bangsa Johor” identity number.
In addition, the card was also claimed to double up as a debit card to make purchases.
At the back of the card, it showed the address of the cardholder and the name of the person’s next of kin, including a statement that the card was for verification of Bangsa Johor. - FMT
