[Updated] Received this in the mail. I am not a liar. Tengku Adnan, if you wish to clarify, I am happy to apologise. You see, although I was rather angry at your comments, I’ll give you the right to reply. Does your silence means consent? It’s really not nice that bits and wits about you are circulating the net like this. I want to help you put a stop to this. So, please, help me, clarify. Thank you.

So who is this guy anyway? Dato’ Adnan was born in Malacca on 20th December 1950 at 610h, birth certificate no. 100502. Name at birth was Adnan bin Mansor. On 20th December 1962, Dato’ Adnan was 12 and a proud owner of an IC (IC no. 4079409). However, on 3rd October 1972, Dato’ Adnan had changed his name to Tengku Adnan bin Tengku Mansor. He also changed his dad’s IC name to Tengku Mansor bin Tengku Baba. Claims to be Malacca’s 3rd generation Sultanate heritage.Dato’ Adnan was once Tun M’s Setiausaha Kerja UMNO. Dato’ Adnan, a businessman, was known to be Tan Sri Vincent Tan’s favorite go-to guy for projects. Word on the street is that Dato’ Adnan has 3.5million shares in Berjaya Sports Toto via his SPV, Cimsec Nominees Sdn Bhd. Sports Toto has a total of 681 outlets nationwide and 2 overseas operations, one in Phillipines and the other in Ghana. Once upon a time, Dato’ Adnan, Tan Sri Vincent and Pahang State Govt through an SPV called PASDEC Holding Berhad used to own Bukit Tinggi Resort. After fierce pressure from the public, he relinquished his shares on 23rd May 2003.
So, you’ve got a respectable Prime Minister going all around the world promoting Islam and you’ve got this Minister under him going around screwing things up for PM. Well, one can argue that he was dropped at the last election and was called back to the Cabinet after the reshuffling. Don’t know what the end game is.
Tell if anyone wants to argue about his ‘tengku’ness, notice that officially, his dato’ seri title precedes his tengku title. That tells it all.
