KUANTAN, Jan 23 (Bernama) -- Pahang has declared three days of mourning from Saturday as a mark of respect for Sultan Iskandar Ibni Almarhum Sultan Ismail of Johor, who died yesterday.
Pahang State Secretary Datuk Muhammad Safian Ismail said all government departments and government agencies were discouraged from organising any activities that had elements of fun or entertainment during the period while the state flag is to be flown at half mast.
"The directive has been disseminated to the heads of departments concerned via the short-messaging service. The private sector is also encouraged to follow suit," he told Bernama here.
