Hotel Seri Malaysia Ipoh cancelled an event which was supposed to be attended by PKR deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali because it feared a political event could tarnish its reputation, said the chairperson of the hotel chain's board of directors Aziz Sheikh Fadzir.

However, Aziz stressed the decision was made by the hotel's management without interference from the board.

"The Hotel Seri Malaysia Ipoh management decided on its own about the cancellation after finding out at the last minute that Azmin Ali would be attending and was worried that if the programme was a political ceramah, it would embroil the hotel in a controversy and tarnish its name.

"Therefore, on behalf on the Hotel Seri Malaysia network, I would like to express regret and apologise over the misunderstanding that happened between the Hotel Seri Malaysia Ipoh management and the organiser of the event," he told Malaysiakini...
