“When I arrived, I met former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, who was in the cafeteria next to the restaurant.

“I greeted him before my friends arrived. When they (my friends) arrived, I went directly to the aforementioned restaurant for lunch,” he said, adding that he was hurt by the slanderous accusations.

Meanwhile, Ismail Sabri also denied that Barisan General Treasurer Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein was present at the farewell ceremony.

Sinar Harian reported that Ismail Sabri also said that other Umno leaders such as Khairy Jamaluddin were also slandered for going against party chairman Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
