He also said they had had no personal contact, but Mr Zaharie was a follower of his Twitter account.

On Sunday, his party Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) dismissed a British tabloid report which claimed Mr Zaharie is a “political fanatic”.

PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said the Daily Mail report was “wild allegations” and the paper “is a sensationalist tabloid known for cooking up stories.”
