PAS appoints UK lawyer to sue Sarawak Report

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 9:02 PM

Takiyuddin-Hassan_sarawak-report_law_600PAS has appointed a lawyer in the United Kingdom to initiate a lawsuit against Sarawak Report for claiming that the party leadersip had received RM90 million from Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Party Secretary-General Takiyuddin Hassan said the lawyer was appointed last month and was preparing the legal documents.

“We will send a letter of demand to the Sarawak Report editor first before deciding on the next course of action,” he told FMT.

Before deciding to file a suit, an aggrieved party will send a notice to the publisher, seeking the retraction of the defamatory statement, an apology and monetary compensation, failing which a suit will be filed in court.

Takiyuddin said PAS would send a lawyer from Malaysia to liaise with the counsel in the UK when the legal process begins.

Sarawak Report had alleged in an article on Aug 6 that RM90 million was “reckoned” to have entered into the accounts of top PAS leaders.

The money transacted, it said, was one of Najib’s attempts to “woo” the PAS leadership into supporting Barisan Nasional and Umno.

The allegation was criticised by PAS leaders, including its deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man who had reportedly said PAS would take legal action against the portal for its ill-intentioned report to tarnish the party’s reputation as well as its Islamic policies.

  1. PAS is engaged to be married to Umno Baru. Right thinking Malays should not waste their votes on PAS for the same reasons as they would not vote Umno Baru. Corruption and embezzlement have brought our nation down the gutter. In Malaysia today the aide to the wife of MO1 has been talking louder and issuing more press statements than the PM . None of the former PM’s wife has an aide and this highly corrupted PM ‘s wife has been acting like an elected representative.
