KUALA LUMPUR – Sarawak Report Editor has confirmed that she had received the the defamation lawsuit writ by the President of PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
According to a portal, Clare Rewcastle Brown has confirmed the report and will leave the matter to her attorney.
“They’re in the hands of my attorney. I can’t make any statement at this early stage,” she said in an email.
Clare, who is also the founder of the news portal said, she has received the legal notice last Friday.
The suit is over a Sarawak Report article on August 2016 claiming that PAS leaders have received RM90 million as an effort to draw them into supporting Barisan Nasional and UMNO by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Previously, PAS said that they took some time to take the legal action as they were compiling witnesses in Malaysia to testify in the court. – MalaysiaGazette
