DAP PERAK PRESS STATEMENT
Perak DAP State Secretary Nga Kor Ming today filed a defamation suit against blogger sekupangdua, whose true identity is Ahmad Sofian Yahya at Ipoh High Court today.
In his suit against Ahmad Sofian, Nga claims RM 10 Millio general damages, exemplary damages, aggravated damages and an order of injunction against further publication of defamatory words.
Nga, who is also the Member of Parliament for Taiping and State Assemblymen for Pantai Remis filed the suit at the Ipoh High Court registry through his solicitor, Messr Leong & Tan, while accompanied by his lawyers Leong Cheok Keng, Augustine Anthony and Nga Hock Cheh. Other prominent Perak PR Leaders including Dato Seri Mohd Nizar Bin Jamaluddin, Dato Ngeh Koo Ham, YB V Sivakumar, YB Zainuddin Bin Abdul Latif, YB Wong Kah Woh, YB A Sivasubramaniam, YB Ong Boon Piow, YB Lim Pek Har were also present to show their support and solidarity with Nga.
In his statement of claim, Nga claims that the blogger in his posting meant for public viewing had posted numerous articles which contain defamatory remarks namely calling Nga as” A Big Robber of Perak”. The general public may now understand such words as meaning that Nga is a “corrupt person who had abused his power whilst as a Perak state EXCO and is unfit to hold any public office”
These defamatory words are aimed at undermining Nga’s integrity and calculated to lower his public image as a prominent leader.
DAP Perak stresses that MBI’s award of tailoring contract is done by the council’s tender board by way of open tender. The subject matter is only for 24 lounge suit for MBI councilors at the price of RM600 each and the total price is RM14,400.00.
That at all material time, Nga was not a member of the tender board, neither was he involved in the decision making process when the board members made the decision at their meeting. It is stressed that Nga was never informed of the meeting date and the decisions made during the meeting at all material times.
As such, the words published by the Defendant is not only libelous, but malicious with clear intention to undermine Nga’s integrity.
It now raises serious questions that by his own admission, the blogger visited The Perak Menteri Besar’s office before lodging a report with the MACC.
Speculation is rife that the 13th general election will be held very soon and the sudden and intense publications of these defamatory words of events that happened in 2008 raises curious questions, DAP Perak believes the publication of these defamatory words that is calculated to tarnish Nga’s outstanding and impeccable public image is politically motivated and is aimed at destroying his political career.
As a young high achiever, Nga is the recipient of TOP 10 Outstanding Youth Malaysian Award(TOYM) in 2007 and he is legal adviser to many Non Governmental Organisations and corporation.
DAP Perak condemns all forms of gutter politics that engages in character assassination that proliferate the spread of lies and falsehood.
DAP Perak also expresses full confidence in Nga’s leadership and integrity, the party vows to stand by him in his quest to clear his name and reputation.
