SUNGAI BULOH: Student Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam says she will sue her physical education teacher for RM5mil.
Her lawyer, Datuk Sankara Nair, said following the letter of formal notice, he informed her that they had a case for a counter action.
“I wrote back that we are suing you for RM5mil for intentionally inflicting emotional distress.
“I sent a letter to their lawyer about this,” he told reporters at Sungai Buloh police headquarters on Friday (August 6th).
Ain Husniza was summoned to the police headquarters on Friday evening to have her statement taken into account during the investigation for intentional insult.
Sankara said he was told that the police were investigating the case under section 504 of the Penal Code for willful insult with intent to cause a breach of public order.
“This is a police report filed over three months ago.
“I will not disclose the name of the person who filed the report against her but I will discuss with my client the possibility of filing a counter report for insulting her modesty,” he added.
It was reported that Ain Husniza had received a letter demanding damages from RM1mil for alleged defamatory comments she allegedly made.
The 17-year-old student wrote about it in an Instagram post on Wednesday (August 4).
According to the letter, Ain Husniza said she had seven days to respond to these claims, one of which was to pay RM1mil for punitive damages.
However, she did not elaborate on what the alleged “defamatory statements” were.
Ain Husniza made headlines earlier this year for exposing the rape jokes of her PE teacher made in the classroom.
In a Facebook post, his father Saiful Nizam Abdul Wahab said the letter, which was delivered at 2 p.m., was intended for Ain Husniza, himself and his wife.
“There are five claims and one of them is to pay RM 1 million in damages. We have received the letter from the law firm Rasshidi Ema & Yung,” he said.
Saiful Nizam also noted that the letter was from the physical education teacher at the school her daughter had previously studied.
