Legal letter served for defamatory statements in an online article

A Letter of Demand has been issued on behalf of Bestinet Sdn Bhd (Bestinet or the Company) and Dato’ Sri Mohd Amin Abdul Nor (Dato Sri’ Mohd Amin) to an independent online news portal and two individuals for an online article that appeared on the website of the news portal dated 4 February 2022 containing defamatory statements.

The Letter of Demand noted that the content of the defamatory statements is malicious, untrue and unjustifiable. The defamatory statements are an attack on the integrity and reputation of the Company and Dato Sri’ Mohd Amin, who have been brought into public scandal, ridicule and contempt.

Bestinet and Dato’ Sri Mohd Amin are prepared to withhold civil action if the independent online news portal and the two individuals refrain from the actions as set in the Letter of Demand.

The Company and Dato’ Sri Mohd Amin in the meantime reserve their rights and interest at law.
