PAS Initiates Lawsuit Against Sarawak Report


PAS has sent a letter of demand to Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle Brown in the United Kingdom to retract a report claiming the Islamist party had received RM90 million from Umno.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 16 — PAS has sent a letter of demand to Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle Brown in the United Kingdom to retract a report claiming the Islamist party had received RM90 million from Umno.


Quoting the party’s secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan, PAS mouthpiece Harakah Daily today reported that the notice will take effect from December 13 for seven days and listed three demands.


“The three demands are: one, to urge Sarawak Report to retract the article; two, to publish an apology or retraction of all allegations; three, to seek the undertaking of Sarawak Report to avoid publishing fake accusations in time to come,” the report said.


Takiyuddin reportedly said PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and the party itself were parties named in the notice sent to Brown over the whistleblower site’s August 6 article.


He said last August that PAS will file a civil suit against Sarawak Report in an English court.
