GE15: BN-MCA’s Alor Setar candidate says will sue Kedah MB over allegedly slanderous comments

ALOR SETAR: Tan Chee Hiong will file a defamation suit against Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor for allegedly claiming that his father’s hardware business had gone bankrupt because of him.

The Barisan Nasional-MCA candidate for the Alor Setar seat in the 15th General Election (GE15), said the remarks made by Muhammad Sanusi were fake, unproven and slander.

“He made the statement with bad intentions, trying to tarnish my reputation during the election season and influence voters not to vote for me,” he said at a press conference at the Alor Setar MCA office here on Tuesday (Nov 15).

He said he had the right to sue and will file suit after GE15.

Also present at the press conference was Kedah MCA advisor Tan Sri Chor Chee Heung and Kedah Umno Youth information chief Syed Mohd Johan Rizal Syed Unan Mashri.
