Dato’ Wira Ng Chun Hau has filed a defamation lawsuit in the Kuala Lumpur High Court against Caely Holdings Berhad and its Board of Directors over defamatory statements in a press release issued on 6 October 2022.
In the press release Caely made several wrongful and baseless accusations which are defamatory against Ng. The publication of the defamatory statements was made maliciously with an ill motive to divert the attention of the public and authorities from the true wrongdoers to Ng.
The publication of the defamatory statements in the press release and the republication of the defamatory statements by the various news media have caused serious harm to the reputation of Ng in the corporate world and public at large causing Ng to suffer considerable distress and embarrassment.
In such circumstances, Ng is seeking damages for libel with aggravated and exemplary damages against Caely and its Board of Directors. Ng shall also be applying for an injunction to retrain Caely and its Board of Directors from further publishing the defamatory statements.
