KUALA LUMPUR: Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar today filed a suit against Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and
Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob for allegedly accusing her of being a traitor to the country.
Nurul Izzah, who is PKR vice-president, filed the suit at the Civil High Court registry through the law firm Messrs Daim & Gamany.
She named Khalid and Ismail Sabri as the first and second defendants, respectively, in the suit.
In her statement of claim, Nurul Izzah stated that on Nov 22 this year, Khalid had uttered defamatory words at a press conference at the Bukit Aman Police headquarters.
She claimed that the defamatory words were uttered a few days after the appearance of photographs of her with Jacel Kiram, daughter of Jamalulail Kiram who is said to have ordered or led the invasion of Sabah in 2013.-BERNAMA
