Labels: ,
KUALA LUMPUR -  Malaysia Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor are suing Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice president Mohd Rafizi Ramli(above photo) and an online news portal owner for allegedly defaming them over a speech made in relation to the removal of oil subsidies.
They said that Mohd Rafizi had delivered a slanderous speech against them at a forum in Bandar Tun Razak on Nov 22 last year on issues relating to oil subsidies.
Najib,  said that the PKR secretary-general had uttered offending words in respect of his office, while Rosmah said his words implied she had committed a criminal act.
They said that the recording of the speech was uploaded by Chan Chee Kong onto Media Rakyat's website, YouTube channel, and Facebook page.
Chan is the sole proprietor of MR Multimedia, the owner of online news portal Mediarakyat.
When contacted, the couple's lead counsel Datuk Mohd Hafarizam Harun said his clients filed the civil suit to vindicate them from the vilification and vicious attacks of late by certain Opposition leaders.
"Whilst my clients accept constructive criticism in politics and issues, defamatory remarks are not acceptable. Let the court decide," said Mohd Hafarizam. 
In the statement of claim, they are seeking general damages, aggravated and exemplary, for slander and libel.
