Writ of Summons and Statement of Claim filed against Malik Aljunied
Updated: Sep 20, 2019
8 days ago (19 August 2019) my lawyers issued a Letter of Demand for Defamation to Malik Aljunied, an employee of Singapore National Olympic Council and Executive Director of Singapore Athletics, for the following Facebook post he put up: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2330747103667593&id=157864337622558
Malik was requested to do 3 things, namely: 1) A signed written undertaking to not publish any more statements which are defamatory in nature.
2) Make compensation for damages (to be agreed upon)
3) Issue a public apology through The Straits Times for his actions.
Disappointingly, Malik did not comply with my solicitors' demands. I have no choice but to stand by my words and file a Statement of Claim against Malik.
Thanks once again for your support, and Happy Running!
