PETALING JAYA: Former major shareholder of oil and gas services provider Petra Perdana Bhd, Tengku Datuk Ibrahim Petra Tengku Indra Petra is suing Perdana Petroleum Bhd, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) as well as 11 other individuals for exemplary damages of RM50mil and to have an injunction against the parties for assessing and using an email account belonging to him.
The writ of summons also sought general damages for trespass against the plaintiff’s property, costs and other reliefs. Furthermore, the writ is seeking a declaration from the MCMC that it is the multimedia regulator’s duty to accept and investigate the plaintiff’s complaint.
Perdana Petroleum (formerly known as Petra Perdana) said in an announcement to the stock exchange that the company was in the process of appointing a solicitor for the necessary course of action.
Ibrahim, also a co-founder of the company, was ousted from the board of Petra Perdana following a shareholder tussle involving another major shareholder and co-founder, Datuk Henry Kho Poh Eng.
