Ain Husniza receives letter of demand seeking RM1mil damages for alleged defamation

PETALING JAYA: Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam has received a letter of demand seeking damages of RM1mil for alleged defamatory remarks she made.

The 17-year-old student wrote about this in an Instagram post on Wednesday (Aug 4).

"Today suddenly during online class I received a letter of demand on 'defamatory statements' I apparently made (sic)," she said.

According to the letter, Ain Husniza said that she had seven days to fulfil these demands, one of which was to pay RM1mil for punitive damages.

However, she did not elaborate what the purported "defamatory statements" were.

"All I ask is for everyone to pray for me that everything will be made easier," she said, also thanking everyone for their support.

Ain Husniza made headlines earlier this year for calling out her physical education teacher's rape jokes made in class.

In a Facebook post, her father Saiful Nizam Abdul Wahab said that the letter, which was delivered at 2pm, was for Ain Husniza, himself and his wife.

"There are five demands and one of them is to pay RM1mil in damages. We received the letter from the law firm of Rasshidi Ema & Yung.

"Following lawyer's advice, we will not comment further on this for now.

"We will get more advice from our lawyer on our rights and the next course of action," he said.

Saiful Nizam also noted that the letter came from the physical education teacher at the school his daughter previously studied.
