SUNGAI BULOH: There is no action recommended in connection with the case of a physical education teacher who allegedly made rape jokes in class, police say.

Sungai Buloh OCPD Supt Shafa'aton Abu Bakar said when contacted on Thursday (Aug 5) that police received a No Further Action notice from the deputy public prosecutor on the case.

Student Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam, who drew the matter to the public's attention, said recently she had received a letter of demand seeking damages of RM1mil for allegedly making defamatory remarks.

The 17-year-old 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," she said.

According to the letter, Ain Husniza said she had seven days to fulfil the demands listed, one of which was to pay RM1mil in 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, while thanking people for their support.

Ain Husniza made headlines earlier this year for calling out her physical education teacher's rape jokes allegedly 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. Following (our) lawyer's advice, we will not comment further on this for now," he had said.
