Guan Eng Demands Apology From Utusan Malaysia

(Bernama) – GEORGE TOWN — A notice of demand has been issued to publisher Utusan Malaysia (M) Bhd and its editor, calling them to retract and apologise for an article alleging that Penang Chief minister Lim Guan Eng had misused and abused power in the construction of a carpark lot at Penang Hill.

Lim’s legal counsel Jagdeep Singh Deo said that if the demands was not met within a week, legal action would be taken against both parties.

“Lim has categorically denied that there were any deviation or abuse of power in the matter. This is a serious and malicious defamatory article against my client,” he said here on Thursday.

He alleged that Utusan Malaysia had published the article on Tuesday.
