Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari has filed a lawsuit against Kedah Menteri Besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor over his allegation on the Klang river cleaning project.
Amirudin, as the plaintiff, filed the suit through Tetuan Haijan Omar at the Shah Alam High Court on Aug 30, naming Sanusi as the defendant.
On Aug 9, Amirudin filed a notice of claim against Sanusi demanding an apology within 48 hours for his statement in a speech in Jitra last month.
The notice of claim stated that Sanusi had slandered the Selangor Pakatan Harapan chairman and that Berjaya Group founder Vincent Tan wanted to implement a RM10 billion project at Sungai Klang and that the businessman would receive 600 acres of land for free.
Amirudin is seeking general, aggravated and exemplary damages, as well as an injunctive order to prevent Sanusi from repeating the allegations.
His lawyer, Haijan Omar, when contacted by Bernama, confirmed the filing of the suit and said the court had fixed Oct 3 for case management.
