Ain’s Parents Retaliate With RM5 Million Lawsuit Against Teacher Who Made Inappropriate Jokes

Just recently, 17-year-old Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam was sent a letter of demand for RM1 million by her teach who has made inappropriate jokes. But this has not ended yet, Ain’s parents decided to file a counter-suit against the teacher for RM5 million for “intentional infliction of emotional stress by insulting her modesty”. Ain’s family will rely on the defence of fair comment, qualified privilege, and all other defences available in the Defamation Act 1957.

“We have replied to his RM1 million suit that we are contesting. A formal letter of demand for the RM5 million compensation shall follow,” Saiful Nizam, Ain’s father said. Apparently, the teacher decided to file a police repost against Ain after the public prosecutor decided to not press any charges against him over the rape jokes allegations.

Sungai Buloh district police chief Supt Shafa’aton Abu Bakar said her department received a notice of no further action (NFA) against the teach from the deputy public prosecutor. Since voicing out against rape culture in Malaysian Schools, the 17-year-old student has sparked a nationwide debate on sex education, she even started #MakeSchoolASaferPlace to fight for a safer environment for students in Malaysia.
