Dr Amalina wrote that her lawyers had issued a summons letter towards the local tabloids and reiterated that she didn’t do so to limit the free press.
2. Peguam saya telahpun mengemukakan surat saman terhadap tabloid2 ini pada hari ini. Saya tidak berniat sama sekali menyekat kebebasan media, tetapi dalam hal ini tabloid2 ini bagi saya telah melangkaui batas & ini tidak boleh berterusan.— Dr. Amalina (@DrAmalinaBakri) January 2, 2023
In the summons letter, she urged the tabloids to take down the misleading articles and not to cover sensational news about her moving forward.
Dr Amalina is seeking a public apology within 7 days of the legal letter. She states that she isn’t looking for any payout and wants to keep the case out of court if all parties agree to cooperate.
She added that she would take legal action against the online trolls on Facebook next.
As a parent, you wouldn’t want people to behave similarly towards your children. I hope the authorities can protect Malaysian citizens from cyberbullying cases involving children. I hope we get to fight for the enactment of an anti-cyberbullying act so this will not happen again.Amalina Bakri wrote on Twitter
