Gerakan leader 'faces harassment' after lawsuit by building firm

Geraldine Tong  |  Published:  |  Modified:

Acting Penang Gerakan Youth chief Jason Loo said he and his family were threatened with physical assault following the defamation suit brought against him by Consortium Zenith-BUCG (CZBUCG).

In his counter claim filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court today, Loo said that CZBUCG, which had been awarded the concession to the Penang undersea tunnel project, had misled the public with its "reckless" defamation suit against him.

"After that (suit), the defendant and his family members have been harassed, threatened and warned of physical assault by those linked to the plaintiff or supporters of the Penang state government.

"As such, the safety of the defendant and his family have been compromised," his counter claim stated.
