Fasha Sandha to file defama­tion suit against event or­gan­iser and ‘third party’. TAHIR ALHAMZAH has the story

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

FAR from be­ing over, the spat be­tween pop­u­lar ac­tresses Fasha Sandha and Nora Dan­ish is un­fold­ing like a soap opera. While Alexis and Krys­tle were fic­tional char­ac­ters that used to en­ter­tain TV au­di­ences in the 1980s se­ries Dy­nasty, this episode cur­rently hap­pen­ing in our very own en­ter­tain­ment back­yard, may soon turn into a court­room drama.

Still hol­i­day­ing in Aus­tralia, Fasha, 33, yes­ter­day sent over a writ­ten press state­ment on her next course of ac­tion, since she has no plans to hold a press con­fer­ence re­gard­ing the mat­ter on her re­turn.

“Al­though the or­gan­is­ers of ‘Fenom­ena Aidil­fitri’, Glass Go Me­dia, has apol­o­gised to me, I still in­tend to take le­gal ac­tion against the or­gan­is­ers, as well as the ‘third party’ for de­fam­ing me.

“I did not men­tion any names on my In­sta­gram ac­count @fashasandha, and what I wrote there was only to share my thoughts over what had taken place dur­ing the said event. So, what proof do they have about me bad­mouthing any in­di­vid­ual as claimed?” said the mother of two.

“I will file a defama­tion suit against any­one who has claimed that I have caused dam­age to the (cloth­ing) la­bel and I’m not scared to do so,” said Fasha, who also added that this was not the first time this in­di­vid­ual had at­tempted to sue her.

“This ‘third party’ sued me seven years ago. How­ever, it was a fu­tile at­tempt. And now, she is at­tempt­ing to do the same again,” she said.

“I view the ac­tion of su­ing me by the ‘third party’ as im­ma­ture,” said Fasha, adding that this would be the last time she would com­ment on the mat­ter, since it is now be­ing han­dled by her le­gal team.

On Thurs­day, Fasha posted a long cap­tion on her ac­count, vent­ing her frus­tra­tion at a sit­u­a­tion she was caught in.

She said a fel­low celebrity wanted her out from a fash­ion event, ‘Fenom­ena Aidil­fitri’.

Ac­cord­ing to Fasha, she was in­formed that the celebrity threat­ened to pull out from the func­tion should she make an ap­pear­ance.

At the end of her cap­tion, she wrote: “All the best to you bu­rung hantu (owl) #moveon­please”.

The fol­low­ing day, Nora Dan­ish told the me­dia that she was su­ing Fasha Sandha and a blog­ger for mak­ing defam­a­tory re­marks about her on so­cial me­dia.

Present at the press con­fer­ence was Amirud­din Rizuan Ali, di­rec­tor of Glass Go Me­dia, who ad­mit­ted that the con­fu­sion had arisen due to his own flawed judg­ment and apol­o­gised to both ac­tresses for hav­ing caused the in­con­ve­nience.

While Nora ac­cepted the apol­ogy, she was adamant about tak­ing le­gal ac­tion against Fasha and the blog­ger for de­fam­ing her.


Ac­tress Fasha Sandha sent a press state­ment on her next course of ac­tion from Aus­tralia, since she has no plans to hold a press con­fer­ence re­gard­ing the mat­ter upon her re­turn.
