KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk SM Faisal SM Nasimuddin Kamal filed a lawsuit against rapper Caprice, for allegedly uploading defamatory posts on his Instagram, which linked the businessman to the case of his ex-wife Emilia Hanafi.

Based on the statement of claim, SM Faisal claimed that on June 27, the Kuala Lumpur Syariah High Court ordered Emilia to serve seven days in prison, after being found to have failed to comply with the court’s commitment order.

The plaintiff’s claim, the incident was publicized and manipulated by Emilia or a certain party with malicious intent (mala fide), through mass or electronic media widely without any reference or clarification from the plaintiff or the Syariah Court, regarding the true position of the case involving the plaintiff and the former his wife in the Syariah Court.

SM Faisal claimed that the day after (June 28), the defendant defamed the plaintiff or the Syariah Court by uploading defamatory videos and messages on the defendant’s Instagram.

“The defamatory post received wide publicity because the defendant has approximately 1.5 million followers on his Instagram and the post was viewed or liked by approximately 14,500 people,” the plaintiff alleged.

SM Faisal claimed that the slanderous message meant, among other things, that he was a cruel and reckless man who wanted to imprison his ex-wife, in addition to being inconsiderate and acting aggressively towards women or children.

According to the plaintiff, the defendant’s actions caused him emotional distress in addition to being ridiculed by the general public.

The businessman claimed that a letter of demand dated July 7 was sent requesting that the defendant withdraw the delivery in addition to apologizing to the plaintiff, but the defendant failed to fulfill the demand.

An injunction is also requested for the defendant to remove and delete the defamatory post, in addition to seeking an order to prevent the defendant or his representative from harassing and threatening the plaintiff and his family members, either verbally or through social media.

Therefore, the plaintiff seeks general damages, punitive damages, exemplary damages, aggravated damages and costs.

Lawyer Datuk Akberdin Abdul Kader, who represented SM Faisal when contacted by reporters today, confirmed the filing of the defamation suit and informed that Oct 14 is set for case management before Sessions Court Judge Idah Ismail.
