The prime minister’s aide, Rizal Mansor, today challenged Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s lawyer to sue him for defamation after the latter accused him of slandering the former prime minister.
In a Facebook post, Rizal turned the tables on Haniff Khatri Abdulla, pointing out that slandering would mean he had either fabricated stories or made baseless allegations.
“However, Mahathir’s lawyer himself admitted that what I said was exactly what Mahathir said (in his speech).
“Don’t tell me a lawyer like him does not know the difference.
Sue me if it is slander.”
