The former chairman of Malaysia Airlines (MAS), Tajudin Ramli is suing the airline for defamation after the carrier alleged he had been involved in fraud and cargo price fixing. Tajudin claims MAS caused defamatory comments to be made in the print and online version of Malaysia Today newspaper. “MAS has instructed its solicitors to take the necessary action to set the matter down for trial as soon as possible.
