After a businessman’s claim for damages for defamation against a provider of Credit Information due to the publication of inaccurate information regarding his financial status in its Credit Search Report was dismissed in the High Court, he appointed MWKA to represent him in his Appeal.
In 2010, the businessman, together with his team of lawyers from MWKA comprising of Mr Raymond Mah and Ms Carmen Teh successfully appealed against the decision of the High Court.
The Judges of the Court of Appeal unanimously allowed the businessman’s claims against the provider of credit information with costs on the grounds that a preceding head-note stating that the information published was not intended as confirmation of the current status of the case, did not, on the facts of the case, absolve the provider of credit information from responsibility for its mistakes.
Thus, in law and fact, the credit information published was defamatory of the plaintiff.
