The former premier then went to Twitter this afternoon, where he confirmed that he had received the LOD from Khalid, and wrote that he would see Khalid in court. Several media reports said Khalid is seeking RM10 million from Dr Mahathir for defamation, following the former premier's allegations last month. Khalid sent the LOD, dated April 22, through Messrs Gunaseharan & Linda, seeking an apology within seven days. The former IGP has also denied Dr Mahathir's allegations, which he described as untrue, defamatory and had tarnished his reputation. Khalid also asked Dr Mahathir to withdraw his statement, which had been published on several news portals, as it affects his reputation as a former IGP.
