Should I sue you too?

IPOH: A man was ordered by the High Court here to pay at least RM70,000 for breaking a promise to marry a woman.

Justice Mohd Azman Husin ruled that legal clerk S. Nagamah, 38, had proven a claim against legal office administrator R. Punnosamy, 41.

The decision was made in chambers yesterday.

Justice Mohd Azam said he found Nagamah’s testimony to be more convincing than Punnosamy’s and ordered him to pay RM50,000 for breaching his promise to marry her.

He also ordered Punnosamy to pay RM20,000 for Nagamah’s mental anguish and loss of reputation, name and honour, as well as costs.

Another RM2,000 was awarded to Nagamah as compensation for assault when Punnosamy slapped her in 2002 after she had supposedly threatened his fiancée at a tuition centre in Teluk Intan.

A case of a man breaking his promise to marry a woman is a rather very subjective matter. Mere monetary compensation will definitely not going to undone what he has done to her, but remember for some men out there, money means a lot to them. Taking a portion of their wealth surely gonna hurt their ego (plus with the fact that their names have been published in leading daily!). Nagamah might never get back what she has lost, but she has set a precedence to women in Malaysia.

Guys... Dare to cheat another gal again???
