KUALA LUMPUR: The Delegation Of Nurses which plans to sue Elite singer Linda Rafar wants an apology and compensation from her.
The non-governmental organisation, in a Facebook post today, said it had sent a court claim to Linda, demanding that she apologise and compensate the nurses she criticised, within seven days.
The statement added that Linda would face court action if she failed to meet the demands.
“We hope this incident will be a lesson to all cyber bullies who attack dedicated nurses on social media and the Internet. We also want to thank all of our donors and supporters for standing behind us.”
Last Monday, the non-governmental organisation said in its Facebook account that the nurse was a victim of defamation and had made a police report against Linda, and that it was raising funds to cover the legal fees for a lawsuit against the singer.
The 40-year-old artiste denied insulting the nursing profession, and only slammed a small group of nurses who looked after her mother at a hospital. She also said that many people faced similar problems and that the truth would prevail.
She had criticised the nurses for not cooperating with her when she requested that her mother’s soiled bedsheet be replaced.
The posting became viral quickly and even received the attention of the Health Ministry, which had sent a representative from the hospital to meet with Linda.
