Singer Hadiqa Kiani Is Going To Sue UK Company Metro For Defamation
Singer Hadiqa Kiani has engaged an eminent councel to sue UK company metro.co.uk for allowing fake site metro.uk.com to defame her and tarnish the image of Pakistan by spreading false news regarding her arrest. Hadiqa's lawyer said she is an acclaimed musician and has received Tamgha e Imtiaz among many other awards while her philanthropic endeavours have been recognized by many international organizations like OXFAM international and UNICEF, she has also the honor of being appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program and the World Wildlife Fund. Barrister said a false and malicious story aimed at destroying Hadiqa's reputation was published on the website titled metro.uk.com in which it was said that Hadiqa was arrested at Heathrow Airport London on charges of possessing contraband, while she was present in Lahore on 12 and 13th February performing at Sufi Festival. Therefore, she had to give an interview to the media that she was very much present in Lahore and not in London and the news was concocted. The notice sent to the site said in the last, if the site does not respond then they should be ready to face a defamation suit in which case damage of 50 million pounds will be claimed.
