.: Promise :.



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.

Outside the courtroom, Nagamah’s counsel S. Muthuveeran told reporters that Nagamah was still single and being stigmatised because of what had happened.

“She was really in love with him. That’s why she felt cheated,” he said.

Last year, Nagamah had testified that she had sex with Punnosamy 31 times on the belief that they were in love and would marry.

She denied having any ill intention when she recorded the date and place of each sexual encounter, which occurred in various places in Sitiawan, Teluk Intan and Ipoh from 1998 to 2001.

Nagamah also disagreed that she kept the records of their sexual encounters to prevent him from running away from her. She had testified that she only had intimate relations with Punnosamy because she loved him.
