KUALA LUMPUR: Actress Nur Fazura Sharifuddin filed a libel suit at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Tuesday against the publisher and editor of Mingguan Warta Perdana over an article published by the Malay-language tabloid on May 29.

The article commented on an ongoing case involving Fazura in which she was accused of assaulting a 30-year-old housewife at a pub here.

Fazura, the star of the movie Gol & Gincu, named Perdana Production House Sdn Bhd and Haslinda Hashim as the first and second defendants respectively.

The 22-year-old actress is seeking a public apology from the defendants and RM500,000 in general damages with interest and costs.
