Monument Commences Action For Injunction And Damage
Release #10 - 2008
Vancouver, B.C. Monument Mining Limited (TSX-V:MMY and FSE:D7Q1) (“Monument” or the “Company”) advises that it has issued a writ in the High Court of British Columbia against Sim Tze Chui AKA Jyn Tze Baker et el. (“the Defendants”) for defamation. The Company is seeking an injunction and damages against the Defendants.
The defendants sent letters to a variety of parties, amongst them the Legal Counsel for Monument, the Company’s Brokers, its Investor Relations agents and employees, the TSX Venture Exchange, the London AIM Exchange and others, alleging that Monument did not own one of its Malaysian properties known as the Selinsing property.
The Company has confirmed ownership to the Selinsing property and that there is no substance to the Defendants’ claims. Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor the London AIM Exchange has taken the matter further. Monument has continued its exploration and development activities in respect to the Selinsing property.
Notwithstanding confirmation of ownership and a High Court of Malaysia injunction preventing the defendants from making such statements, they have continued to do so in contempt of the court order. The Company has therefore been forced to commence proceedings in the High Court of British Columbia for injunctive relief, for defamation and for general and specific damages and costs of the action.
