Man sues runaway bride

2011-08-09 07:25

Kuala Lumpur – A Malaysian man is suing his former fianceé for more than $360 000 (R2.5 million) for leaving him just six hours before their wedding.

Lawyer Latifah Ariffin says 32-year-old Masran Abdul Rahman and his family were distressed and deeply embarrassed when Norzuliyana Mat Hassan called off the June wedding at the last minute.

Latifah says Masran had invited 1 200 guests to the reception and was seeking compensation for damages and defamation from Norzuliyana and her father.

The suit was filed yesterday in a court in northeast Kelantan state.

Latifah said today that Norzuliyana didn’t give any reason for backing out of the arranged marriage.

Norzuliyana could not immediately be reached for comment.
