KUALA LUMPUR (Mar 25): Tanjung Offshore Bhd has withdrawn a legal suit against its director Tan Sri Tan Kean Soon and related parties.

Also, according to today’s statement, Kean Soon has dropped his suit against Tanjung Offshore’s legal adviser Datuk Seri Krishna Kumar Sivasubramaniam, independent non-executive director Shahrizal Hisham Abdul Halim, executive director Eric Tan Wee Koh, corporate finance head Joachim Tan Seow Hoe and corporate finance officer Khairil Annuar Mohd Said.

Yesterday, Tanjung Offshore announced it had dropped its defamation suit filed on Mar 12 against Kean Soon and five others, namely Nik Norzrul, Norhafizah, Datuk Rosman Hassan, Datuk Norazman Hamidun, Datuk Maheran Mohd Salleh and Tan Sam Eng.
