Yesterday (Tuesday 17th August), the versatile actress Rozita Che Wan or better known as Che Ta finished testifying her statement regarding the police report made by controversial TV personality, Azwan Ali against her. Rozita in her statement with reporters said that the testifying process went smoothly and they are now waiting for further action.
For the uninitiated, the conflict between Azwan Ali (better known as Diva AA) and Rozita Che Wan erupted when Azwan Ali commented on Rozita’s outfit during her vaccination appointment which he deemed overly excessive. He even used offensive remarks and vulgarity to comment on her outfit in his Twitter post.
Although some might consider his tweet as a joke, Azwan Ali’s remarks can be seen as a bit overboard as his caption included some indecent words. Surprised by the harsh criticism thrown at her by someone she considered as a friend in the industry, Rozita then retaliated by lashing out that individuals like Azwan Ali should not exist on earth.
According to Azwan Ali, he acted to file a suit and lodged a police report against the actress after claiming that she linked his wealth to a well-known politician who is also his brother, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali. He intended to file a suit amounting to RM5 million against Rozita’s defamation.
On Tuesday evening, Rozita had already testified at the Brickfields District Police Headquarters (IPD) to assist in the investigation of the report regarding the alleged defamatory statement against Azwan Ali. Rozita who was present with her husband, Zain Saidin and her manager Afeeq Abdul Wahab yesterday gave full cooperation to the police, mStar reported. She told mStar that she admitted to responding to the offensive remarks by Azwan Ali hastily on her Instagram because she was too angry.
However, the actress stated that she deleted the IG post an hour later to prevent the situation from becoming worse. “I retaliated to his statement because he insulted me. As a woman, of course I felt insulted by his extreme and indecent words. After an hour, I deleted it because I was angry at the time. I reflected on myself after, and I don’t want to fight,” she told the media.
Rozita in her statement also mentioned that she is ready to forgive Azwan Ali and she has no plans to take follow-up legal action. The decision was made as she refused to prolong the misunderstanding between them.
Meanwhile, the actress decided to leave the matter to the authorities. Azwan Ali has yet to respond regarding his next course of action on the issue.
