A company owned by Datuk Seri Mahmud Abu Bekir Taib, the son of Sarawak Governor Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud, today said it intends to counter sue Bangsar-based interior design firm Tatum (KL) Sdn Bhd which claimed that it was owed RM2,188,178.69.

Ivy Craft Sdn Bhd said in a press statement issued through a public relations company that it had communicated its intention to Tatum via a letter of demand on July 30, 2018.

Ivy Craft claimed that Tatum’s Aug 20 suit appeared to be a reaction to the former’s letter of demand.

The company said it sought repayment of monies previously paid to Tatum due to its breaches and failures, adding that it would sue the interior design firm for a sum in excess of RM2 million.

“Ivy Craft Sdn Bhd’s claim against Tatum (KL) Sdn Bhd is for failure to perform its obligations under its contract notwithstanding substantial payments having already been made to Tatum (KL) Sdn Bhd.”

“Ivy Craft Sdn Bhd further intends on filing a counterclaim against Tatum (KL) Sdn Bhd for a sum in excess of RM2 million,” the statement read.

The company said it refutes Tatum’s claim in its entirety.

It was reported yesterday that Tatum was suing Mahmud Abu Bekir over a project involving his bungalow.

Tatum claimed that it had a contract that was “unlawfully terminated” and was entitled to be paid for all services previously rendered, plus damages and costs.
