Prita Mulyasari Omni InternasionalPrita Mulyasari, a mother of three from Tangerang who sparked a public and media frenzy last year with her legal battle against an upscale hospital, will not need to pay a hefty fine for allegedly defaming the hospital, as reported by the Jakarta Globe.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Harifin Andi Tumpa said on Friday that the court rejected the civil lawsuit against Prita, which was filed by Omni International Hospital in Serpong, Tangerang, Banten province.

Prita was accused of defaming Omni International Hospital in Tangerang after she wrote an e-mail message to 20 of her friends complaining of poor treatment.

“ The court’s ruling today means that Prita is free from all obligations, as we reject the hospital ’s lawsuit against her,” Harifin was quoted as saying by Antara news agency via the Jakarta Post.
