Plan to make green by investing in green comes to grief in Malaysia.
Radar reported today that movie tough guy Bruce Willis filed lawsuit against defendants that include His Royal Highness Prince Imram Ibni Tuanku Ja'afar of Malaysia, alleging that the prince fleeced him out of two million dollars. Willis claims he invested in a company owned by the prince called Petra Group, which was involved in developing a non-toxic and recyclable “green” rubber. According to court papers, the deal Willis entered allowed him to request his investment back at any time. Allegedly he did exactly that and the Prince failed to fork over the cash. Willis is now requesting more than seven million dollars in damages.
