    Razor chief didn’t like what he saw in Mirror

    Victor Kiam, the American tycoon who liked the Remington razor so much that he bought the company, had his reputation “robbed and murdered” by the City Sllickers gossip column in The Mirror, in a “premature obituary to his business career”, the High Court was told yesterday. 

    Mr. Kiam, the 73-year-old chairman and chief executive of Ronson, the lighter company, was in Court 35 yesterday to sue Mirror Group Newspapers, now Trinity Mirror, for libel and malicious falsehood over an article on Jan 6 last year. 

    The New Orleans born businessman is claiming huge damages against the newspaper over the article entitled “My company has bought it” which went on to claim that Mr. Kiam was putting Ronson into receivership “any time now”.
