PU­TRA­JAYA: Datuk Seri An­war Ibrahim has been or­dered by the Court of Ap­peal here to pay RM100,000 costs af­ter he lost his ap­peal on a defama­tion suit against For­eign Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Ani­fah Aman.

A three-mem­ber panel al­lowed Ani­fah’s ap­peal for a higher amount of le­gal costs for the pro­ceed­ings at the High Court which had only awarded RM20,000. His coun­sel Tan Sri Muham­mad Shafee Ab­dul­lah had also re­quested an­other RM50,000 costs for the Ap­peals Court pro­ceed­ings af­ter it re­jected An­war’s ap­peal against the High Court’s dis­missal of his law­suit over Ani­fah’s state­ment at a con­fer­ence in the United States in 2009. – Ber­nama
