NO ILL WILL AGAINST CM, SAYS REPORTER
GEORGE TOWN: A Berita Harian reporter told the High Court yesterday she had no “niat jahat” (ill will) against Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. Siti Sofia Md Nasir said “no” when asked the question by Leong Wai Hong, who is representing New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd (NSTP). Berita Harian is a newspaper under the NSTP stable, in the civil suit filed by Lim against the publishing house. The two-term chief minister had filed the suit against the paper for a Aug 20, 2015 report titled “Guan Eng tarik balik saman terhadap bekas Ketua Pemdua Umno Negeri”. The report was on a defamation case between Lim and Bagan Umno division chief Datuk Shaik Hussein Mydin over a Oct 5, 2012, statement made by the latter.
