The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PU­TRA­JAYA: The Court of Ap­peal has dis­missed an ap­peal by the in­spec­tor-gen­eral of po­lice (IGP) and a min­is­ter to strike out Nu­rul Iz­zah An­war’s defama­tion suit against them. Its panel of judges, led by Datuk Mohd Zawawi Salleh, dis­missed the ap­peal yes­ter­day. This means the civil suit will go for trial on May 8, next year.

“We are of the opin­ion that the case should go for trial. The High Court judge is right in not al­low­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion un­der Order 18 of Rules of High Court 2012,” said Zawawi, who sat to­gether with Datuk Ab­dul Rah­man Se­bli and Datuk Dr Prasad San­dosham Abra­ham.
