KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak is not delaying to file a suit against the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) over the 1MDB issue, but is waiting for WSJ’s response on the SPEECH Act, according to his lawyers. Lawyer Datuk Mohd Hafarizam Harun said he did not want the suit to be dismissed on a technicali­ty. “We are not delaying to file the suit, but we want to do it right the first time. We do not want the suit to be knocked off or dismissed on a technicali­ty,” he said when asked why the suit had yet to be filed. He said that he had to wait for the answer from WSJ on whether it would use the SPEECH Act in its defence. – Bernama
