A lawyer representing Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor said the alleged posting made by Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming last year in his Facebook showing as if Rosmah was the prime minister, a cabinet minister and an MP, was defamatory.

Lawyer Mohd Hafarizam Harun submitted that the posting was as if they were in a Cabinet meeting; however, “we have affidavits from Malacca Chief Minister Idris Haron and Senator Sim Kui Hian (from SUPP) that the picture taken in China proved otherwise”.

Hafarizam, who wants the suit be decided on case law and not go for a full trial under provision of Order 14A of Rules of Court 2012, said the elements have been met, namely Nga did not deny the posting refers to the plaintiffs, and the Facebook account is his own as shown in his defence statement.
