The Kuala Lumpur High Court will deliver its decision on former opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s application to strike out parts of Utusan Malaysia’s defence on June 28.

This pertains to Anwar’s defamation suit against former Permatang Pauh Umno candidate Mazlan Ismail, Utusan and TV3, which is being presided by Judge John Louis O Hara.

After hearing submissions from Anwar’s lawyer Sangeet Kaur Deo and Utusan’s lawyer Azhar Arman Ali today, the judge said he has made up his mind about the application.
