The Kuala Lumpur High Court today dismissed Umno Youth deputy chief Khairul Azwan Harun's defamation suit against PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli over the latter's claim of possible abuse of funds in Mara's Australian property purchase.

Justice S Nantha Balan awarded a total of RM73,000 costs to be paid by Khairul Azwan to Rafizi. These include the RM23,000 that Rafizi had spent to get documents from Australia.

The judge said there was no malice on Rafizi's part when making his claims on Khairul Azwan, as they were based on the Pandan MP's own study and research, which included court proceedings in Australia.
