Pahang MB vs Utusan to go for mediation first
The defamation suit between Pahang Menteri Besar Adnan Yaakob and Umno-owned Utusan Melayu (M) Bhd, would have to go for mediation before the High Court in Kuala Lumpur on Aug 4.
Lawyer Americk Singh told Malaysiakini that failing to reach a mediation, the matter would proceed to go for trial on Aug 7 and 8 and Aug 10 and 11.
This was decided by Justice Nik Hasmat Nik Mohamed during case management today.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
