"Corrupted" Court Rules In Favor of Anwar


The "corrupted" Malaysian High Court has ruled in favor of Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in his defamation suit against Utusan Melayu (Malaysia) Bhd and its chief editor for publishing two articles on his comments about homosexual laws in a BBC interview.

Justice V.T. Singham ruled that the words in the article were defamatory and could bring down Anwar’s reputation and political standing by suggesting that he would not make a suitable leader of the federal government.

The defendants, he said, had also failed to prove justification in publishing the article, adding that there was no evidence that they did not intend to defame Anwar.

“They have also failed to prove fair comment. Public interest was not served as Utusan Malaysia did not publish and reproduce the plaintiff’s statement in full (from the BBC interview),” said Justice Singham.

Granting for damages to be assessed, Justice Singham also ordered the defendants to pay RM45,000 in costs to Anwar.

The Spanker Says:
Can we trust this "corrupted" Malaysian High Court judgement? Is Justice V T Singham "corrupted" ? Or are the courts impartial and fair only when it involves the Opposition?

Or are the courts now so afraid of being labeled "biased" aginst the opposition that they have begun to make decisions in favour of the opposition?

Just a thought....

On what basis are you saying that the High Court judgement and the judge are both "corrupted"?

If you have grounds to believe so, and concrete supporting evidence, have you reported it to the relevant parties?

Or are you skating perilously close to "contempt of court"?

Well the bar council is already biased for the opposition.

It's spelled s-a-t-i-r-e

I think the Utusan had spinned a story which is so difficult to believe even by the corrupted court so they have no choice.
