Samy Obtains Interim Injunction Against Newspaper And Four Others

Contributed by Anonymous on Tuesday, July 15 @ 03:39:15 CDT

Samy VelluKUALA LUMPUR, July 15 (Bernama) -- MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu obtained an interim injunction from the High Court here today restraining former Klang MIC division chief P. Thiagarasan, the publisher of Tamil daily Malaysia Nanban and three others from publishing further libellous articles about him.

Justice Datuk Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat granted the order in chambers and set Aug 1 for the inter-parte hearing.

Samy Vellu on July 3 filed a suit against the five, seeking RM10 million damages for libel and other damages deemed fit by the court.

He named Thiagarasan, Malaysia Nanban, the daily's editor, M. Maryanandy, journalist M. Yogalinggam and the printing company, Aslita Sdn Bhd, as defendents.

In his statement of claim, he said Yogalinggam had written an article published in the daily on June 25 which contained libellous elements which had damaged his reputation among the Indian community.

Samy Vellu added that the article had also affected his credibility and his good name.

He also claimed that the defendents' actions had not only tarnished his image as party president but also change the people's perception on the party's ability in safeguarding the interest of the Indian community.

His counsel, S.Selvam, said the writ of summons would be served on the defendants today.
