Malu. In trying to put up a defence against the defamation suit filed by the NSTP, Kalimullah Hassan, Hishamuddin Aun, Syed Faisal Albar and Brenden a/l Pereira against me in January, I was embarrassed; which basically means that:
1/ I do not know the exact nature of the Plaintiffs' case against me; and
2/ I am left in uncertainty as to which imputations flow from each of the alleged offending publications and/or comments. My lawyers and I have tried to decipher the meanings of their claims against me.
My lawyers had written to the plaintiffs' lawyers requesting for further and better details of their claims in order to help me with the task but they declined.
I was therefore left with two options:
First, to file a holding defence against claims that least embarrassed me, namely:
a. Plagiarism concerning the 5th Plaintiff
b. Weekend Mail concerning the 4th Plaintiff
Second, to apply to strike out the entire suit
I applied the first option on Thursday [see reports by Malaysia Today and Malaysiakini; also the mainstream media including the Star and Bernama and several blogs] and yesterday applied to strike out the entire' suit [here].
