KL, June 19: Screenshots blogger Jeff Ooi will have to wait another month at least for his application to strike out a defamation suit by NSTP and 3 Others to be heard. NSTP and the 3 filed the suit in January this year and were granted an intra-parte injunction that has been in effect ever since.
September 11 has been set for hearing Jeff's application to merge his case with mine. However, this will depend also on the outcome of my application to strike out the defamation suit filed against me by NSTP and 4 Others. They filed the suit against me in January but failed to obtain an intra-parte injunction against me.

This libel suit is turning out to be one big farce. this suit is getting nowhere, this suit makes everyone puke. This suit is bleeding the NST, and the tax payers. The only silver lining is that the suit will be decided in 30 years time, by which time everyone will have forgotten what it was all about in the first place.ReplyDelete
It is increasingly evident from this feet-dragging that the purpose of the court proceedings themselves is to effectively muzzle you and Jeff. It may be worthwhile, should you and Jeff feel confident in the moral righteousness of your case for you to ignore any injunctions against you pertaining to the case even at risk of contempt.ReplyDelete
Clearly you, and the nation as a whole are not beneficiaries of this feet dragging. Indeed, one may even plead to the court for a more expedititious approach to the case as such delays in court proceedings is in itself in contempt of your material rights as part of the Fifth Estate in safeguarding the rights of the citizens in Malaysia.
Hang in there, Jeff.ReplyDelete
Many are walking with you both.
A waste of time if you asked me.ReplyDelete
Guess those sitting upstairs are bored with the puppet play which happened in The Malay Mail and NST.

Should there be a change in power, then, possibly the case will be withdrawn or something .ReplyDelete
Bring on the election---and maybe we can at least give a serious wake-up call .
This case will end in 2020.ReplyDelete
Malaysian justice is terrible, a case that would take anywhere 3-4 weeks to be solved takes easily 5 years in Malaysia.
Than they still call it justice......
Can anyone explain what an intra-parte injunction is? I googled but found nothing. Does it have something to do with Jeff pulling all the previous articles from the front page?ReplyDelete
Good Luck, Rocky and Uncle Jeff...ReplyDelete
Erm, will it be too much to ask that you put a little bracket explaining all those law-yish terms next time?
Like you know, 'habeas corpus' (right to petition for the 'writ' (formal written order))...
But whatever it is, good luck! I wish you all the best...

It all seems fine, isn’t it?
Only the loaded ones I am afraid
The underdogs where is the chance
Hang it there, bro
A good fight never ends
It is a light for tomorrow
The powerful won’t win all the time
These lords are putting barriers
Trying to muscle unconnected people
The 3rd wave of consciousness
For the people to understand
The lords will use the court
Muscling the poor underdogs
But the truth will make it free
So hang it there, bro
We will be watching listening
Giving you our support
In whatever we think it should be
Even the powerful Romans Empire fell
They think they won’t?
When consciousness bring the light to the world
... yes, there are some serious "lawish-jargon" here, I will never ever be able to write such stuff. Understanding them is already complicating enough for me ... :)ReplyDelete
NSTP is wasting shareholder money to sue Jeff Ooi and rocky bru. What they intend to achieved by suing or do they intend to make their case a test case on defamation in the cyberspace. At the moment, they have manage to increased the readership of rocky bru blog and Jeff Ooi more popular.ReplyDelete
We all behind u both, rocky and Jeff Ooi.
