Damages for wrongful ex-parte injunction. Lawyer-politician Wee Choo Keong, who in April won a 14-year appeal against an ex-parte injunction wrongly obtained by MBf Holdings Bhd and MBf Finance Bhd (now known as Ambank Bhd) against him, has filed for damages amounting to RM40 million against Ambank Bhd.
Wee filed the affidavit yesterday and the court accepted it today and has fixed 23-11-07 for cross-examination, if need be. MBf Holding Bhd and Ambank must file their affidavit two weeks before 23-11-07. The case today was heard before Senior Assistant Registrar, Puan Nor Hayati.

p.s. Wee joined the lawyers for the walk for justice last week. His name also cropped up in the Lingam tape. Jeff Ooi had the pic and story here.
