Court Dismisses Blogger's Application To Strike Out NSTP's Suit

The High Court here today dismissed blogger Jeff Ooi Chuan Aun's application to strike out a defamation suit brought against him by New Straits Times Press (M) Berhad (NSTP) and three others.

Deputy registrar Mohamad Kamil Nizam dismissed the application with costs in his chambers.

NSTP, its deputy chairman, Datuk Kalimullah Hassan, group editor-in-chief Datuk Hishamuddin Aun and former group editor Brendan Pereira are suing Ooi for defamation and malicious falsehood in respect of certain articles which Ooi had published or allowed to be published on his weblog.

They claimed that the articles referred to them and were defamatory.-- BERNAMA
