KUALA LUMPUR: National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd (NFCorp) executive chairman Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail did not succeed to include the affidavits of MACC officers into his suit against a former consultant.
High Court Judicial Commissioner Mohd Zaki Abdul Wahab said he found that both affidavits were not relevant to the injunction application sought by Dr Mohamad Salleh.
Dr Mohamad Salleh is suing his former consultant Shamsubahrin Ismail for defamation over some postings on Facebook.
In the suit filed on July 3, Dr Mohamad Salleh said Shamsubahrin, now on bail pending appeal, had published six statements against him between May 19 and June 23.
JC Mohd Zaki set today to decide on a temporary injunction bid sought by Dr Mohamad Salleh to stop his former consultant from publishing statements against him pending disposal of the suit.
In the suit, Dr Mohamad Salleh said the statements had implied that Shamsubahrin was made a “scapegoat” in order to protect him.
He said Shamsubahrin was angry as he had been convicted by a Sessions Court on May 18 for cheating.
Shamsubahrin was sentenced to eight years jail and ordered to be whipped four times for cheating Dr Mohamad Salleh. He was also ordered to pay RM611,895 as penalty in default four years jail for the offence and 17 counts of money laundering totalling RM1.7mil.
In his statement of claim asking for damages, Dr Mohamad Salleh said the offending words meant that he had abused his position and influence to get the protection of the Prime Minister, Government and all ministries, agencies and departments to ensure that he would not be prosecuted or made liable for wrongdoings.
