KUALA LUMPUR: The defamation suit filed by former Cabinet minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin against Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar and two others cannot be settled out of court.
The matter is set to go for a full trial after the parties could not reach an agreement during a mediation process.
Speaking to reporters later, Raja Nong Chik said they could not reach a settlement and that he would prove his claim over the defamatory words.
“It is my personal reputation and family’s name that I have to protect,” he said after the parties met mediation judge Zainal L. Salleh in chambers at the Mediation Centre here.
Nurul Izzah, however, said that she would defend her statement for public interest.
“The demand cannot be met during the mediation,” Nurul Izzah added.
Nurul Izzah’s lawyer K. Shanmuga said that the matter would go to trial before High Court judge Justice Yeoh Wee Siam as the parties could not come to an agreement to resolve the suit during the mediation.
In his suit filed on July 17 last year, Raja Nong Chik named Nurul Izzah, online news publisher Mkini Dotcom Sdn Bhd and its reporter Lu Wei Hoong as defendants in his libel suit.
