KUALA LUMPUR: Papagomo will know on June 20 the fate of his bid to stay the court ruling ordering him to pay RM850,000 to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim over postings in the form of words and images that implicate the Opposition leader with another man.
High Court Judicial Commissioner Rosilah Yop fixed the date after hearing submissions by the parties in chambers.
Speaking to reporters here yesterday, Anwar’s lawyer Shahid Adli said Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris, identified by the court as Papagomo, had represented himself.
“He (Papagomo) provided written submissions to the court. He had submitted himself before the judicial commissioner,” he added.
Wan Muhammad Azri later confirmed to the media on the matter.
JC Rosilah had on Feb 28 held that Anwar had proven that Wan Muhammad Azri was in fact Papagomo and that the defamatory statements had referred to the PKR leader.
JC Rosilah awarded Anwar RM800,000 in general damages and RM50,000 in costs after a full trial.
In her judgment, JC Rosilah said the award was based on facts of the case, Anwar’s standing, the defamatory statements which contained “vicious and vulgar language” were published widely and there was no apology on the blogger’s part over the matter.
