KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has adjourned to May the defamation trial of former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik against the DAP and two of its leaders. 

Justice James Foong fixed May 9 and May 28 to 30 to hear the case in his chambers yesterday. 

Abdul Rahim is suing the DAP and its chairman, Lim Kit Siang, and DAP adviser Dr Chen Man Hin in connection with the publication and distribution of a book and posters he claimed was libellous. 

He claimed that the book and posters were published in connection with a campaign the defendants started in mid-1998 and that the words published were false, malicious and had no basis.
