KUALA LUMPUR: A Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) manager is applying to strike out a civil suit filed by lawyer Rosli Dahlan against him and 16 others over claims of conspiracy, defamation, assault and false imprisonment.

Abdul Rahman Abu Bakar, who is BNM’s Financial Intelligence Unit manager, applied to the High Court that the civil action dated Sept 16, 2009, be struck out on grounds that BNM had not carried out any investigation under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001 (AMLA) and/or Banking and Financial Institutions Act (BAFIA) 1989 against the lawyer.
