KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has ordered Mohd Rafizi Ramli (pic) to pay RM200,000 in damages to National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd (NFCorp) executive chairman Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail and his company for defaming them.

High Court Judicial Commissioner Azizul Azmi Adnan made the decision after allowing Mohamad Salleh and NFCorp's suit against Mohd Rafizi, the first defendant.

Azizul ordered Mohd Rafizi, who is also PKR vice-president, to pay damages of RM150,000 to Mohamad Salleh and RM50,000 to his company.

The court also ordered Mohd Rafizi to pay costs of RM100,000 to both plaintiffs.

However, the court dismissed Mohamad Salleh and NFCorp's suit against Malaysiakini, which was named as the second defendant, and ordered the plaintiffs to pay cost of RM50,000 to the news portal. - Bernama
