KUALA LUMPUR: The application by the police and the government to strike out a Umno's lawsuit over the seizure of RM116.7mil cash by authorities from properties linked to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will be heard in February.

The police and the government filed the application on grounds that Umno does not have locus standi (legal standing) to bring the action against them.

Umno's counsel Datuk Hariharan Tara Singh told reporters that High Court judge Justice Nik Hasmat Nik Mohamad set Feb 11 to hear the matter.

Hariharan said this after Justice Nik Hasmat met parties in chambers on Tuesday (Dec 4).

Senior Federal Counsel Narkunavathy Sundareson dan Khairul Nizam Mohd Kamal acted for the police and government.

Hariharan said the application would be heard on Feb 11, while the party's application to compel the police to provide documents relating to the seizure was fixed for case management the same day.
