PETALING JAYA: Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and five other Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) leaders are seeking an interim injunction to maintain their status quo in the party pending a court decision on a suit challenging the nullification of their memberships.

The High Court has fixed June 18 to hear the interim injunction application filed on Thursday (June 11).

On Tuesday (June 9), the six party leaders led by Dr Mahathir filed a suit against Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, newly appointed secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin, executive secretary Muhammad Suhaimi Yahya and Registrar of Societies (RoS) director-general Masyati Abang Ibrahim, challenging a decision to nullify their memberships.

The other plaintiffs are deputy president Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, Armada chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, secretary-general Datuk Marzuki Yahya, and supreme council members Dr Maszlee Malik and Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah.

The plaintiffs were also seeking to nullify the membership of Muhyiddin, Hamzah and Suhaimi on grounds that they had joined the rival Perikatan Nasional coalition.

Lawyer Haniff Khatri Abdullah said they had served the writ of summons and notice of demand on the four defendants at their respective addresses.

"And the High Court has fixed July 9 for case management," he said.

Haniff said they would deliver the notice of application and relevant court documents to the defendants early next week.
