Hafiz Yatim reported in Malaysiakini this morning:
Langkawi R&D Academy Sdn Bhd (Lardac) has failed in its controversial RM480 million suit against the defence minister, its secretary-general and government for alleged wrongful termination and breach of a defence contract.
Kuala Lumpur High Court justice Abdul Wahab Patail dismissed Lardac's application with costs. No grounds were given in Abdul Wahab's decision today. The judge also ordered Lardac to pay costs of RM20,000.
The court decision was made without the hearing of witnesses despite that they, including the ministry's former secretary-general Hashim Meon, were willing to come to court in April to testify for Lardac.
"It is surprising that no grounds were given in the decision. The decision today is highly suspicious in light that there is no trial ordered by the judge despite that witnesses were willing to come to testify," said Lardac's founder Mohammad Abdullah
The court said that the grounds for the dismissal of the case will be given on Friday.
G KRISHNAN'S piece on FACISM surely points to the TOXIC recipe of this distasteful dish. IF OUR COURTS CANNOT ASSURE US OF JUSTICE, WHO CAN. ZAKI SHOULD VOLUNTEER AN ANSWER.
