Sanusi ordered to pay RM70,000 more for defaming ex-MP

THE Court of Appeal today ordered Kedah Menteri Besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor to pay an increased sum of damages of RM120,000 to former Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar for defamation.

This was after a three-member bench comprising Vazeer Alam Mydin Meera, Mariana Yahya and Wong Kian Kheong allowed Mahfuz’s cross-appeal for the quantum of damages to be increased from RM50,000 to RM120,000.
