FLIP FLOP! - "Anwar wants to amend statement in suit against Khairy."

The High Court will hear on Jan 27 Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim's application to amend certain parts of his statement of claim in his defamation suit against Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar.

The application will be heard before High Court Deputy Registrar Fa'erah Nurul Aini Izany.

The deputy registrar set the date in chambers after meeting Anwar's counsel Gobind Singh Deo, Malik Imtiaz Sarwar and S Prakash, and Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, representing Khairy.

The hearing of the suit had been fixed for two days from April 13 before High Court judge Dr Prasad Sandosham Abraham.

Anwar, 63, filed the suit on Sept 7, 2007, claiming that Khairy, who was then Umno Youth deputy chief, had defamed him at a political function in Kuala Kangsar, Perak, in August 2007.

He said the defamatory statements were carried by the print and electronic media on Aug 3, 2007.
Agent of US and Jews

Anwar claimed that the statements portrayed him as a politician who could not be trusted by the Malays, who did not give importance to the struggle of the Malays and their rights, and that he was capable of betraying the Malay struggle and rights just to get the support of the non-Malays.

The PKR advisor contended that Khairy had made the statements to insinuate that Anwar was a political agent of the United States and the Jews, as well as to ruin his political career, and that he had ill-intention when making the statements, which he said were lies, baseless and without truth.

Besides general, aggravated and exemplary damages and other relief deemed fit by the court, Anwar is also seeking an injunction to prevent Khairy or his agents from repeating the statements.

Reconsider decision not to contest, Wee tells Khairy

JOHOR BARU: MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong, describing his Umno counterpart as “a good comrade”, said Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin should reconsider his stand about staying out of the next general election.

“He should reconsider his decision as he can still contribute towards youth development in the country,” Dr Wee said, adding that Malaysians needed the youthful leadership Khairy had shown since becoming MP and leading the Umno Youth wing.

“In politics, there are ups and downs but he should never give up,” he told The Star yesterday.

Khairy was reported as saying on Saturday that he would take a break from politics and not defend his Rembau parliamentary seat at the next general election.

His announcement prompted Barisan Nasional Youth chief strategist Foo Seck Chyn to persuade Khairy not to quit as he could help improve the political scenario in Malaysia.

Foo cited, among Khairy’s contributions, his work to help less fortunate families and the setting up of the Barisan Youth lab to study the concerns of the country’s young people.

“I will be meeting him (Khairy) this week to discuss the matter.

“I seriously hope he will reconsider his decision as he has still a lot to contribute to the rakyat,” he said.

Hentikan Spekulasi – Khairy

Sinar Harian hari ini melaporkan Ahli Parlimen Rembau, Khairy Jamaluddin mahu semua pihak “hentikan spekulasi,” sebagai mengulas beberapa laporan menyatakan beliau tidak akan bertanding dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang.

Khairy berkata, apa yang penting adalah amanah yang diberikan oleh rakyat dan pucuk pemimpin dalam memberikan khidmat terbaik sebagai Ahli Parlimen.

“Saya dah cakap apa yang saya nak cakap, yang paling penting kita buat kerja untuk pastikan kemenangan Barisan Nasional (BN) pada Pilihan Raya Umum nanti.

“Jangan risau, saya pasti akan kerja keras membantu Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak bagi menarik sokongan gologan muda,” Katanya ketika ditemui Sinar Harian di pejabatnya, semalam.

Khairy berkata, apa yang penting sekarang adalah kerjasama semua pihak terutama parti terutamanya parti-parti komponen bagi membawa kemenangan untuk BN.

“Adalah lebih baik menghentikan spekulasi. Bekerja lebih keras adalah perkara utama yang perlu dilakukan,”katanya.

Katanya, sesiapa yang menjadi calon bagi BN akan di tentukan oleh Najib yang juga Pengerusi BN dan bukan individu terbabit yang menawarkan diri.

Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan UMNO Negeri dan Presiden parti komponen boleh mencadangkan mana-mana individu yang difikirkan sesuai dan layak sebagai Ahli Parlimen dan Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN).

“Nama yang dicadangkan itu tidak bermakna akan dipilih sebagai calon kerana beberapa saringan ketat akan dilakukan sebelum diputuskan Perdana Menteri sendiri,” katanya.
