After hearing submission in chambers by both counsels for Anwar and Nalla, High Court Judge YA Justice Dato’ Su Geok Yiam struck off the Defendant’s Statement of Defence on the grounds that it was frivolous, vexatious and tantamount to an abuse of court process.
Anwar’s lawyers filed in an application to strike off the Statement of Defence by Nallakaruppan after the latter had failed to furnish particulars as directed by a court order made on 28.8.2009 to provide further and better particulars to the allegations made by him.

The allegation was made by Nallakaruppan on 23 August 2008 was published in Mingguan Malaysia under the article entitled “Didakwa Terima 60Juta.”
The Court further directed the damages to be paid by Nallakaruppan to Anwar and quantum will be assessed before the Court’s Registrar.

The Save Malaysia Stop Lynas (SMSL) group today protested outside Parliament, demanding the right to speak in the Dewan Rakyat.
SMSL chief Tan Bun Teet said this was necessary because the House could provide immunity for them to speak out against Lynas.
“If we speak without immunity, we will affect our case as Lynas has filed a defamation suit against us,” Tan said.
The protest by some 100 people at the Parliament entrance came ahead of the debate on the report of the parliamentary select committee on the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (Lamp).
As some MPs drove in to Parliament, they lowered their windows and gave the group thumbs up while others honked in support.
They were later met by a group of MPs led by Sungai Siput MP Dr Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj, who escorted them into the Parliament building.
Addressing the media later, Tan said group had requested for immunity during the PSC hearing in Kuantan but was turned down.
“Because of this, we had to walk out because we could not reveal the truth about Lynas should there be is a court case,” he said.
‘PSC report a foregone conclusion’
Tan also criticised the PSC report, pointing out that it was a forgone conclusion as the panel chief led by Higher Education Minister Mohamed Khaled Nordin had described Lamp as safe even before the committee concluded its work.
Lynas had on April 20 filed a lawsuit against SMSL for “false and misleading” statements made against Lynas through news portal Free Malaysia Today, which was also named in the lawsuit.
The SMSL group arrived at Parliament House today from the Kuala Lumpur High Court complex to attend the case, which has since been postponed to July 19.
Meeting the group earlier, Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar said they will work to get time for Tan to speak in the House, even though it is not likely to be allowed.
“Parliament is normally for MPs to speak. Our bid is likely to be rejected but I will still try and bring it up with Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz,” Nurul Izzah said.
However, she assured the group that their concerns would be raised during the debate.
