December and March hearings for Zakir Naik’s defamation suits against Ramasamy

— The High Court today set Dec 20 to 22, 2021 and March 14 to 17, 2022 to hear two defamation suits filed by Dr Zakir Naik against Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy.

Two suits filed separately in October and December 2019, on the allegation that Ramasamy issued defamatory statements involving the independent preacher, besides linking Dr Zakir to the LTTE issue.

Lawyer Datuk Akberdin Abdul Kader, who represented Dr Zakir as the plaintiff, said that Judge Datuk Mohd Firuz Jaffril set Dec 20 to 22, 2021 and March 14 to 17, 2022 as trial dates.

“The trial dates previously set by the court, March 22 to 26, have been vacated due to the implementation of the Conditional Movement Control Order at that time,” he told reporters after case management before Judge Mohd Firuz.

Akberdin said that his team would call five witnesses, including Dr Zakir, to testify, while the defendant presented six witnesses.

He also said that the court set Nov 22 for further case management for the parties involved.

On Oct 16, 2019, Dr Zakir sued Ramasamy for allegedly issuing defamatory statements, which were uploaded on social media sites and news portals between 2016 and 2019.

In the statement of claim, the plaintiff claimed that on April 10, 2016, Ramasamy had defamed him by calling him (Dr Zakir) by an unsavoury name on the defendant’s Facebook page, and the defendant also issued a defamatory statement against the plaintiff on Oct 1, 2017, when an article about the preacher was published on the Free Malaysia Today (FMT) news portal on that day.

Dr Zakir also claimed that, on Aug 11, 2019, the defendant had manipulated his speech during an event organised by the Kelantan government, and it was also published on the FMT portal on the same day.

Ramasamy, on Aug 20, 2019, was alleged to have issued a defamatory statement against the plaintiff, published by the international media, India Today.

In December 2019, Dr Zakir again sued Ramasamy after alleging that the defendant defamed him, through comments posted on The Malaysian Insight portal on the LTTE issue.

COVID-19: Govt willing to spend to save lives and economy – Muhyiddin

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the government is spending a lot to combat the COVID-19 pandemic because it is important to save lives and the national economy.

The prime minister said the pandemic was very challenging because it posed a threat to people’s lives and battered the economy, forcing the government to spend huge amounts of money to buy medicines, ensure enough hospital beds and increase the number of doctors and nurses.

“We are doing this because saving every life matters. The government has already spent RM7 billion to RM8 billion to overcome the COVID-19 problem, and this figure does not include the money for buying vaccines,” he said at a meet-the-people session at the Institute of Teachers Education (IPG) Tun Abdul Razak Campus here today.

He said the government had to act fast to book vaccines for the national immunisation programme because people’s lives are precious.

Muhyiddin expressed satisfaction with Sarawak’s vaccination programme and promised to ask the Health Ministry to send more COVID-19 vaccines to the state.

He said the country had remained peaceful and united despite grappling with the unprecedented challenges posed by the spread of COVID-19 the past one year.

Muhyiddin said he had to deal with the pandemic the moment he took over the country’s administration after the previous prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, resigned following a political crisis.

“A decision had to be taken to enforce the Movement Control Order (MCO) so that the people would remain safe in the face of the pandemic throughout the country. Although its (MCO) impact was great, its aim was to protect the people,” he added.

He said the government had to strike a balance between protecting lives and livelihoods, as the country suffered losses of RM2.4 billion per day during the MCO last year, which caused almost all sectors of the economy to be shut.

The government had announced various aid packages worth RM300 billion to help groups impacted by the pandemic, and the situation was recovering with almost all sectors of the economy already back in operation except for industries like tourism, he added.

“We’re back in business and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel,” said Muhyiddin, adding that the administration of the country must be strong and uninterrupted so that the government can give full focus on administering the country and the people effectively.

In this regard, he urged the people of Sarawak to continue their support for the current federal government, to enable it to continue helping the state to achieve its vision of becoming a developed state by 2030.

Touching on his latest visit to the state, the first full visit since becoming prime minister in March last year, Muhyiddin said that there was an extraordinary feeling this time around, as it felt like returning to his hometown.

“It is very special. I was touched when the Chief Minister (Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg) said that GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak) will continue to give me strong support as Prime Minister,” he said.

The meet-the-people session was one of the programmes he attended in his hectic working visit to Sarawak, which started yesterday, and Muhyiddin is expected to inspect the Sarawak General Hospital upgrading project this afternoon before returning to Kuala Lumpur.

PM Muhyiddin touched by former penghulu’s prayer

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said he was touched by the prayer recited by a frail former ‘penghulu’ (village head) he visited during the Ziarah Kasih programme in Kampung Sindang here today.

He said that Aris Johari, 74, one of the villagers he visited under the programme, had recited a prayer for the prime minister to continue with efforts to help the people.

“The prayers recited by ordinary people for leaders are extraordinary. Leaders like us always pray for our people to have good lives,” he said.

He said this when speaking at a get-together with community leaders at the Institute of Teachers Education (IPG) Tun Abdul Razak Campus, which he attended after participating in the Ziarah Kasih programme.

His wife Puan Sri Noorainee Abdul Rahman, Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg and several federal and state ministers were also present.

Meanwhile, another resident of Kampung Sindang, Selha Slet, 67, a single mother of five children, said it was like a dream when Muhyiddin visited her home and spent about 20 minutes talking with her and her family.

“I had palpitations as soon as I found out that the prime minister wanted to visit us. All this while I only watched him on television, but today he was before my own eyes. I feel very lucky; our ‘rezeki’ that he was willing to come to our house.

“Our prime minister is very friendly and caring about the people,” said Selha, whose husband died in 2014.
