SHAH ALAM: PKR chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan filed an RM2mil suit against a blogger at the High Court registry here for allegedly defaming him.
Mohd Saiful and his lawyer Zamri Idrus, however, refused to divulge the identity of the individual, who blogs at www.pahangdaily.blogspot.com.
“Let us serve the writ on him first before disclosing his name,” said Zamri.
Mohd Saiful, who read out from a prepared statement, said the blogger had defamed him in six articles posted from Sept 2008 onwards.
Mohd Saiful came into prominence last year not long after the 12th general election when he had lodged a police report alleging he had been sodomised by Anwar.
Anwar pleaded not guilty to sodomising his former aide on Aug 7. The trial is on-going.
If convicted, he can be jailed up to 20 years and whipped for voluntarily committing unnatural sex under Section 377B of the Penal Code
