May hearing on Feer libel suit
A TWO-DAY hearing will be held next month to decide if the defamation suits taken by the Prime Minister and Minister Mentor against the Far Eastern Economic Review (Feer) magazine will go to trial.
Lawyers for PM Lee Hsien Loong and MM Lee Kuan Yew had applied for a summary judgment last August, arguing for the High Court to rule on the case without it going to trial.
The court can do so if it is satisfied that the arguments presented by Feer are baseless.
But Feer's lawyers are opposing the move as they want a trial.
On Monday, at a closed-door High Court hearing, they sought more time to respond to the two leaders' applications.
Justice Woo Bih Li has given Feer until tomorrow to present their arguments.
Want to sue people yet don't dare to go trial and face people in court? Like this where got any credibility left? Talk big only but comes to action all hide hide behind the court like cowards hahahaha!
