TTF: Penerbit Sarawak Report, Clare Rewcastle Brown, hari ini dikhabarkan kecundang dalam kesemua lima permohonan interlokutori Dato’ Seri Abdul Hadi Awang terhadapnya di Mahakhamah Tinggi London. Keputusan hakim yang memihak kepada Hadi sekaligus menyokong hujah The Third Force bahawa segala apa yang diwar-warkan Sarawak Report selama ini berkenaan 1MDB dan Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak adalah tidak berasas, apatah lagi Clare gagal mengemukakan penerbitan-penerbitan beliau ke Mahkhamah London bagi menyokong hujahnya bahawa Najib terdesak menghulurkan wang suapan berjumlah RM90 juta kepada Hadi atas sebab-sebab tertentu.
KUALA LUMPUR: Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown has been ordered to pay £28,900 (RM155,790) to Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang by a United Kingdom court, according to the Pas president’s lawyer.
In a Facebook posting, Wan Rohimi Wan Daud said the London High Court had handed down the decision in a defamation suit filed by Hadi in the UK.
“TGHH (Tok Guru Haji Hadi) has won all five interlocutory applications! Sarawak Report has been ordered to pay costs of £28,900,” he posted.
Hadi’s political secretary Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, when contacted, told the New Straits Times Press that they had “received positive news” from London.
“(Yes) we received positive news. More details will be given in a press statement tomorrow (Tuesday),” he said.
Hadi filed the defamation suit against Rewcastle-Brown at the London High Court on April 21 last year following a Sarawak Report article which appeared on Aug 6 2016 which alleged that he had received RM90 million to get Pas to support Umno and Barisan Nasional.
