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 SamsuriMokhtar, 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 BarisanNasional.
