Today's case at the Putrajaya is about Lynas's appeal to keep the defamation case in KL court and here is the outcome brief by SMSL lawyers:
The Court of Appeal this morning unanimously dismissed LYNAS' appeal with costs of RM20,000.00 and ruled that the High Court judge was correct in deciding to transfer the case to the Kuantan High Court. The Court of Appeal was of the view that the forum conveniens (most appropriate forum) to hear the defamation suit is the Kuantan High Court.
